Kid’s Mini Library: Fall Edition

Fall is here and our mini library is all ready to celebrate the autumn season!

Oh how I LOVE fall! The crisp chill to the air, gorgeous array of leaves, and abundance of fun fall activities like trips to the pumpkin patch that make this time of year so fun! My little wildflowers absolutely love to take nature walks during this time of year. We examine all of the neat fall leaves strewn along the ground, gather acorns they find along the trail, and listen to the howl of the wind rustling through the trees. We’ve updated our little “mini library” shelves in our kids’ room for autumn and set up all of our fall themed books that we love to read this time of year. A few of them my kids just love to read over and over, and it makes my heart so happy when a sweet little one runs up to me with a book and yells “Read it, Mama!” The love of reading is such a treasure, I am thrilled that I’ve been able to pass it down to my kids! 🙂 Here is our fall selection of books we have on our shelves and are enjoying on these brisk autumn afternoons:

What I’m Loving

My Sweet Little Wildflowers

The sun has been shining bright and bringing the last of the summer heat, but a familiar breeze has appeared. We are still enjoying our fun in the sun with pool days, playground trips, and a visit to the aquarium this week, but we are also totally excited to get ready for fall! We’ve enjoyed some fall treats and started picking out new autumn decor for our home, and I am ready to bundle up in a cozy sweater once the weather starts to get blustery. And speaking of some cooler weather, I have a few things I’m loving this week that will start to bring some fall fun into your home too. 🙂

What I’m Loving

It’s been a great week spending time with my family in California. I absolutely love watching my two little ones splashing around in the pool, digging sand castles at Laguna Beach, and cuddling up to their grandparents after a day of fun in the sun. It was a long road trip from Oklahoma, but when I see these moments, it makes the whole crazy drive worth it. And speaking of the roadtrip… The first thing that I’m loving right now was found along our drive across America:

What I’m Loving

Coffee. Coffee has been my life lately! My two little ones aren’t sleeping very well lately, and between being up all night, packing for our long road trip, and the daily life at home, I’ve been needing much more of my caffeine fix. And honestly, that’s just fine by me because I absolutely LOVE coffee! I usually use my drip coffee pot and my Nespresso, but I decided to dust off my Italian stovetop moka pot to have some extra fun with my coffee time. And speaking of my Italian espresso maker, that brings me to the first thing I’m loving this week:

Kid’s Mini Library: Summer Edition

Our little library all ready for summer!

My little wildflowers absolutely love to read and I’m so thankful because I’m a total book nerd! I’ve read to them since they were babies and always have books on hand for them to pick up and ponder with anytime they please. We all love going to our local library and perusing through the shelves filled with amusing stories waiting to be enjoyed. I thought it’d be fun to make a “mini library” at home with a few simple shelves that we could stock with books that we can change with the seasons and holidays. Here is our summer selection of books we have on our shelves and are enjoying on these hot summer days:
