Last week, I found myself in Marshalls with the intention of looking at shoes. I was on the hunt for new boots for fall. On the way into the store, I told myself that I should not/would not go near the home stuff because I DO NOT need another throw pillow. Or mug. And yet I somehow ended up at the register with this pillow in my cart. And no boots. I spotted the pillow out of the corner of my eye and it was just so perfect that it had to come home with me. Plus, it cost significantly less than the boots I considered. And throw pillows just make me happier than shoes. I am weird that way. And that very same day, I also brought home yet another mug from Target. I love the "warm and cozy sentiment".
Forrest had a great time in the mountains this weekend. He ran around and played like a puppy. And if you look at him from his good side like in the photo below, you would never know he was sick.
I got my youngest boy, Matty, to sit still long enough to take a picture with me.
Then he was back to his new favorite activity, skateboarding. He is obsessed with it. I have spent many hours at the skate park near our house watching him practice. It scares me to watch him on the ramps, especially after a summer of learning just how fragile our brains really are. But, boys will be boys and I can't hold him back.
And here is a rare shot of our other golden, Keeper. She isn't a fan of posing for pictures either, but my middle son managed to get a good picture of her.
On one of our leaf peeping rides, Billy and I spotted this fireplace in the woods. The house that it once stood inside of is long gone, but the fireplace still remains. It is fun to think about what sort of family may have warmed themselves by this fireplace during a cold and harsh Adirondack winter long ago. And the blogger in me can't help but think about how I would decorate all that stone. Just gorgeous...and so much history.
It turned out to be a beautiful weekend for leaf peeping and I can't wait to share some pictures from a drive we took this past weekend.
I hope your week is off to a great start! Thanks for stopping by today.
