Sunday Morning #CoffeeTalk


For some reason, I’m not feeling the Coffee Talk this morning, so this is a short one. This has been such an off week for me, with the whole school starting before Labor Day thing, and then a 4- day weekend and a 4- day work week. I thought it was Thursday until lunchtime on Friday, when I realized I was a whole day off.

Then I hosted a social media workshop yesterday, which was fun, but it was almost like I missed Saturday, and suddenly it’s Sunday. WHAT!??

I had a nice walk/run this morning. The rain yesterday took our hot, humid weather with it, and I could finally exercise without feeling like I was suffocating. The cornfields have been cut down, a sure sign of fall.

I’ve been trying to photograph more fall outfits. We have to take advantage of the times when the light is good and my husband is home, so some mornings we take 2 or 3 sets of pictures. This morning we banged out 3 sets before church. WOOT!

We have family photos scheduled this week, and I haven’t even started thinking about what we are going to wear. I’ve sort of been waiting to see what the weather’s gonna be like since we are doing outdoor photos, but now it’s suddenly here. Coordinating 5 people is no easy feat, but I guess it will come together. I’m excited to see how they turn out.

Let’s see, what else. The kids have all settled into the school routine without much drama. That is not always the case, so I’m truly grateful. Marching band season is well under way, and I’m already starting to plan the 3 birthdays we have coming up. My children all have milestone birthdays this year — 10, 13 and 16, so they are each helping me plan something special that I hope will make this year particularly memorable for them. Fortunately only one wants a full-out birthday party. I don’t think I could handle 3 of those in one year. Usually they take turns, but as they get older, they are more interested in events or experiences to celebrate their birthdays, and that is just fine with me.

That’s about it for me. I’ve been working on my posts for this week, and I have a lot of cute fall outfits, a post about my new glasses (quite a few have asked about them), and maybe a fun fall recipe if I can get my act together. I hope you have a lovely rest of the weekend!
