Hi there and happy first Friday of fall!
I am so happy to be part of the “Autumn Welcome” fall tour of homes this week, where I have joined with 35 other bloggers to show our fall homes. If you are new here, welcome! If you are here often, so glad you joined me today!
With each change of season, I am reminded how quickly time is passing.
It feels as though I was just anticipating summer and the arrival of our precious baby boy.
Now that fall has arrived, it is a reminder of how quickly the boys are growing up.
So as we head into this new season, I have vowed to keep things really simple.
I love this time of year and everything that it brings. Cooler temps, changing leaves, comfort food, football games…
But this time of year can also bring so much stress.
So I am making a conscious effort to savor the days.
Say no to invitations and obligations. Focus on what is most important.
This year, I am not making a fall bucket list.
And I probably won’t make a winter one either.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the concept and have even done them in the past. But I am keeping it simple. Giving myself grace.
Because what every mom needs is grace.
Grace to slow down. Grace to accept the messes.
When the boys are older, I have oodles of fall day trips I want to experience with them. Sure, we may hit up a few fun outings this year, but I am not going to stress about it.
I am giving myself grace this fall and holiday season.
And I encourage you to do the same.
