It’s the last day of September and it’s finally starting to feel like fall in middle Tennessee. Although, I won’t hold my breath as the temperature is likely to spike back up. Also at the end of this post I have some free fall printables for you!
Fall is my favorite season. Pumpkin flavored everything, soup in the crockpot, light jackets, windows open, the leaves change into gorgeous oranges, reds, and yellows. It’s just the best! I’m so thankful that God allows for new seasons, not just in the weather though but in life as well.
I’m looking forward to next fall. Cora Beth will be here and my husband will be home. We’ll get to go to the pumpkin patch, take long walks as a family in the crisp air, we’ll experience Cora Beth’s first Halloween and Thanksgiving, and we’ll get to do all the family stuff that we will have missed out on.
It’s so easy to focus and romanticize about next fall that I’m afraid I’ll miss this fall and this season. This season of being pregnant, which will only last about 2 and a half more month with this baby. Which, as much as I’m ready to meet this baby girl a little part of me will be sad when she leaves my womb. It’ll no longer just be me and her. I’ll have to share her with the world. I won’t get to feel her little kicks anymore and carrying her everywhere I go will require much effort and stuff.
I don’t want to miss out on this fall because it’s the last season of pregnancy before the season of parenthood will begin. I know it’ll be the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced but I want to savor the time before it comes because there will be no going back.
And on top of all that I have to be careful to not wish away a whole year for the sake of the season of deployment being over (but oh how I wish it was). The Lord created seasons with a purpose and I want to enjoy each one, even when it’s hard.
Because fall is my favorite I created two free fall art prints to celebrate the season! If you’re already a subscriber, you can download them in the Free Printables Library (The password is at the bottom of every e-mail I send.) Or you can click here to subscribe and gain access!
I hope you enjoy your fall and whatever season of life you’re currently in! Until next time,
