falling: mood board

Source 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

perfection?  the warmth evoked by the chill in the air.  the smell of steaming coffee, wood set to flame, and the damp, yet crisp breeze.  the crunch of the leaves and the brilliance of their skin, just before losing grip of their branches.

yes.  i’d say it’s perfection.


it’s that time again …

the time where i kind of, sort of, start complaining about the weather.  6 months ago, i was so ready for summer … and now?  fall!  where is fall?!

my boots have a layer of dust so thick that i’ll be amazed if i can revive them to their natural, winter-friendly state.  and the scarves!  they are twisted in a bundle, needing to be freed from the warm depths of the closet.  oh, the tragedy! {please at least give me a smirk, as you recognize my over-dramatization of the current situation}

and to make this current forecast worse,


my office just got this in the mail:

that means, it’s Christmas time everyone!  rrrriiighhht?

i guess in reality, i can’t really complain about the impending forecast … i’ll take 80’s over the upper-90’s of last weekend, any day.  the good thing, is the line on the thermometer is dropping southward, right on towards Christmas, at a relatively steady pace.
