A few weeks ago I surprised the boys with a trip to the zoo after school. Soccer season had come to an end and we finally had a free week day. The sun was shining and the air was crisp, a perfect fall day in my book. Now it appears the fall to winter weather has kicked in and it is chilly and wet outside, making it ideal weather for hibernating at home. And since we have four more weeks until our move to Korea there are plenty of things to take care of around the house.

A few weekend notes:

1. I received a hand written letter from my friend Sarah of Truly Smitten. I'm not sure when the last time I received (or wrote) a letter (not a quick card). It is a wonderful reminder that taking the time to write a thoughtful letter to a friend is a beautiful gift.

2. I love the Bon Journey bags from The New Domestic (via Poppytalk). 

3. These beautiful (and mouth watering) images by the talented Karen Mordechai for the Desserts from the Famous Loveless Cafe cookbook are amazing. Since I am a big fan of Southern food and desserts (pies, cakes, cobblers) these perfectly styled photographs are right up my alley.

What a lovely shot! The colors of the leaves just created the happy ambiance of the photograph.

Girls love fashion and they also follow the fashion trends in the celebrities. They desire the replica gucci hobo bags your celebs carry. Well celebrities tend not to pay for your replica gucci 2011 handbags they hold. The fashion makers present the handbags for many years. They know while women see a common star carrying a new replica gucci 2010 handbag they should buy them. These fans cannot spend the money for prices of those people replica designer handbags. Therefore, the option left for the children is to identify a fake handbag.
