seven thingsInspiration, Eating, Listening, Watching, Reading, Working & Making

hey there, friend!

We made it to October!!!  There has been the eeeever so slightest touch of fall in the air here in CFL this week.  I'm trying not to get too excited about it lest my exuberance scares it off.
But knowing that we're almost at the end of a brutal summer has given me the chance to let out a breath I didn't know I was holding, so at least there's a bit of relief somewhere.  That and we bought Halloween Candy this week, which has me excited, too.
Speaking of holidays, the first and second installments of my annual end of year Gift Guides is up on the blog!  Seems too early for that, right?  But shipping is still a huge mess, truly, and you do not want to wait if you want to have gifts for the holidays this year.  
So this week there's been relief, anticipation, and of course, these…


The nice weather has people of all ages and with all methods of conveyance taking early evening lazy joyrides around the neighborhood.

Here are the other things that have been getting me by these days.  I hope they do the same for you, wherever and however you may be.







Thank you so much for following along, First name / friend! I'm so glad you're here.


And hey, if you're looking for some thoughtful design help for your overwhelming project, we should work together!


Keep taking care of yourself, okay?


Hear From You Soon,
