Sometimes I think everyone needs to take a brief hiatus. 
A small breath in time to get re-inspired and to slow it down some.
I've been nesting, keeping warm, cooking and reading a lot so far this year. I always look at my old resolutions and begin crossing things off that I've accomplished but always keep tabs on what I want to continue working on. Life is like that, always a continuation of keeping yourself growing for the positive (small set backs are quite normal) but over all working on keeping your life moving forward...but balanced. It's definitely not easy but that is my main resolution for 2015: to keep growing not only in learning new things but to keep improving on the things I really enjoy, taking time to read and write more, cook, move and sweat, create and learn. Putting down my walls so that nothing can hold me back.
Happy (belated) New Year.

We went to Chadds Ford Winery and had a great time tasting different wines next to the big steel vats in the basement, sitting near the fire pits outside and snacking on sandwiches from the food trucks that were parked in the front circle. Weekends always go so fast.

A Wintery Thanksgiving

Friday, November 28, 2014

Thanksgiving Eve swirled in a wintery mix of sleet and snow but gave way to a bright Thanksgiving morning. Breath caught in wisps as soon as you exhaled into the crisp and frozen air, the dogs tumbling outside excited to stretch their sleep laden bodies.
It was all about giving gratitude and spending time with family while cranberry pies filled with sugar bubbled into confectionary goodness, those little tangy ruby orbs creating the perfect mix.

October flashed up in hues of crimson, turmeric and fired gold.
Clearly Autumn is my most favorite season, everything that goes with it from the smell of rotting earth to the way the sun cools into silvery wisps playing tag between tree branches.

November is half way through and I'm soaking in every second I'm able to enjoy the scenery.

Layering and adding up different textures is one of the best things about Fall. 
Handkerchief tops and cozy jersey blazers with a pop of red lipstick (and of course my favorite sneaks)... Comfort + fashion is a must.

Autumn sifted into our evenings in August this year. 
The nights dropped down to chilly temperatures forcing us to add extra layers to our already cozy bedding. 
Octobers hold such nostalgia for me. Fading evening light turns glassy, no more of that warm glow, everything just...cools. Pumpkin gets added to everything, knits and faux fur come in full horsepower and ciders make their way to our mugs.
Colors deepen and everything starts to smell of rot and earth.
