The Breezy Sounds of Late Summer
A new playlist for you to listen to: It’s that feeling of impending autumn. Mellow and contemplative. A little windy. Cloudy. And yet not quite the end of summer.Read More: The Breezy Sounds of Late Summer
I was in the mood for something new to listen to in the car, and so last week Pumpkin Spice was born. Check out the playlist 🙂Read More: Pumpkin Spice
The wonder that is pumpkin bread
It’s September. School starts next week. Even though it’s still hitting the 90-degree mark during the days, the mornings and evenings are starting to have that pleasant cool-crispness about them. It’s the time of year a girl can’t help thinking about cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. If you feel that way, too, why don’t you hop […]Read More: The wonder that is pumpkin bread
Balls in the air, balls on the ground
There’s just been so much juggling recently. It’s easy to let a few things fall to the floor. For the first time in at least twelve years, I dropped the ball on my First Day of Fall tradition.

When we walk to the bus stop in the morning, there are not yet piles of dead leaves for us to trample with a satisfying […]Read More: Good Morning, Fall!
Fall officially arrives at 11:48 Monday morning. I was resisting the end of summer, but now that I’ve had a few weeks to get used to the idea, I’m really looking forward to the next season. It has always been my favorite, after all. Autumn is honeycrisp apples, pumpkin bread, and grabbing a sweater on […]Read More: Welcoming Autumn
You, who brings the pleasures of apple picking, brightly-colored zinnias, and the first day of school; you, whose crisp nights and energizing mornings are the things of “sweather weather;” you, whose arrival inspires thoughts of pumpkin lattes, fall napkins, and home-baked quickbreads… yes, that’s you, September. You and your explosion of color, your crunchy leaves […]Read More: Welcome, September
