I’ve basically been ready for fall since early August.
(I put up a really heavy post this weekend, so I thought it was appropriate to put up a photo post. Enjoy?)
This Vanilla Chai candle from Bath and Body Works is making me rethink my sworn allegiance to Yankee Candles. I’m a purist, and I find that Yankee just has better, truer scents (Balsam Pine, True Rose, Lavender Vanilla: they do it all really well). But this is warm and spicy and sweet. I see you, Bath and Body Works. I see you. (Especially with their fall candle 2 for $22 deal.)
Lattes and NPR are fall morning essentials. (My favorite show is Morning Edition. What’s yours?)
I documented the first day of scarf weather with a selfie. Judge me?
And then, last night, I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Dr. Jane Goodall speak. She’s an inspirational woman, not only for her accomplishments, which are many and diverse, but for her genuine gratitude to those who helped her along the way. I look up to her for what’s she’s done, but also for what she’s continuing to do. She certainly gave me a lot to think about, especially vegetarianism.
Originally the title of this post referred to the agonized wait for the leaves to change color here in Missouri. In my opinion, it takes for freakin’ ever. But, after Dr. Goodall’s talk, I feel like it refers to a lot more than just leaves changing.
I hope you have a good week!
