fall makes it better

It's fall. The leaves are starting to change colors and the air is FINALLY starting to feel a much less like liquid and a little more like.... freshness :)
I'm not a huge fan of what I call "the extreme seasons".  I would be thrilled with just a few weeks of summer and winter, which I actually really enjoy for a minute or two. But, I just cannot get enough of the fall and spring. They always pass too quickly and I am always dreading their end.  This year hasn't been any different. This summer was hot. There were something like 50 days that were "hotter than hades" kind of days and I was happy to see it end. Now the fall is upon us and all that comes with it. Pumpkins and Indian Corn and Apple Cider and Apple Sauce and Candy Apples and Fall Foliage.... I am in seasonal heaven!
Something about fall has made a time that is difficult more bearable. There are some things that are hard right now, not devastating or major. Life is just "LIFE" right now. Challenging and stretching, but beautiful, too. We are walking it together as a family and trying to keep our eyes focused on Jesus as we journey along.  We are believing Him like we always do, because He's never failed us, never left us. There is much to be thankful for, much to praise the Lord for, too! We have babies (nieces and/or nephews) coming (one from Ethiopia), we have an amazing family, we are healthy, and we are children of the Most High God! What more could we possibly need?
A few fall pictures...

Just a random fall day- isn't he looking like a big boy?!?!

i love this post..."life is just life right now" - that's where i am too. better to embrace it, right? all of your pics are so lovely! that fall table is so perfect and all of those shots from springon???seriously, perfection :)


We're the Wells family. We currently consist of Michael (husband and daddy), Lauren (wife and mama), Evangeline (daughter and princess), and Samuel (son and prince). We live a pretty simple life loving the many blessings that God grants us each and every day.
Mike is a genius carpenter/contractor and works throughout neighboring counties. Lauren stays at home with Eva and Sam most of the time, but works a few days a week as a therapist.
More than anything else, we love being together as a family- trips to the gardens, swimming at Grammie and Papa's house, and bike rides & walks are probably our most frequent activities. We're surrounded by our family (siblings and parents); they all live within 30 minutes of us!
That's us in a nut shell.
We're thankful you dropped by our site!
