a fall friend

I snapped this happy little squirrel during our brief visit to Macalester this fall. I loved that campus the moment I stepped foot on it as an 18-year-old. It is so beautiful. I loved being back, even if it was a bit chilly that day.

Day 5: Looking up I love Canadian geese. I know many people find them to be annoying pests, but I find them absolutely charming. One of my most favorite posts is about geese. The other day, I was outside randomly taking pictures of things, and I heard a group of them fly overhead. I love … Continue reading

Day 12: Drink I must begin this post by saying that I don’t drink much pop. I get my daily caffeine from my lovely hazelnut coffee, and if I drink pop after about 2pm, I usually have trouble sleeping (I’m such an old lady). I drink 7-up when my stomach is upset, and wild cherry … Continue reading

Day 8: Something you do every day Lately, I’ve been lighting a candle every day. My current favorite is cinnamon. Or chai spice. Or apple cider. Or pumpkin. There’s something about fall that makes me want to light candles. Candles are so cozy.

Day 7: I’m thankful for I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m thankful for fall. Crunchy leaves underfoot, extra layers, and hot apple cider equals one happy girl.

the weekend recap

Day 24: Three things I spent the weekend in Nebraska. I went to the football game with my dad, ate delicious shishkabobs, and basked in the sun, drinking coffee with my mom. A pretty fantastic weekend, all told. The only thing missing was Mr. Phish, who really needs a job that does not involve working … Continue reading

thanks, man

Day 20: Manmade Thankful for this manmade wonder and equally in love with the pumpkin spice candle and the flame that makes it smell so wonderful. Hello, fall. I’ve missed you so.

summer is fading

Day 5: Bright There’s still plenty of heat left in the sunshine, but the days are getting a little bit shorter. Temps are supposed to get into the 70s this weekend–fingers crossed!
