September came and brought some cooler temps and a bit of rain, and I was like “yasssssss” Fall is here!

Then October showed up and was like “hold my pumpkin spice latte”. So much sunshine, pure blue skies, temps in the low-70’s, and no rain. Dude, it’s been crazy here and I’m both grateful and ready to get our traditional fall weather on track and started.

Basically, I want a fire in our fireplace. I want to be cozy and warm and I want it to be real fall. They say it supposed to be coming later this week. We’ll see. We’ll see.

This tree on my drive home gives me all the feels.

It is from the creator of Mad Men, so it’s gorgeous stylized and all that jam. The first episode had a ton of French subtitles so it may not have been the best thing to watch while trying to type, but it was really good. Weird. But good.

The smart people on Facebook have suggested The Ozarks next for Troy and me to start. Have you watched it? Thoughts?
