Hello, November!

Well, my most favorite month of the year has come and gone. Now we are on to November! Fall is fading quickly, but there is still much to enjoy!

Remember when I talked about the trees across this street first in this post and then again in this post? Well, this is what they looked like yesterday...
And today when I peeked outside they are looking more bare. It was quite windy yesterday (though freakishly warm...) and it is still windy today. When ever I glance out my window it is like a blizzard of golden leaves falling to the ground.
A bench on our deck. I just loved the look of the fallen leaves scattered amongst the pillows...
We can barely see our grass right now. Cleaning this stuff up is a bitch...which is why we are not going to do it this year! We are calling in the professionals to take care of it for us!
Our yard, though hard to tell in these pics, is huge. And we are surrounded by trees.
Kevin had just taken the leaf blower to the driveway and deck a couple hours before I took these pics. In no time everything was covered again.
See how thrilled he looks!!!
The leaves get stuck in the windshield wipers and the grill. They are pretty but no doubt they can be a nuisance, too.
In other news, as I mentioned in a previous post, our tenth anniversary was this past Friday. My amazing hubby surprised with something I never thought I would own...
diamond earrings!!!!!!!
Aren't they beautiful?!? I am not a big jewelry person. I am quite content with my engagement ring and wedding band. But I have always said if I were to have another piece of valuable jewelry I would want diamond studs. But I never in a million years thought I would have them now. He totally floored me!!!!!! I love him so much!!!
Aren't they pretty?!?!!!


Up next....
flag football, Halloween, and Thanksgiving decor!!!

I've got lots more pictures to share on this random Sunday so I am spreading the posts out!

Ah, November... it has its own unique charm to it; although I already kinda, sorta miss October. :)

I am glad you had a great anniversary. I looove the diamond studs! So pretty. :)

I'm kinda partial to October, too. Happy Anniversary, the earrings are lovely.
