multitude monday ~ pumpkins, squash & gourds...oh my!

the pumpkins were HUGE and so beautiful
Last week I took my girl and a few of her favorite friends to the local farm stand to check out the bounty of the harvest. The colors were just spectacular. The mums, cabbage flowers, gourds, squash and pumpkins were in abundance. It was a lovely little diversion for my city girl. She was so happy being outside feeling the wind on her face, smelling the apples and listening to her mother be excited over every texture and tactile experience.

court wasn't sure what to do with the gourd that was shaped like a snake.
I love her facial expression. She gave a hearty yell to go with it.
It was such a lovely little diversion in our day. While there I picked up some yummy apple and pumpkin butter. I can't wait to give them a try on some lovely whole grain toast served with a hot cup of tea. We are blessed with so many unique local food artisans here in No VA. The apple cider was so crisp and fresh. 
so many different types of squash...amazing.
 I am grateful for:
#55 - an abundant harvest

#56 - a soft giggle as the wind caresses my girls face 

#57 - the colors of fall

#58 - the elegance of Courtney's hands as she explores the harvest bounty

#59 - a school that allows my daughter to seek her full potential 

smiling with the different texture of the gourds
#60 - pink windbreakers with hoods, curls and a smile that takes your breath away!
