Pushing for Fall

The first day of fall was 97 degrees and sweaty, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a visit to the Arboretum with my parents. We got to see the Chihuly, still super cool looking, and some great fall decorations. I think the glass sculptures are a great addition to the flowers and plants at the Arboretum. They did great with the installations.
There were hundreds of pumpkins. They were lining pathways, in trees, and even creating the walls of small houses. It was intense pumpkin love in Dallas. I’m just itching for fall to get underway for the love of cool weather, crisp smells, and soup. I just wish Mother Nature would get the memo. I’m doing my part, though. The house is being decorated for Halloween and fall. Nick and I bought two gallons of the best apple cider ever (the only ingredient is apples), and I’m planning on figuring out a way to make pumpkin frozen yogurt! Seriously though, that apple cider, it is intense and delicious.

Shinies

Yesterday, Nick and I went to the Dallas Arboretum with family and saw beautiful flowers, fantastic sculptures by Chihuly, and enjoyed surprisingly pleasant weather.

Here are some of the things we got to enjoy!

I love glass art. I got to sit in on a glass blowing class while in college. I have the upmost respect for anyone who works with glass as a medium. It is amazingly difficult looking, but so unique and georgous.

I love the tall yellow one.

The flowers were of course, bright and colorful and great. It was an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday in Texas before the true heat rolls in.
