“…All At Once, Summer Collapsed Into Fall”

Don’t you just love that quote by Oscar Wilde? It never fails to make me feel cozy. Seriously though, this year fall seemed to come in with October, and we have had a nip in the air and yellow leaves ever since. I love fall with all of my cozy heart, and my sister and…

Weekend Adventurers

My best friend in the whole entire world is finally home. She was gone for a long time. I missed her. But now that she’s finally home and back in our beautiful tiny cabin, it has created a rather conflicting dilemma for me. A ‘I really want to hang out with you but I work…

Sending Off An Adventurer

My sister left this week. One of my sisters. I have a few. This particular sister is nineteen. I’ve mentioned her before. She has been living with me for the last several months, but she is off now. Off adventuring. I drove her to the airport on Tuesday. We talked about boys the whole drive….
