its tuesday evening. a breezy, fall one at that. i'm drinking my first ever iced coffee. the roasterie windows are open. sigh. fall is my favorite. for so many reasons. mainly because i slow down. i open my eyes and realize how blessed i am. this usually leads to me finding a million "new" favorite things. maybe they aren't that new after all? maybe they are, but none the less. i get really excited about them.
. like goat cheese. pretty sure that the way to my heart is through goat cheese.
. and wine.
. her too. glory be. like pirouettes drifting...
. and twinkle lights. best invention ever! especially when they're hung outside.
. over a big table.
. and eating by candlelight when the transformer blows and the twinkle lights go out.
. and getting woken up by little boy whispers. and karate chops. and french phrases.
. running in the coolness, but still warm enough to wear a tank top and get tan.
. baking. and lots of it.
. while wearing a vintage apron. in the last 2 weeks, i've baked 4 apple pies, one batch of pumpkin cookies, and a loaf of banana bread. my house smells heavenly.
. reading. all.day.long.
. this book. amazing. probably my favorite read this year. go buy it immediately!!
. my favorite reading chair (i have a reading chair!!!) that used to belong to a dear friend.
. open windows.
. while its raining.
. my pajama pants. that actually aren't even mine. i don't own any pajama pants. weird. i know. which makes me love them more. a dear friend let me borrow them when i stayed at her house, and i literally run home and change into them. there is just something so great. so perfect about them. so peaceful and restful. i know sometime i'm going to have to give them back. sigh.
but until then... ;)
