The days are getting cooler, the leaves are changing and the boys are no longer refusing to put on a sweatshirt when they go out to play with friends... Up here in the northern midwest, it's fall! Inspired by the arrival of my monthly Martha and Country Living, I spruced up our porch in celebration of the season this morning.

An errand took me by
Tangletown Gardens, one of my very favorite places and I scored 4 really unique, gorgeous pumpkins for only $20! I also picked up some branches to add to our planters. I figure that they'll last all winter (will change it up by adding some pine boughs when it gets too cold for the plants to survive) and thus were a good investment. At least that's how I'll sell it to my husband...

Here the dogs check and see what I am doing as well as attempt to keep the front yard free of squirrels by barking loudly. Note the hole that Wade created in our front screen - with 2 boys and 2 dogs, I have learned to embrace imperfection.

Nice! Just enough and not too much.
