Rainy fall days make me happy. They beg for warm cozy sweaters, rain boots and a hot latte. If I'm lucky enough to spend the day at home, they are perfect for a movie day snuggled on the couch with Billy, Daisy and Bella.
I've fallen in love with the work of artist, Rebecca Rebouché. Her paintings are whimsical and inspired by nature. I'm drawn to the soft colors and the use of trees, birds, flowers and other little animals. There's a childlike wonder about her work that makes me smile.
Oh, Maple Pumpkin Butter. You are delicious and a perfect complement to my morning whole grain english muffin. In fact, you're just perfect on your own...straight out of the jar. We're going to be good friends this fall.
This weekend I was introduced to a Kansas City tradition - Holiday Mart. I have my coworkers to thank for cluing me in to this shopping exhibition. It was just a short walk from home so I spent my day weaving in and out of endless booths. I didn't even mind the Christmas music. It inspired my purchases of a snuggly scarf, an assortment of handmade holiday candles, and a few ornaments (owls in Santa hats!).
Like one of those boring work conventions except with a bar and credit card machines ringing.
