Autumn in Connecticut...

So, while it may seem like I fell off the planet all together, I actually just went on vacation.  The handsome man I'm married to has never been able to go back to CT with me to visit my family, so in the (nearly) three years we've been married I've always gone alone.  We finally had a chance to visit, and to my great delight, we got to go in October!!  I love San Diego, but I'm an East Coast girl at heart, and I miss the seasons, the cool weather, trees changing colors, apple picking, cider donuts, boots, scarves, and all the other things that go along with fall.  I got to enjoy it all again for a week, and it was wonderful!  Here is just a snippet of the wonderful autumness of our trip:

 Lovely trees!

Had to get a crazy jumping picture!  Not sure if I should be sad I'm not in the picture, or impressed with my own amazing photography skills!

Stitches East!  A knitter's heaven

The thing about shoes....

We're going on a trip to see my family.  I've just started packing and already have seven pairs of shoes that absolutely must come with me.  And that's without planning out every outfit I'm going to wear.  Let's just hope my bag isn't overweight.  I think it would be a little embarrassing to have to open up my suitcase and show the world that I packed fifteen pairs of shoes for an eight day trip.

October skies...

October has come, and with it cold weather and rain!  I'm pretty excited, although I heard it's suppose to be sunny again by the weekend.  At least for a few days though I can wear my boots without needing to turn the AC to make it cool enough!

In which I actually finish a project....

I have a bad habit of starting lots of projects (sewing, knitting, scrapbooking, cleaning, laundry, etc) and never getting around to finishing them.  This week though I did finish one of my knitting projects!  My cute little blue scarf is done... just in time for an 80° week!  It turned out super cute and even if San Diego is too warm, I'm definitely going to rock it in CT in a few weeks!
