A Change of Scenery + Ruffle Tops

Do you ever feel like you need a change of scenery? When Ever gets fussy in the late afternoon / evening, sometimes all it takes to turn that frown upside down is a simple change of geography.  The front yard might be just ten feet from our living room, but as she lays there on her gingham blanket and stares of at the tree limbs shaking their fall foliage, she looks like her whole world has been transformed.  I was thinking about this in amazement last week– how a simple change of scenery could change her mood in such a major way and …
