Welcome, October!


I <3 the feel of progress. Fall chill in the air. inspiration. not having to "pull teeth" to find words.

I <3 the sound of laughter. Handel's Messiah. stillness.

I <3 the smell of coq au vin. clean sheets.

I <3 the taste of perfect pears. sweet milky tea.

I <3 the sight of old friends, even if they are just in pictures. plaid. cloudy days.

making happy memories

A picnic

at the lake

with my sister

is the perfect way to spend a beautiful Autumn afternoon.

Thanks, e! <3

finally... pique your interest!

pinterest party button

If Pinterest were asking for users' wishlists, this would be at the top of mine: the ability to search just your own pins; by keywords, or by date pinned, or by length of time (i.e., pinned this week or this month). With that said, I have wanted to join the Pinterest linky party going on here since it started... and have finally succeeded!

Favorite pins this week celebrating fall:
Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts with Maple Glaze

Looking forward to weather like this!

Pumpkin Praline Trifle

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

and for motivation to burn off those yummy fall-ish, comfort food calories:

Happy Thursday! and thanks for stopping by.

short and sweet

Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?

Hehe... I discovered community in the most unlikely of places this year: the gym! And I am loving it!

To connect with more deeply in 2011? To do a better job of keeping up with my far-flung HQ and IBLP friends. To jump in to church here, and sing in the choir.
