I feel like the blog world is filled with people who love fall. Everywhere I read of new fall recipes, ideas for fall outfits, and love for the changing leaves, crisper air, and Halloween. (I won't lie, Halloween is my least favorite holiday - and it's not even close.)
For awhile I tried to convince myself that fall isn't so bad, and tried out these new fall outfits (still too hot for them in Utah), tried to enjoy the crisp air and the falling leaves, and tried to make myself believe that this season change is good.
However, what fall really means to me is school, which means not seeing Kevin, ever. I don't really know of anyone busier than Kevin, and I will spare the details on his daily events. Needless to say, I am missing the warm summer when we lived in our bare feet and ate popsicles for breakfast and lunch, and went to the park in the middle of the day and read whatever books we chose. I miss the thrill of planning the wedding this summer, and counting down the days to it. This summer was the best of my life, and I am so sad that it is gone now.
But when Kevin brought this little guy home from the grocery store last night I had to smile. He said we needed a little bit of fall spirit in our home and he thought I wouldn't mind such a small pumpkin.
We named him Thumpkin. (Inspired by this scene).
