Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 84
It’s finally cold outside. The Bay Area heat wave is gone. What is the weather like where you are?
Well, whatever climate you’re experiencing, we are all starting to prepare for autumn.
To help those who need it and to inspire those who need inspiring, here are some ideas relating to all things fall.
It’s time to fill our homes with fragrances of cinnamon and pumpkin while decorating our favorite spaces with autumn colors.
Again, cheers to September and happy decorating!
Personal Note from Janine
Good morning friends,
So, this week has been a blur for me.
My husband’s father passed away on Tuesday, and it’s a sad time for our family. He was steadily declining, so we’ve had time to process him slipping away.
But, you’re never ready to say goodbye to loved ones.
We will be heading to Vermont soon to support my mother-in-law and say our final goodbye to Richard.
The foliage will be beautiful, so hopefully, we can celebrate his life among the beauty that will surround our family.
Thanks for all your support and beautiful words of encouragement during these difficult times.
Give your family members a hug and cherish every moment you have with them.
Take care, everyone.
