OK, I know fall doesn’t technically start till September 22, but I feel that the beginning of fall really starts around Labor Day. School is back in session. Starbucks starts serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and mums are available at Costco. They have great ones by the way!

Here we are doing some of those quintessential fall things last year! Can’t wait to make new memories this year! What’s on your list?
My first piece for MTB Project is live now on balance bikes. You may even recognize the little one featured in the top photo. I just wrapped up my article on virtual doctors for Colorado Parent magazine for the October issue. I’m hoping to get some more article assignments too with the seasons starting to change. Look for the fall printables for free download by the end of this coming week. I am also really excited about a collaborative post that my friend Lindsay and I are beginning to work on now too!
That Emma and I get to head back to the Midwest again this October. I get so homesick in the fall because I have so many amazing family memories of pumpkin picking, visiting my sisters at college and the changing leaves.
For the beautiful fall weather we have in Colorado….
