October Giveaway: Getting In The Mood (For Fall!)

My sisters didn't have school today, so we all decided to head over to our local park and get some fresh air. Miles is such an adventurous spirit- he wants to be on the move, looking and pointing and babbling along the way. I love seeing his personality shine through more and more as each month passes, and wearing Miles as we walked under beautiful trees and near squirrels was a delight because I can see how much he enjoyed exploring the park snuggled up close to me. I couldn't be happier that he's a mama's boy. Here are some photos of our day:

Sunnies: Chanel
Sweater: The Limited
Jeans: Paige Denim
Shoes: Sven clogs

I am in love with fall, people- the fall crispness that I've begun to feel in the air the last few days is nothing short of magical, as far as I'm concerned. Even though I live on the beautiful Pacific coast with all its bright sunny days, I thrive on overcast days, rain, and fog. This is the time of the year I feel most comfortable and full of anticipation for some of my favorite days between now and the start of spring: my birthday, the holidays, Miles's birthday, and our wedding anniversary.

Maybe you're a summery soul, or maybe you're just in love with fall as I am. Either way, this month's giveaway is an assortment of treats (no tricks here!) to get you in the mood for fall. My lovely sponsors are getting in on the festivities as well- take a look at what we've got going on this month!

Such an adorable little baby. You can really see the excitement in his eyes. I'm amazed that you can take care of baby while wearing those cute shoes. Seeing your pics has inspired me - I need to stop wearing flats everywhere!

@Judy: I promise it's a lot easier than you'd think! I'm not wearing stilettos or anything- you can bet I'd have a Miss Congeniality moment!

@Dawnelle: It's from Baby Gap! His whole little outfit is from there. They have such great things for baby boys, and of course I'm a sucker for any sort of cute hat!
