Hey frends. :)
I can’t believe it’s taken me sooooooo ridiculously long to get back into the blogging world. Life has been wonderfully/overwhelmingly chaotic. And we all know how I like procrastinating till my responsibilities devour me. Heh.
Summer 2018 was pretty darn amazing. <33 Spent time with fabulous people. Road tripped. Went to two conferences (both great, 10/10 would recommend). Took a lot of sky photos. Met new people. Canoed. Almost drowned while canoeing (still haven’t recovered, lolol). We watched fireworks + I discovered so many new songs to love + made a million library trips and found new favorite books.
It was a summer I’ll miss.
The novel has been coming along at a quicker pace now (for those of you who actually care)… I’m thinking about trying some very inexperienced actual plotting?? Ish. Just to get all my ideas together. Hahah. I’m very much a “planster”, so it’s a challenge. But I’m unmotivated and need structure in my life. :”’)
But. BUT. THE SEASON OF CRISPNESS AND COZY DRINKS IS UPON US.
I literally can’tttt describe my love for autumn. It has no words.
There are just so many SMELLS. The smells of freshness, colored trees, pumpkin spice, bonfires, and roasted marshmallows. The scarves and quilts that have been put up all year. Cinnamon and fallen leaves. The smell of apples.
Can a season be the best just because it has the best smells??
Last week the fam and I took a trip to NC + stayed the night + found our first pumpkin patch of the year. I’M NOT OVEREXCITED, YOU’RE OVEREXCITED.
look, he coordinates with the pumpkins
I’m dying from the beautifulness of all the pumpkins. Also the really sweet elderly dude who owned the patch gave us a bunch of free ones. They’re small and adorable and I just. Wow. Blessed.
Visited a chum who works at Starbucks the other week (rad human bean. she gave us a discount. friends in high places, muahaha) and got pumpkin spice lattes as well. The seasonal bucket list is underway. ;)
Very important question: what’s your fave thing about autumn?
I’m so glad to be back. Again.
P.S. My friends laugh at me for saying “autumn” instead of “fall” (if you’re reading this you know who you are). Apparently it’s a Brit thing… but I’ve grown up alwayssss saying autumn. Help me out here. Which one do you say?
