Fall is here. (Thursday)

Fall is really one of my favorite times of year. Today on my way to work, I saw a few trees with some yellow and orange leaves.  In Seattle, Fall means gloomy skies and rain. But as of right now, I am OK with that. Here are a few things I LOVE about fall:

                      As much as I complain and complain about the dark days here in Washington, I love them this time of year. I love the lighting that it gives. It makes everything feel calm. It is that perfect nap taking kind of day, where a good book and a cup of tea is all you need.

I love all things pumpkin, except I don't like pumpkin pie. I like the color of pumpkins. Odd, I know! I want to buy a ton of pumpkin scented candles and have them lit all day long. Pumpkin spice lattes are also delicious. I think Starbucks seasonal drinks are what makes it "feel" like a season.
 (My pumpkin colored purse!)

I start school next week. I am actual really excited about it. I love college, and really enjoy getting to take classes. (Thanks mom and dad for being so generous.) I am studying to be a high school English/Drama Teacher. I have probably changed my mind on what I want to do a million times, but I think this is it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being a hairstylist. But having a college degree means a lot to me. Besides, who says you can't have two careers?

The next few months are pretty exciting. I am small group leader at my church's youth group. It is so fun to be apart of something so meaningful. Work is busy this time of year. Full of people wanting to change their hair for the new season. My husband and I get to move out of our apartment in a few months, so apartment/house hunting will soon commence. I love change, and really feel like this is the time of year to do it! This was an extremely long post, goodness gracious. 

One last thing...
My husband bought me these flowers this week.  Not only are they beautiful, but they smell SO GOOD. The second I walk into my apartment I can smell them. It is wonderful.

I was also informed they were the most expensive bouquet at the store. What a lucky lady I am. Until next time....



  1. I fully support your purse (since i was there when you bought it) as well as your affection for pumpkin spice lattes since i make them all day long.
    although, you wouldn't believe how many people cannot accept the idea of a pumpkin spice latte "because it means summer is over"...

  2. Great post! I love the changing of the trees a LOT. Gotta get some good pictures this year.

    @Thomas- I had to laugh that people are told when summer is over by Starbucks.

  3. Yea, I think Starbucks holds a weird seasonal change power of some sort.


Comments are the best. Thanks for the love :).
