can you believe it's nearly november?
oh, autumn. i can't believe it's nearly the end of october and it still feels like mid-summer here in south carolina. after living in chicago and dealing with its bitter cold winters, i never thought i'd actually want cold weather; however, now i'm craving the cooler days - those days when i could grab a scarf for more than a fashionable addition or to wear those knee high boots and run to starbucks with a friend.
rumor has it the temperature is supposed to dip to a low of 50s this Sunday. i'll love that, especially since ryan and i are going to a harvest festival which will be an outdoor event. as much as ryan and i love dressing up (remember?), we're hanging out with my family for halloween weekend and spending the evening at the harvest festival. i haven't been to one since i was a little girl, so it's been awhile. i'm kinda looking forward to it since it'll be something different and because we'll be with my family. and i hear there is still a lot of candy, which is good since that's all i really care about anyways. *wink*
so what else are you looking forward to this spooky weekend?
i'm looking forward to seeing ryan again. it feels like forever - so it'll be wonderful to have him here with my family. we're also planning on watching the GA vs FL game on saturday. (note that i did not say look forward to.) and i did get all my big wholesale orders out - whew! - so i don't have as much sewing to do this weekend, but i do plan on working on some more orders and also continue to work on the winter collection for the shop.
