I love this quote and hope the same can be said of my life one day.
It was a fun weekend. My son came home from college, as did most of his friends, and we all attended the high school football game. It was so good to see them all, and to top it off, our team had a victory against our rival! On Saturday, my husband, daughter, and I went to the afternoon performance of Wicked, and later, our son and two friends met us at a restaurant for a delicious dinner. On Sunday, we had a late lunch/early dinner together before he left to go back to school. My daughter went back to her new apartment to get ready for her work week.
After a wonderful weekend with my family, I settled in with rain fast approaching. Candlelight, warm colors and textures in the dining room evoked a cozy, homey feeling of autumn.

The centerpiece consisted of magnolia leaves and nandina leaves, with mini pumpkins, grapes, and gourds tucked inside. Two pillar candles were placed on top.
