I have been working on a few projects that are utterly autumn related.
Going through many photographs of autumns past.
And while we aren't ready to part with summer quite yet...
I have been enjoying it sooo much, that I thought I would bring you along for a smidge.
Jump in my garden for quick sec, won'tcha?
I was on a hunt for some fave magical autumn moments.
Some of those are definitely from the gyspy wagon at Halloween.
There were sooo many photos to choose from throughout the years.
I grabbed a few to relive with you today.
These pics are inspiring me for the months to come as well.
I have had so much fun these last few years in the blogosphere with you.
These pics are a constant reminder of all we have conjured.
Haven't we had such great times?
The gypsy wagon all spookified.
I have such fun out there I tell ya.
I love when Mister Lovee joins in and becomes the fortune teller.
Offering me a wee treat.
He does all his own costumes and is soooo into the spirit of it all.
He quite surprised me that year when I saw an old witch rifling through the bushes.
He even acted in Old Tucson in the 80's.
He's got endless tricks up his sleeve, that one.
What does the crystal ball tell you?
What a wonderfully magical time.
I can almost smell the caramel apples and popcorn.
The candles, the pumpkins.
I am sooo inspired to have the best autumn ever.
What about you?
There is such magic that swirls in with the rains of late summer.
We had one of the hugest storms ever on Friday night.
Soooooo much rain, it was amazing.
Yesterday the whole place felt like a swamp, and the gypsy wagon was extra mysterious.
Odd when the desert turns to swamp on rare flooded monsoon moments.
With vines crawling all around the wagon.
Cool breeze sweeps into our crazy heat wave of endless days of 100+ degrees.
Reminding of what is to come.
My mind flutters with ideas and things I want to do.
Sooo many things.
All have to do with playing of some sort, of course.
As I get older I feel younger.
I am not sure what exactly is going on.
Is this normal, and should I feel this way, I ask you?
I have more frolic and skip in my heart than ever before.
Is growing up a choice?
I don't know any of these answers really.
But what I do know is that I want to make each day as wonderful as can be.
Live in the moment.
And, most of all, have a blast!!

What sort of delicious shenanigans do you think we should plunge into?
