German apple pancake, made by Harry -- our other favorite fall breakfast (along with pumpkin waffles) -- to start the day off right.
A breathtaking drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway (we've driven along it so many times, yet I'm always amazed at how beautiful it is).
A hike up to Linville Falls.
Maia contemplating the falls from a perch that would probably give my mom a heart attack (don't worry, Mom, we kept her safe).
A rare photo with my girls (I'm usually the one behind the camera).
Daphne getting my attention (be gentle, sweetheart!).
Some quick bedroom changes, using what we had in the house and your feedback. Thank you so, so much for all of the wonderful ideas! This is what I could do quickly, with what we had in the house: white comforter cover, white curtains, splashes of red and yellow (testing them). I'm also planning to paint the trim around the little window white again and am keeping many of your other color suggestions in mind. As much as I would love to do a whirlwind bedroom redo, I will half to go slowly with other changes for budget reasons. But I'll keep you posted! And if you have any other feedback after seeing this photo, send it on! I love hearing your ideas!
Here's one more pic, with some orange added by Daphne's Halloween pajamas...
