our first day of autumn

we bought some pumpkins from trader joes and prepared sugar cookie dough ... the boys took a nap ... i drank a beer and hung a wreath i made from dried goldenrod ... we picked eleanor up from school and found a giant leaf on the walk back ... we baked our leaf cookies and frosted them yellow and pink ... i had an emotional day because i ate too many and really shouldn't have drank a beer at noon ... but i have a really good feeling about this new season ... i want to be more thankful and learn to go easy on myself ... we are now planning our halloween costumes and wolfgang's second birthday ... so many wonderful things ahead. xo.
