etsy finds for a grey day

I don’t mind grey days. They make for some of the coziest I think.

Manalive, it’s been busy around here!

It’s been a nice weekend. I’m feeling on top of my long to-do lists today: Joel’s 30th birthday is pretty much planned and our move and upcoming trips are shaping up nicely. It’s also been more fall-like here the past few days, which has made me start plotting some knitting and quilting projects.

We saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. It’s such a lovely thing to share some laughs with friends as the city lights grow ever brighter, the sunsets, and then the familiar soundtrack announces the start of the film.
