'Til Monday

Well, here it is:  summer's end.  A huge part of me doesn't want it to happen.  After almost three months of no schedules, warm days, and rambunctious kids (whom I thoroughly enjoyed), it's time to change gears.  I do look forward to what fall brings us:  cool crisp air, warm colored leaves and the need to come back into the home.  To Cocoon.  I enjoy preparing the house for the cooler days with additional pillows and throws on the couches, fluffier rugs on the floors and simmering soups on the stove.

With the children back at school and a more structured routine, I'll have more time to work on both home and business projects that were cast aside at summer' start and focus on some exciting new ideas for my blog.  For starters:  Cocoon will have its first reader giveaway next week!  Can't wait to share it with you.

So, until Monday, I'd love to hear what you're looking forward to this coming season and how you plan to Cocoon.
