snapshots of sweetness.

     the breeze is finally cool here and i am loving it. and though it's not autumn yet, i am loving early fall happy things, like pumpkin spice scented candles, pre-season football, throwing my cable knit blanket on the bed, and curling up with thick books in the evening. what are your favorite autumn things? 

 as the summer comes to an end, i'll share some of my favorite things from the past few weeks. and since a picture's worth a thousand words, let these snapshots speak for themselves....

embrace your life this week,
be thankful for the little things,
enjoy the last summer breezes.
you are loved.
