Each morning this week, I’ve woken and just felt that touch of autumn crisp in the air. It’s SO welcome here. Summer in Southern CA seemed to have barged it’s way in much before spring was finished, and I’m a bit over the dry summer. This year my family opened a little pumpkin patch at our farm stand, and it certainly helped usher in the new season for us. The kids usually have a pretty good case of Photographer’s Child Syndrome (I’d get sick of a camera in my face all the time too), but they were so excited about all those pumpkins. They gave me some hearty smiles with a little dose of silly, the best gift of all for their mama. I’m happy to have some new photos for the wall!
