Before Fall Slips Away…

Confession:  the hubs left to go hunting on Sunday and I’ve pulled out the Christmas tree.  I know.  It’s not even Thanksgiving yet.

But I couldn’t help it.  I had teenagers idling the week away and the urge to get Christmas rocking and rolling over took me.  It’s not up yet.  And it’s not decorated.  But it’s been dragged out of the the storage area in my basement, ready to go at any moment.

And then this morning I was convicted.

For not staying in the moment.  For not enjoying fall and all i’s beauty and attitudes of gratitude and coziness before rushing off to crafting, wrapping, decorating, Christmas-ing.

So I paused… was drawn to, really, and captured these before fall slips away into winter and gift-buying and Christmas-ing.

And this, friends, is what I get to enjoy every morning over coffee.  Here’s hoping you can slow down enough to savor the last of fall, too.

Have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Thanks for sharing those sights of fall with us! We’ve been having some crazy warmer days — and the box elder bugs keep hibernating and then waking up again and hibernating again! And I can’t believe you pulled out your Christmas tree already!

    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving, my friend!

  3. Our yard is covered with leaves….the beautiful rainbow of colors on the trees are going’s a little sad for me to see the beauty fade each day…but it is time for Mother Nature to rest…It is nice that I still have my pretty petunias to look at in the morning on the porch….
    I am taking a little break from cooking, cleaning, and decorating for Christmas …
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!

  4. It is absolutely gorgeous in Wisconsin today. We are talking sweatshirt weather! Definitely taking it all in. I remember many Thanksgivings with snow so we will take it! It is hard to find a balance. You want to embrace the holiday spirit and enjoy all that comes with the season, but you don’t want to miss where you are. Nothing wrong with dusting off the Christmas tree! Happy Thanksgiving!!
