Well, I am back. Two months gone by, not a post to be seen. The move went well; the transition from summer into fall is well underway. The leaves have been changing from luscious green to bright firey colors, to becoming more sparse.

The past couple of months have gone by like an absolute whirlwind; October especially has moved past in an instant. The weather has had me all discombobulated; one day it is 62°, the next it is near 80° and back again. Today it is more in the sixty degree range and blustery, which means windows thrown open wide for me. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the cooler temperatures allowing the layering of light sweaters and cozy jackets, the changing of the leaves, the flavors and smells of fall. Apples, pumpkins, squash, greens, beets; these are some of my favorite things to eat. As the days grow cooler, I find myself wanting to just sit in a comfortable chair with a warm cup of tea and a cozy blanket and a book. So I created my dream reading nook. I tried to stretch my creativity a bit by finding inspiration in traditional gentlemen’s clubs and reading rooms, so this board is a lot more traditional and masculine than what I typically gravitate towards. But I think it looks supremely comfortable and relaxing!
