A couple of things dawned on me yesterday. The first, I’m ready for fall. Bring on the layers, muted colors, No. 2 pencils (I still buy them for fun each September), crisp autumn temperatures, black basics, boots and more. I’ve already started inching my way towards fall-like ensembles and looking forward to the end of the day when the air seems to cool off drastically. The second thing I realized, the beginning of fall means I’m that much closer to meeting our little one. Every time my mind goes down that path I get a tidal wave of emotions—excitement, nervousness and slight panic over all the things we need to do. This week we’re starting to put together the nursery and I can’t wait to feel semi-prepared now that I’m in my third trimester.
