Fall is in the Air

With the change in the weather (its been about 70 degrees and breezy during the day, 50 degrees at night here in Ohio) and the leaves beginning to change color, my fall senses have been tingling. Naturally, I made my way over to Hobby Lobby to craft and welcome in the season! Now i know some of you are probably saying we still have several weeks to go of summer, but that can’t stop my love of fall!

One of my favorite crafts are wreaths. I love a good homemade wreath because it can to really spice up the entrance into your house.

My favorite thing about fall is white pumpkins, hence our wedding, which was white pumpkin themed! So I decided to incorporate white pumpkins into my wreath this year, along with white sunflowers to keep the theme rolling. To add a pop of color and sparkle, I threw in some burgundy and orange leaves with a few acorns and pinecones.

Finally, on each and every wreath that I make, I always put our metal S on it. This was the first item that I had purchased for both Austin and I and I that had to do with our last name. I absolutely love that it always sits on the front door, welcoming everyone to our house.

Oh Deer!

It seems as if the unbearably hot days have come and gone. Today it was so beautiful outside, I just couldn’t resist taking Goose to the park and skipping the gym. We went to Sidecut Metropark, which we seem to be visiting quite a bit latley!

For some reason it felt like we had the park all to ourselves for once, seeing only a few people during our hike. It was a peaceful 2.5 miles, listening to the birds chirp and the leaves that have recently begun to fall crunch as we walked. We were so quiet that we came across a doe about ten feet in front of us. Unfortunately, I was not quick enough to take a picture before the doe darted off. So we went on our way.

Not far up the trail, we ran into two more deer who seemed to be enjoying a little afternoon snack. They were kind enough to let us walk right on by. Surprisingly, Goose didn’t even bat an eye at them.

This lady even stuck her tongue out for the photo op!

And towards the end of our hike we ran into a little buck! The buck didn’t waist much time on us though, he was very busy and must have been late for a meeting or something like that because before we knew it, he was gone!

After the deer extravaganza, Goose and I took a nice 1.5 mile run to end the evening off on a strong note. I hoping for more nights like this to come! Who’s says that being healthy can’t be fun?!
