I took a Tuesday off, which sounds weird but wasn’t. The break was necessary and I got so much done. Voted! Cooked! Laundry!

This bush was outside the laundromat and the colors were shockingly vivid. I kept circling it, taking picture after picture.


I have a habit of looking up. Inside and outside, I’m always with my head tilted back.

On my way to work, I walked under this tree and it felt like the sky lit up around me. It was glowing. It was a moment where the air was crisp, the sun was beating, and my world was on fire.


I’ve been visiting the Assembly area a lot. It’s near my work, the river, the train, and there’s shopping. What more could I possibly want?

Now that it’s getting darker earlier, I’m able to enjoy the lights they have strung up. There lit year-round, but I always seem to miss them when visiting Assembly.

Blue Sky

I don’t remember why, but I looked up and saw this perfectly transitioning tree with the blue sky backing it and feel in love with the image.

These shockingly clear blue skies, cloudless, are a favorite of mine.


Discovered the best snack. It’s not even “Oh it’s low cal” or “Sooo healthy” (though that’s part of it, sure). It’s tastes good.

And guilt free! A raspberry and blackberry mix is filling when I hit that late evening snack craving.


I am obsessed with my neighbors’ roses. There’s yellows and red in pots in their front lawn. They’re still in the process of landscaping. Every morning this week I’ve walked by the roses on my way to work and every morning I’ve stopped to smell them.

Roses have never been a huge obsession of mine, but I think I’m understanding why so many people love them.


The leaves are falling! And we’re getting a decent amount of rain, which I hear helps with the colors.

The house on the corner doesn’t rake, fine by me. So every day to and from work I look at the amazing colors on their lawn. I doubled back for this picture because I thought the rain drops looked so neat.


She is the clingiest thing! It’s nice to be loved, in moderation. I can’t go anywhere in the house without her following me and begging for attention.

For awhile, she even sat on the chair next to me, her little paw reaching out and hooked into my pants.


Some really intense red leaves all over the brand new sidewalk on my street. Wind was a bit much lately so the first one I went to take a photo of blew away.

But then the next day I found one just as pretty.


Fantastic view out the plane window! It felt like seeing more of the world than I’ve ever seen before.

The clouds were stunning. It had been cloudy before lift off so flying above them and seeing the sun made it hard to look away.


Coupon for Sephora! Tried something new with a Saturday Skin eye cream. I don’t know how well it works, but it sure looks pretty on my shelves.

Half the fun is being able to look at it next to my Anthropologie cups. Everything matches perfectly!

State Fair

For the first time in nine years, I was able to go to the Minnesota State Fair. Today was opening day. We headed toward a Park and Ride at the Mall of America transit station.

The Fair was packed, to no ones surprise. Tomorrow it’s supposed to rain by today was 80, sunny, and breezy.

I had Australian potatoes and we bought popcorn and roasted chestnuts. We also took a sky ride! Some amazing views.
