When Life Hands You Lemons...

...Rejoice!!  That's right, we have a little lemon in our life now.  According to babycenter.com, at 14 weeks, our baby is the size of a lemon!!  Even though a lemon is small, that is an amazing thing for me to imagine.  A baby the size of a lemon is growing inside me!!  Wow.  Sometimes I find myself tearing up over the miracle of it all...

Ok, anyway, it is a gorgeous day here today.  It's very cool out, think 45-50 right now, but it's sunny and the leaves are falling all over the place.  Have I mentioned that I LOVE Fall??  I am going to take my camera with me today, while I'm out running errands, so I can take some pictures of this unbelievable landscape we have around us.  I find myself in the car, making noises that sound like groans, every time I see an amazing tree!  God gave me a critical eye for color and design and I marvel at the colors He creates!!  I also love to look at a group of trees and see the balance and shape of how they work together.  There is so much asymmetry in nature, that was always a principle we talked about in my interior design classes.  Of course I always made sure to credit the Lord as the great designer behind that balance, not "mother nature."  Anyway, I am very appreciative of this season and I hope to capture some of it in pictures!  

I hope you have a great Fall day today!!

My little one is like the size of a skyscraper :-) (he's 16 and very tall), but he is still my little one. I always feel that about him.
