Fall is clearly here.

I went for a walk this morning to retrieve bagels for my co-workers. I LOVE walking in the wind. It smelled like fall outside and felt fresh and just a little chilly. I was happy to be holding a warm cup of coffee.

I love this illustration. Doesn't she look quite cozy?

A Giveaway for Fall

Guess what? In exactly one week, fall officially begins.

This means I will stop feeling guilty for staying inside with my yarn and drooling over pumpkin flavored things. Who doesn't love pumpkin? (Anyone claiming not to would positively swoon over my families pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. So just accept everyone likes pumpkin, okay?)

And not only does fall mean pumpkin flavored everything. It means pumpkin colored everything... including leaves!!

So in honor of the change in season I am hosting a giveaway featuring the work of the fabulous Christine of dela chic.

Here is what she is giving away:

Check out this AMAZING chocolate brown ear flap hat with lovely leaves. The stitches are immaculate and its so soft and comfy. It is gorgeous. And for this lovely give away I am contributing a coordinating coffee cup cozy!

What I will miss about summer...

I live in the fantastic city of Portland, Or.  There is a lovely park just a short walk from my apartment and I have been there a few times in the last few weeks to eat lunch in the coolness of the shade under the trees. My friend Chelsea took some lovely photos and posted about our trip here.

Chelsea also taught me about eating radishes with butter and salt... mmmmm.

Last week my friend Eva and I went with a mason jar of wine and sandwiches made with veggies and fresh, just made in my kitchen pesto!


We walked past lovely houses with fantastically unique and pretty yards....
These roses were beautiful AND smelled amazing!

And this drawing on the sidewalk articulated exactly how I felt about the day!

Photos by me unless other wise noted.
