Yesterday was a gorgeous fall day.
The temperatures are getting cooler, the sky is a crisp, clear blue and though the leaves aren't changing yet, fall is in the air.
I took the kids to the park to enjoy what felt like a perfect day.
We weren't the only ones with such a great idea.
I put a quilt down in the grass, under a tree with beautiful sunlight filtering through the leaves, and laid Mia down to drink her bottle.
Austin played with some of the other kids and I enjoyed the beauty that surrounded me.
It was not just the beauty of the season I was enjoying, but also the beauty of my life.
I have two beautiful, healthy, happy kids, a husband who adores me and family and friends who surround me with love and support.
I am blessed and I don't take that for granted at all.
(Sorry for the sappiness, but the changing of seasons deeply affects me for some reason.)
After Mia finished her bottle I decided that it was time that she try a swing for the first time.
She loved it!
She was really mostly hanging there, but her smile was nearly constant.
I could stare at that happy face all day.
I sure wish I could bottle days like yesterday so that when the dark, cold, dreary days of winter hit, I could open them up and enjoy the perfection!
