It's official, my baby is 3 years old. My little princess had a wonderful birthday. We had a party on Sunday, a day filled with family, friends, good food, cake, candles and presents! Big smiles and fun times. That is what life is all about!
It is fair time here! The Walworth County Fair started today and we are planning on taking Lily to the fair tomorrow to ride on some rides, see all the farm animals and eat the wonderful fair food. None of which I can eat! I will be packing a protein bar and some water in my purse. We are looking forward to the day out. In the almost 46 years I have been on earth, I don't think I have ever missed the county fair.
To me the Fair officially starts the Fall Season. Soon there will be trips to the apple orchard and apple pies baking in the oven, Halloween costumes to think about and pumpkins to carve. Time seems to be going by so quickly. Much quicker now that I am older! The weather has already turned colder and soon the leaves will be changing. It is my favorite time of the year.
Autumn reminds me of my Mom & Dad, who I so dearly miss.......my dad was a teacher and at this time of the year he was busy getting back to school and all the extra curricular school activities he was involved in. My Mom would bake the world's best apple pies that would be waiting when we would return home from school.
I was blessed to have such wonderful loving parents. I go through my days trying to be the best parent I can be to my kids. I only hope to be half as good as they were. They were only with me for a short time, but, I was truly blessed!
For those of you who still have your parents...my message today is to thank them. Thank them for always being there, for teaching you, and most of all for loving you unconditionally. Tell them how much you love them. You never know when it will be too late to tell them how much you appreciate them. I miss you Mom and Dad, you live on forever in my heart and thoughts.
