Autumn's Got My Heart

I seem to adore each approaching season more than the last. So after a seemingly long summer in SoCal, the coming of Fall is refreshing and rejuvenating. Some of my favorite seasonal delights are:

Warm holiday colors that God placed in nature,
like with these wild berries.

The occasional rain storm that envelopes everything in it.
One of my favorite things to do when it rains it to watch
the wetness on the windows. I love rain for its refreshment,
its hope for being washed clean and renewed.

Lace-up boots. Can't live without 'em.
They keep me cozy in all kinds of
unpredictable San Diego weather.

I love warming lights, but this is by far my favorite lamp.
Hannah and I love when it's dark out and we only have this lit.
It's golden glow fills our room with warmth.
Feels a bit more "homey" than florescent dorm light fixtures.

Holiday baking with my sister.
We made a batch of gingerbread cupcakes
with cream cheese frosting from scratch
The best was talking about our dream of opening
a little tea house and bakery someday.
The tiny gingerbread men decorations added some spunk.
