autumn for breakfast

i am getting achy for autumn to present itself to us here.  one morning last week we woke up to a chilly fifty-something degrees.  the boys practically thought we had moved to the yukon.  {they've adapted to this warm weather much better than i have.}  but it was only a ghost of colder days.  it was gone before lunch time.  the next morning the sun was shining and the a/c was running as i chauffeured them to school once again.

this morning i opened the windows to find that a mist had settled itself over our backyard in the early hours.  it looked like the kind of mist that nips your nose and tingles your cheeks.  it looked like it could be autumn out there.  so i set off to the kitchen to make a breakfast fit for the season, not daring to open the door and find that the beautiful fog was actually warm and soggy.  in our mostly empty dining room, we sat around the table and enjoyed homemade cinnamon raisin oatmeal, orange slices and cinnamon toast.  it was delicious and i still haven't opened a single door.  i decided i should make autumn for breakfast more often.  it might just pull me through these final days of slummer.

happy weekend.

good morning sunshine

yesterday morning after dropping the boys off for school, k and i came home to the most beautiful sunlight shining through the trees beside the house.  being that i haven't taken her ten-month-old photo yet, i saw this as the perfect opportunity.  so i ran inside and grabbed my camera and got some sweet shots of her all bathed in the morning light.  bed head and all!

oh how i love this sweet baby girl!  i haven't updated the blog like i promised and my baby is ten months old.  how does time get away from me so quickly?!

happy wednesday!

xoxo. ash
