We interrupt this cliff-hanger for a very important birthday.

I have always fallen in love in the fall.

The kindest boy I dated in high school. My nicest beau in college. The most amazing man I married when I was 25.

I fell for them all in the fall.

It should come as no surprise then that the sweetest one, my little boy, was born in October.

Funny, creative, sharp, sensitive, kind, energetic. He is a gift to his father and me.

Happy Birthday, pumpkin pie. I love you every season.

Happy Birthday!

Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him. Psalm 127:3 NLT

Time for a song that is quintessentially autumn. Time for a Moondance.

    Every time you post, I say “that’s my favorite”! Today “is” my favorite. Love the picture of Theo and how interesting that I call my Matthew my “pumpkin pie”! Children are priceless and they keep us young. Who needs Botox anyway??

    Pace yourself with moving!! I hear your angst!! By the way, I am “officially” living in Cowtown so the signs tell me. And the cows walking around are the final endorsement. Good news, I get to pick the location of retirment!! Get yourself a deal before the first box is loaded!!!

    Big hugs,
    Happy Birthday Theo!!!!

    • Thanks, Elizabeth. I agree–these guys keep us young for sure. They don’t let us sit down long enough to age!

      We’re taking the relo stuff one step at a time. I think we’ll be in driving distance of you, so a visit will be in order. My pumpkin pie has never been to your “country,” and is anxious to see it. BTW I’ve negotiated several deals out of this one… :)

      PS: I got your voicemail and will call to dish soon!

  3. So sweet. As a mother of a 14 year old son, it was really just moments ago it seems we celebrated his birthday when he was T’s age. It going by faster each year. Relish in the moments!
