As summer comes to an end, I can’t help but reflect on how tumultuous the past few months have been. We’ve had a back injury, a broken toe, multiple colds, and someone most dear to us is going through chemotherapy. Despite all of the above, we also had a lot of fun. Logan had his first birthday and went to the beach for the first time, visit from close friends, and my husband surprised me with tickets to see Beyonce and Jay Z. Through it all, I am very thankful and continue to pray for good news for one of the sweetest and kindest people I know. I am looking forward to a hopefully uneventful fall season with my family and friends.

Having lived half of my life in both Nigeria and Atlanta, I didn’t really appreciate fall weather until I moved to the midwest. I love the crisp, cool weather, and it is so nice to see foliage change to different shades of yellow, red, orange and brown. There is something tragic yet beautiful as we witness trees shed their leaves and remain in a stagnate state, patiently waiting for the chance to bloom once again. Until then, we will enjoy our warm cider, pumpkin-spiced lattes, everything autumn has to offer and of course, fall fashion.

Thanks for reading!
