Seen, Heard & Bookmarked: Welcoming Fall


Oh man, I love fall. I look forward too it more than Christmas. I work hard not to hasten summer's end, just so I can extend the lovely anticipation. Because although it's my favorite season, and one of my favorite things in the whole wide world period, it's also the shortest.

This morning I got up bright and early on my day off to attend a training session at work. In and out in 90 minutes. The air is crisp and (much needed!) periodical rain showers have the world smelling scrubbed and fresh. I left work and headed to a local coffee shop to cross more things off my digital to-do list. Only, I'd forgotten my computer bag at home. So I trudged on back, put on sweatpants, and am spending the afternoon embroidering and catching up on my DVR. It seems forgetting my computer wasn't a mistake so much as a point in the right direction.

Tonight we are headed to Portland's Night Market and the weekend is devoted to the odd project plus lots of lounging. (I hope.) Here's to enjoying cooler weather, the opportunities a new season brings, and stealing those little moments that can bring the most joy.


Here are some things I've seen, heard and bookmarked lately:

The Magic Yarn Project has my whole heart.

PBteen + Harry Potter. Teenage me is all, like, OMG! (These sheets are grownup enough, right?)

Husband and I just finished the miniseries Manhunt:Unibomber and were pretty riveted—so many fascinating aspects to the story we didn't know! I read this article to delve a little deeper.

Learning about "dot journaling," via Erin, who also referenced a site for "bullet journaling." It sounds right up my alley in that it appears to be a hybrid of journaling/personal planning/scrapbooking. (Correct me if I'm wrong!)

Mario sent me a link to the website Pack Up + Go the other day and I was instantly enchanted by the concept. I'm in!

Dusting off the pressure cooker...ramen is on the menu this weekend.

My current read. (It's good!)

Mail order TP that will make your bum"smile." (Says the girl who orders her TP off Amazon.)

Loved the book, badly want to watch the show. (Worth the upgrade to HBO? Have you seen it?)

The original, forever and always. (My sweet husband bought me a new one on a recent trip...the weather is slowly getting cool enough to wear it.)

Absolutely enchanted with these embroidery patterns by Thread Folk. (The re-release started yesterday for kits/pre-printed fabric. PDF patterns are coming in the near future.)

Currently using this skin brightening system once a week and my dullness-prone skin looks awesome. (I've been a fan of his Truth Serum for ages.)

Currently wearing this popover on repeat. (Comfy + effortless + so many complements! And now it's on sale!)
