View From My Window

I usually take a train when I go home to visit family. It's usually a dull ride that can seem never-ending. But every once in a while, I look out the window & see some picture-worthy views {like these}

On my most recent trip, I captured the very beginning of autumn.

Back to Reality

I knew sooner or later, I would have to come back to Chicago & leave this little one.

And truth be told, tears were shed as I got on the train to leave. But I know I'll be heading back in October, so I have that to look forward to.

Being gone for 17 days can feel like being gone for 17 months. And my "to do" list proves it! It's extremely long with things like going through two weeks worth of mail, restocking my cupboards & refrigerator with food, finding a 2nd job, changing out my summer clothes for fall/winter clothes, and laundry. But none of that is fun to talk about, so I'll show you my latest creation.

A friend of mine was looking for cute recipe cards & couldn't find any she liked, so she did the next best thing...asked me to make them!

I think they turned out pretty cute :)

I'm hoping to come have some new holiday cards & decor in my shop soon. Stay tuned!

Autumn Subway Art

How it's September already, I have no idea! But turning over the calendar to the fall months has me in the mood for autumn. So I created a Autumn Printable.

You can purchase it for yourself in my Etsy shop!
