Autumn Leaves

It was a very full and hectic first week of October. My sister and nephew came to visit last weekend. It was so wonderful to spend time with them. I see my nephew only a few times a year and each time, I am so amazed at how much bigger and smarter he gets. There was this one afternoon when he and my nieces were playing in my mom's backyard; and as I watched him walking towards me holding a balloon I was instantly transported to a time many years ago when my son was that little. I cannot believe he is now nineteen and out of the house. I miss him every single day. I always get so excited when he calls or when I receive a text message from him. I hope he calls more often. Then again I remember being that young and the last person I wanted to talk to was my mother. I always had an excuse such as school and work or that I was too busy hanging out with people whose names I don't even remember anymore. Lucky for me, my mom is still here. I hope my son knows this...that I will always be here for him.

My goodness, this year completely passed me by. Can you believe it will be Christmas in like two months! Oh well, I want to share this really simple and easy Autumn Leaves card. I love fall. I really do. I had an amazing Stamping Event yesterday. I get so inspired when the gals like the projects I prepare for them. We've been making Christmas cards, so I will be sharing them with you soon. It really depends on my photographer (daughter) who's always attached to her bed on weekends.
