Fall brings people together. Weston and I got…pumpkins today, as we do every year.
I love festive traditions and really love seeing all the funny shaped gourds, it’s my favorite part. I have amazement that never ceases when it comes to gourds. When I discover a new variety I automatically squeal (or exclaim “OHMYGOSH,”) I stare (ponder it for a few seconds,) then lift my gaze. The cycle repeats over and over; discover, squeal, ponder, lift gaze…discover, squeal, ponder, lift gaze. They’re just gourds… I’m aware, but I can’t help it. Their uniqueness makes my heart flutter.
If you pumpkin shop with me it may seem like you’re out with a little kid. By now, Weston knows how much I love this event and humors me like a true champ. We plan to carve pumpkins at my Grammy’s house this Friday. Printable pumpkin carving patterns rule. They make the best jack-o-lanterns. Stay tuned early next week for the final products.
So you know how “thrifty” I am? I’m a girl who finagles over mere quarters at rummage sales. I’m a squirrelish girl who smells used Tupperware before buying it. Can someone please tell me why I don’t bat an eye when I purchase disposable holiday decorations? Because sometimes I can’t justify myself.
