Fall. Half-naked trees emerging forth from pools of orange and red. Scarves. Candle flames aiding the aromas of cinnamon apples and wild currant. Jack-o-Lanterns. Hot spiced cider.
Rich, frothy maple lattes. Feelings of something new. Something exciting. Birthdays, laughter. Scarves, tights and hats. Warm hearts and homes. Gatherings around a table. Spiced tea and pumpkin flavored pastries. Chilled noses, dry lips and hands. Squash soups. Socks. Layers.
The anticipation of celebration. The anticipation of white.

Looks Awesome! That is how Coeur d'Alene is starting to look. Our red tree is starting to drop all its leaves too! Our family has tickets to next weeks Idaho Boise State game and will get to see it for ourselves.

GREAT to hear back from you!!! Good games in that area next weekend. You guys probably saw the BCS standings...Oregon #14 & Boise State #15. These games could mean some movement for both teams. We would love to see ya and meet the fam. Our game starts at 2pm. Let me know when your game starts. Maybe we'll leave a bit earlier or something.
