iHeart Fall.

Guess what...I got another flat tire!! Right after I got brand new ones put on. Yay! A nice man on his way home from work this morning helped me change it before my brother could even get there.

Moving on.

I love Fall.

I fully believe the seasons should be as follows:

Winter: December. Only December.
Spring: January to June
Summer: July. Just July.
Fall: August to November.

I've never done much fall decorating. In Utah I just looked up at the mountains and they were all sorts of yellow, orange, red, purple, and green looking so I never felt the need. I'm not sure how fall really looks here in Missouri. So far, it's mostly like dried corn stalks.

Anyway, I was wandering around Far West yesterday and picked up a handful of acorns. Mostly because they're cute, but then I thought I could paint them as part of a fall-type decoration. I perused and found some acorn love:
