    I think we have the same front door. Sadly my porch is covered in plastic baby toys instead of pumpkins and adorable birds.I did put up the fall wreath though!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your front porch pics, but I think we need one of the entire porch, so we can see it all put together….pretty please! Looks amazing. Fall is just the best!

  7. David and your family are in my prayers today.

    The porch is beautiful. I switched my spring / summer door hanger for a welcome autumn sign this weekend :) That is as far as I’ve gotten!

    Wow … gorgeous. I planted fall flowers in my planters a couple weeks ago when it was starting to cool off … now it’s warm again! Your porch, though, is stunning! Thinking and praying for you today.

    I <3 Fall :) Pumpkins/ Mums/ Leafs/ Hayrides/ Candy Corn/ Corn Mazes/ Halloween!!!! My favorite time of year!

  11. I did our porch this morning. Two grapevine wreaths, sunflowers, pumpinks, mums, wicker…..and a few jeweled spiders from Pottery Barn for good measure. 😉

    Our Fall started last weekend with a hour and half hay ride. The weather was great and a fun time by all. After the hay ride we all filled our bellies with Chili, potato soup, bean soup and all kinds of good snacks that people brought. The kids loved it and what make it fun is they are easy to watch, they are contained to the hay wagon. Look out when we finished kids ran everywhere. We also had a fire with s’mores. What more can you ask for. Happy Fall to All Prayers to your family Lisa

    to get ready for fall, i’ve been doing the usual things, you know- apple picking (i’m from Michigan, where the good apples grow), making plans to pick pumpkins, drinking cider, wearing hoodies, i’ve also been looking at and looking at their fall styles. TOMS is a really cool company that’s also based in California. check ’em out!
