I’m continuing my daily walks (though I may skip one day a week on occasion) and am loving the turn of the season right now. Since I am also busy piling up my ornament production, I will leave you with images rather than words. Enjoy!

Fall is making its entrance, and the warm weather has people predicting that the leaves wonâ€™t stay on trees very long. Recently I basked in the glorious sunshine that cast a special vibrant glow on the trees. I love the three-toned trees this time of year. I am surprised to still see butterflies fluttering and […]
It is Fall! I love the beautiful jewel tones of the season. Summer is still holding on here and there. We had a few chilly days that got the radiators going. But now we have warmer weather to where strolls in the park are enjoyable again. Soon there will be piles to toss around. The […]

On the heels of 2 openings and an intense week prior, I decided to go off on a little cabin retreat. My home is a disaster area from the flurry of creating and continuous appointments, and I had no energy to clean, but I also couldnâ€™t think or process amid all the clutter. So the […]
We’ve had some glorious days, but the season is definitely changing. I’m bummed the butterflies were so sparse this year compared to the last 2 summers, but hopefully I will see more than sulphurs and cabbage whites next year. The flowers are embracing their last bloom. Daylight is leaving us sooner. It will be nice […]
