WIWW – Cold Weather Edition


Today we are talking about the weather and how it’s related to fashion. Blame it on the forecasters, because they dared utter the word blizzard. In my world, blizzard is a four letter word that should be reserved for places like Alaska, the North Pole, and maybe even Canada.  (Sorry all you friends just to the North.) I got over the romance of the first

What I Did in 31 Days

Old house in field - Fall

October was weird for me. I blog day-to-day, about life and the stuff that is stuck in my head.  October was different.  I told stories everyday and wrote about one topic – Living by Faith. Since I tend to be a fly by the seat of my pants kind of blogger, I thought I would hate writing on a specific topic, but I surprised myself.

Hello Monday. Are you sure you only have 24 hours, because my to-do list is really, really long today.  I want to do it all, but we’ll see.  I would settle for a almost all. Hello Early Fall.

Turn, Turn, Turn… Fall came and she’s beautiful in all her colors.  The leaves are staying on the trees this year and they are turning the most beautiful shades of orange.  I wish I had pictures to show you,

Decorating for Fall – Put a Pumpkin on it!


There’s something about waking up to crisp air and a house that greets me with a heavy thirteen year old robe and fuzzy slippers that makes me want to clean.  It’s a phenomena I cannot explain.  Not even in spring do I feel this internal urge to throw everything out and scrub my house with bleach.  For me cleaning is a fall thing.  The other
