~Autumn has officially descended upon us! Tis the season for cooler weather, leaves changing, sweaters & boots, Halloween, apple picking and pumpkin flavored everything. And my birthday is on the first day of fall, also referred to as the Autumnal Equinox.
My birthday gifts I received this year had a subtle fall theme to it. A birthday card my mom gave me had an adorable French Bulldog puppy emerging from a Jack-O-Lantern surrounded by falling leaves. And my cousin gifted me a Vera Bradley purse with a surprise inside: 2 miniature pumpkins and a gourd. There was also a gift card to a grocery store called Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market (which I’ll blog about later).
She found these gourds at the Fresh Thyme market and thought of me and my blog and said that I should blog about the market. That was so sweet 🙂
And this past Saturday I went to the Downers Grove market, one of a few markets still open, and there were gourds everywhere!! Big ones, small ones, short ones, tall ones!
Gourd have mercy!
