INSPIRING ME LATELY...

it's only barely august but my brain is already squarely in late september. has that been happening for you too? i don't know what it is, i just need a change. i've got the itch.

i've been listening to these two songs on repeat the past few weeks and they have left me feeling all kinds of antsy for fall and for fingerless gloves. and for getting my sisters out here for a visit. and obviously for kittens in tiny garden spaces. ;)



i hate to wish away the last of our summer, because these times are really good times for my little family of three. but shoot, september. i'll be ready for you this time.

  1. Natalie, thank you thank you thank you! That track from The Staves just put my baby girl to sleep in my arms, after almost an hour of grizzling and crying post booster-jab at the hospital this morning. Now she is so peaceful and I have you to thank. Hooray!

  10. I am a big Autumn fan. Except that this year we haven't really had a summer in England yet. A few warm days so we can hit the beaches in Wales for a few weekends would be much appreciated! Beautiful songs too.

  14. I have a brand new bright red trench from j crew hanging in the closet and taunting me, I tell you. I'm super ready to change up the clothing rotation.

  15. This has been the hottest summer ever (literally, in the record books) in St. Louis. And I am sooooo ready for Fall. I've even broken out my fall CDs and wore a long sleeve shirt to church, cause dang it, I miss them (plus the church always had the AC cranked up)! And it did drop into the 90's this week, I can feel Fall coming on. I think one more BBQ and trip to a lake will do it for me though.

  17. The curse of a long-distance relationship: my brain is never in the present, always waiting for me at the next scheduled visit. Lucky for me that is currently only three days away! :)

  19. I saw the Staves with Bon Iver a few months ago..they were amazing!

  20. I've also been jonesing for fall... it makes me feel silly because I feel like I was just recently pining away for summer!

    I feel you though, there is nothing quite like weather that allows for big chunky sweaters and cute boots, walks through crunchy fall leaves and apple cider!

  22. What beautiful songs. I was getting antsy for autumn - cosy sweaters, boots, walks through crackling leaves - but then the sun has FINALLY decided to come out in bonny scotland and wishing summer away seems daft. That said, as soon as it slips behind a cloud, all thoughts of Autumn are back on. Especially Autumn clothes...
