I Love September

Last Saturday was the first real autumn day that we've had here in Michigan.  It's like autumn can't wait to bust out in all its glory.  Here, autumn comes with hot apple cider, warm cinnamon donuts, beautiful foliage, cozy sweaters and cool breezes on sunny days.  I LOVE!

The Boyfriend and I went grape picking at a nearby farm.  It was amazing!  They had so many different varieties of sweet grapes and we ended up picking more than we initially thought we could eat.  Little did I know that there is no such thing as a limit to the amount of grapes we can eat.  We need to go grape picking again next weekend.
Labor Day was relaxing.  We ended up going to the Apple Store to marvel at the technology (no purchases, though) and imagine having his and her iMacs with huge screens, we got groceries, then we watched some TV and then we went to the gym for a mini-workout.  It was the perfect day- but how could it not be? Everyone knows that a great day is to be had when one buys fresh basil and shaved parmesan cheese.

I'm putting the final touches on a new print and will hopefully have it in the shop soon.  I'm also excited to be an upcoming contributor to Tall Dark Roast and hopefully I will have my first article ready soon!

Life is good and I am grateful.
