Welcoming Autumn in Our Backyard Fort!
Did you guys all do a happy dance on Saturday?? I know you did if you knew which day it was!
The first day of autumn!
My favorite time of the year. In mid-July I start to imagine the smell of the crisp morning air, the sound of crunching leaves and the taste of a salted caramel mocha. Mmm. It's the most cozy and wonderful thing in the world. It's torture to wait so long for it! So Paige and I decided to celebrate with an outside picnic in a homemade fort. SO. Fun. I saw a photo of a cute couple in a fort on pinterest and I knew we had to try it. I tied rope between a tree and our beautiful chain length fence (don't be jealous) and hung old sheets and blankets. Then we brought out every cozy fall thing we could find, grabbed some fresh gluten-free, vegan bread and peach pie and a book or two and stretched out to enjoy ourselves.
And since a blogger doesn't do anything in life without heavy photographic documentation-I can share the details with you! Yay!
P.S. Thank you so much for all the votes so far in the Pins & Needles sewing contest I'm competing in!! It means a lot to me. It doesn't end until friday, so you can still check it out HERE and vote for your favorite for several more days. Thanks! :o)
