As you can see we are in full fall mode over here. We did some decorating both outside and inside (see here for some ideas) and I love how festive and seasonal it feels at The Cozy Ranch. I can’t get over this pampas wreath from Kim, it’s so pretty. We are also full steam ahead with the renovation project. Craig ripped of the siding this week and is installing the new windows for the master bedroom and reshingling the outside. The nursery is almost done, crib arrived this week, just need to put it together and we’re waiting on a chair to arrive. No shortage of things to do around here. Wishing all of you a great weekend.

Calling all moms: I am working on a blog post about maternity leave experiences around the world. If you’re interested in sharing your story and perspective, please email me here with your name, location and age.

How you felt about the time off (if it was enough, if you took off more or went back sooner), how you balanced going back to work or if you decided not to go back. Any other details you want to share. (J)
