Happy first day of fall. I am here for it feeling full of gratitude for the change of seasons and the incredible weather that we are being spoiled with. I have been sitting outside working for three hours and I plan to eat dinner outside tonight too.
It’s 70 degrees and 46% humidity the sky is Carolina blue. I’m feeling especially happy about this weather stuff because last year on September 30 it was 98 degrees in Charlotte. I remember going explore Optimist Hall with Finn on a Friday afternoon because I was trying to find an indoor activity because it was so crazy hot. Now, that’s not to say that it couldn’t be back in the 90s in the blink of an eye…because that’s how we roll in the south…but let’s hope those days are behind us!
We’ve had mornings in the 40s for the last few days so Finn has been rocking his fall apparel. Related, he desperately needed a new pair of shoes and picked out these little Sperry’s 100% on his own. 🙂 If you’re local to Charlotte, we love Kixx.
Finn is holding a chocolate chip cookie in that photo. We baked chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin apple bread on Sunday.
I enjoyed my first 55 degree, low-humidity run of the season on Monday morning and it felt incredible. It always blows my mind how much easier running feels in lower humidity. I ran about 3.5 miles at a pace I hadn’t seen in ages! Also, it’s funny to see how runners dress so differently when the weather starts to change. I was out there in shorts and a tank and passed another runner in tights, long sleeves and gloves! I actually walked out in a long-sleeved shirt and reminded myself of the whole “dress like it’s 20 degrees warmer” thing and decided to leave it at home. I’m glad I did.
The dogs have been loving the cooler weather too, especially Zoey! She’s been doing a lot of sunbathing.
We spent so much time outside last weekend. There is a great playground within easy walking distance of the new house and Finn loves it. He’s doing so much more climbing these days which is fun to watch.
And that’s all I have for you on this first day of fall. Just wanted to say hi and check in with some photos of the crew.
Do you tend to over or under dress when you run?
Are you happy to see fall or sad to say goodbye to summer?
