Sometimes I wonder if I love fall so much because it's the visual embodiment of all the things that, psychologically, I should be doing a better job of maintaining. Every year, nature takes stock and detoxes, shedding its skin in the loveliest, most wondrous of ways. It's a lesson to be learned, and certainly one [...]
Look. That lovely, crisp, autumnal breeze in the atmosphere? It's wonderful. And also very, very dangerous. This morning, as I trudged into work and settled myself at my desk, I noticed something as I was typing away on my keyboard. Something that took my breath away. My knuckles were ashy. Like gray. The abject horror [...]
After three weeks of rain, this weekend welcomed that sky and that glow below. Photos taken by yours truly from her couch, as she takes in the lovely, dry day. Happy Sunday.

When I was younger, it was definitely a secret admiration. But now? We're soul sisters. Miss Veruca [...]
Guess which two announced this chilly autumn morning that they're having a baby? I'll wait. Yes: Megs and Harry are pregnant!
