Riverside Art Market Find

This pretty little lady caught my eye this weekend at the Riverside Arts Market.


I wouldn't say that I have the best eye in the world for great art, but I find that this picture goes well with the mood I've been in lately. It made me smile and I couldn't' help but buy it. I think I just need that reminder sometimes to suck it up and be a big girl. Thankfully, I'm not yet in need of wearing Spanx.

Fall is Coming!

It's just around the corner. I swear I felt it this morning, but at 82 degrees, I think it was wishful thinking. Perhaps it was walking by the open screen door while passing under an air vent that gave me the illusion. In any case, I'm strangely excited. Fall always seems to give me that "feel-good" feeling inside. Comfort food, camp-fires, spending more time with family. It's such a cozy time.

For years I was anything BUT a fan of cold weather. Two years ago I finally accepted scarves and jackets as wonderful accessories and I've been transformed ever since. I'm not saying "bring it on" to freezing temperatures, but a slight chill in the air has something so refreshing about it. Not to mention, this is Florida, and there's no serious chill factor until that one week in February right before it hits 90 degrees.
