Finally Fall

I'm of the firm opinion you just can't have too many basics, especially come cold weather, and since it seems that fall has finally made it's appearance in the northeast, it's high time to bust them out. Cozy warm sweaters, utility jackets and piles and piles of plaid shirts - Please and thank you.

The northeast seems to be stuck in this strange in-between season. Not quite summer and not quite fall. Some mornings are crisp enough to lure you into a false sense of autumn. I get up, throw on sweaters and jeans and then by lunch its over eighty degrees and I am sweating from head to toe. So I've resorted to wearing some sort of strange combo of summer and fall - lightweight sweaters paired back to shorts or mini skirts. Let's just say - I'm still freezing half the day and sweating the other half *major eye roll*

Thankful

Thanksgiving Outfit

What would you do if you woke up and only had the things you were thankful for the day before? 

This past Sunday I visited my sister's church with her and the pastor asked that question, and it really hit me. I usually think of myself as pretty thankful person, and am usually conscious that I am fortunate in a lot of ways, but if I stop and image myself only having what I've taken time to be specifically thankful for, well, I wouldn't have much. It may be cheesy and cliche this time of year to talk about being thankful, but I do think it's an important tradition. Things get crazy, and it's easy for even good things to feel like burdens sometimes, but maybe if we stop to take the time to be thankful for them, even when they do feel heavy, it will make them feel just a little bit lighter.

I'm especially thankful for puppies, even when they insist on being in all of your photos.
