~Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree.~

And just like that, it is Fall…It just kinda seemed to swoop right in, and land it’s pretty little self right smack dab in the middle of Seattle. In one quick day, the winds changed, the light shifted, and suddenly, I found myself layering that extra quilt on the bed, closing my windows, and grabbing a scarf before heading out the door. And since it’s a new season, I decided to get a new look for Sun-soaked laundry! A new and improved, easy navigation, modern look for my sweetie-pie site, which boasts two whole followers, (hi Mom and Dad!). I so hope you like it… It’s so fancy!

Since summer was so short here in the Pacific Northwest, I decided to get one more summer kick and head to the Washington State Fair with my sweet friend Kerri and her family. This was our second annual trip to the fair, and once we have checked that off our list, we officially throw our hands up, and say, “Okay, Fall, you may now make your entrance.”

~Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumns.~

We put our dirtiest boots on, grabbed some coffee, and were OFF…headed out of the city, straight into the country and spent the whole day petting all the animalst we could make our way to: cows, horses, goats, sheep, chickens, pigs…you name it, we pet it. We treated ourselves to the yummiest fair scones that ever were made, rode the most rickety wooden rollercoaster you ever did see, bought some chocolate fudge, and giggled like school girls all through the fair grounds. Sometimes, you’ve just got to let yourself be a kid again.
