jump around

In my opinion, you are never too old to play around on a playground and jump around! The other day, my boyfriend David and I did just that. And brought along my camera of course.

happy happy weekend

Yay Weekend

Happy Friday! This weekend, my dad, mom and brother are coming to Charlotte for a punting camp and to visit me! I cannot wait for my dad and brother to finally see my new apartment and for me to show them around my new stomping grounds.

changing leaves


Saturday was the first day of Autumn. FINALLY. Between the football games, changing leaves, big slouchy sweaters and boots, pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween and leaving the windows open, there is no question that it is my favorite season of the year. Sorry Christmas, my vote is for Fall.

This will be my first Fall in the Queen City and I cannot wait to see how beautiful it will look all dressed up in a warm color palette. I am loving my new life so far, and can’t wait to see what this next season has in store for me!

warm apple cider and spiced rum

Happy Halloweekend!

In celebration of beginning of Fall and the eve of All Hallows Day, I’ve been eating and drinking and thinking all things pumpkin and cider. Last night, I had some friends over and we enjoyed some warm apple cider, a pinch of cinnamon and spiced rum. To make it all we did was mix the ingredients together in a saucepan and heat until it reached the desired temperature. It was a perfect drink to enjoy after enduring the freezing rain that comes along with the change of season.

Next on the list for today is to carve some pumpkins and then make some fresh pumpkin puree from scratch. With the pumpkin puree we are going to make pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin butter. Yum!
