I have a mad case of wanderlust right now. I don't know what it is...perhaps it's the changing leaves and changing seasons. I always get excited for new things and new adventures when the seasons change. Related to this desire for adventure, I have been working on putting together a bucket list. On that list, is to visit every national park in the country. I am so very excited to start marking some off of my list, there are so many parks that I have wanted to visit for so long. I am hoping to hit up as many state and historical parks as I can along the way as well. I got this travel journal for a dollar online, it was used but only had one page filled out. It's previous owners were from Portland and recorded a trip to New Orleans. I also picked up one of the national park passports so I can begin collection stamps and cancellations from all the visitor centers.
I am also working on my line of fall products to be released soon, and my wanderlust has definitely played a part in that. Long live the adventure!

Hello friends! I just wanted to shoot you a quick update and tell you about a new blog that I am writing on. At the non-profit I work with, I was just named women's growth and development director...which is basically the coolest sounding title ever. Anyways, at a meeting this weekend, we decided to start a blog to update the community about what is going on. It is also a great place to talk about what we are learning through the process. I had to take a photo for the team bio page, and this were a couple of the outtakes. You can head to the blog yourself if you want to see which one I went with. It is a faith based non-profit, and there will be plenty more of my deep thoughts over there if you want to check it out. You can find us at this link. You can also just google Hope At The Heart and that should get you there. I haven't written anything other than my bio yet, but I would love for you to check it out. The other women are so much wiser than I am and they have so many good things already written. You can keep an eye out for my posts coming soon.

I woke up this morning, walked outside, and there was fall. Where did it come from? I swear it wasn't even close to being this cold yesterday. I didn't do much today. This morning, I went and picked up some craft supplies for some things I am working on my next festival. After that, I went to Panera and got a pumpkin pie bagel. Have you had one of these things? I am thoroughly obsessed. I dare you to try one with hazelnut cream cheese and not be as well. Then, this evening, I went to the corn maze and got good and lost. It was a great fall day full of fall activities, and it was made better with fall weather.
I am wearing another dress that I made today. It would have been better with tights, but I still love it. I have worn it so many times since I made it. If you were wondering, I did not wear this to the corn maze, I actually wore pants. I can't remember that last time I wore pants, it took me forever to find them.
