For weeks now I've been craving fall. We had a few tempting days of cooler weather, before it heated back up again. And stores are beginning to get mums. I'm convinced I must get several mums for my front porch. I'm not sure what brought on this craving, I don't think I've ever owned a mum in my life. But it just seems like the fall thing to do.
We are currently in Ohio for a wedding and hometown-visiting. Yesterday we rode with some locals to a local produce stand. They had tons of pumpkins and mums and decorating corn. I had Bryan restrain me and remind me that we have a 10 hour ride in someone else's car and could not import fall to the South this early.
Last year, I suffered a minor case of fall-itis and purchased a pumpkin at the very beginning of October. They rotted before Halloween. Oh well. We still enjoyed our pumpkins for several weeks.
I did purchase, for a whopping 30 cents, a small white pumpkin. Its adorable. So adorable I want to name it.
Can't wait to get it home and have it as my little reminder that fall is on the way!
