Of all the seasons I’m most excited about parenting in, fall’s top on my list – filled to the brim with apple orchards and cozy weekends and winding hayrides. My favorite coffeehouse’s signature drink has returned and the outside world is settling back into a family routine after a long summer of adventure and exploration and discovery. It’s as if we all have permission to nest now – to curl up within our own four walls with a good novel and a weathered couch and hibernate for the season ahead. Fall is a transitional period – we’re brushing off the summer jitters and easing back into warmth and real and home.
The littles, of course, are making their own fun. With no vacation plans to distract or summer festivals to explore, they’re left to their own devices. (Although Bee isn’t yet staging a masquerade ball in our home like the video above, she is performing quite the costume experimentation on our dogs!) It’s precisely why I love this video from Marie-Chantal: a preview of their fall/winter collection, yes, but also a telling tale of a child’s quest for imagination. It’s everything I love about fall: countryside fields and wool socks, worn quilts and anticipatory giggles.
And most of all: the tiny ones we love.
