Days like these......

..... make me sooo anxious for Autumn! 
Every year I make a 
fall journal to record all the events and 
memories from 
September 1 through Thanksgiving.
This is last year's journal...one of my favorites!
I may have posted this last year when I
first put it together but I wanted to
re-post in anticipation of fall and I am getting
ready to put this year's together! You will
notice this one is still missing a few pictures...
I suck at printing pictures in a timely manner!

Kristen - I love it and I want to make one! Fall is my FAVORITE time of the year. Ok, will you email me and give me some tips? Like what size binder, etc?

Guess what - My hubs, Stephen and I are having a mini Thanksgiving celebration on Sunday. {meaning- we plan on cranking down the a.c. and cooking up some goodies!}

Thanks for sharing!

That is an awesome journal! Great idea! Autumn is the best time of the year, especially in New England. We are so lucky, aren't we?

How Awesome is this!! I especially love the black and white clear divider! Loving it! Gosh if only I could get myself together like that. Ah, what a thought! Absolutely love it!

Thank for reading, really I appreciate it. I did actually pick up a book to study. I haven't done that in 2 months. But only got a chapter done, one can only take so much Wind & Lateral Forces design on a Friday night, right?? lol Thanks again!!!! :-) I will be back at it tomorrow. Yeapie!

What a clever book! I like how you saved the perfect little leaf.

Normally I find fall to be depressing, but not after seeing it through your eyes :D

Sigh, I totally love these. I bet someday you will combine these journals and write one bang up book about fall in New England... and I want an autographed copy!

Tell Kevin I keep waiting for a post on the Cardinals being in first place in their division... and a comment or two on Wainwright and Pujols...
