fall is in full swing around here. ❤
and, as you, know, I could not possibly be happier! well… I guess I’d be happier if it didn’t include a nasty cold that is keeping me from all the autumn-y goodness out there. but somewhere in-between blowing my nose, editing wedding images, and sipping my tea, I decided that if I couldn’t be out there right now, I might as well be making plans to get the very most out of my limited fall days.
soooo… usually on thursdays I bring you three things, but today… I’m bringing you THIRTY things because a) I love you guys, and b) I’m stuck on the couch, so what else am I gonna do?
