Autumn again.

Happy October! Revisiting this space after so many years, and I feel excited by having the time to once again dive in and make it my own.

In lieu of trying to recap the past years, let's just pick up with a glimpse of things I'm loving right now.

I'm loving long morning walks in the cool air followed by breakfast and tea on the porch as the sun streams through the trees. Sometimes our wild backyard feels like paradise. 

I'm loving this workspace in the morning, as the rest of the house is dark and quiet, the dog naps and I work through the hours alone. The quiet, which I was scared to reconnect with at first, has quickly become my favorite part of this arrangement.

I'm loving that working from home has finally provided me with an excuse to always always always have fresh flowers in the house. When I was a little girl, I imagined that one of the best things about being a grown-up was always having flowers in the house. Now that I've managed that, it is every bit as magical as I imagined. Amazing how the smallest changes can make a difference.

I'm loving adventures in town, such as to Charlestowne Landing...

...and Angel Oak. After years of working so hard that I barely remembered I lived in Charleston, its beauty gets to slap me in the face all over again.

*Three times this week, I have been asked what I want to do when I graduate in December.

I suppose it's time to begin figuring that out.

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
