This autumn Seattleites were dealt a nice set of cards from the weather gods. We actually got eased into fall instead of plunged into a dark, grey, rainy wall like we've had in years past. Last month we've enjoyed both warm days and chilly & rainy days. Together, they made for a nice dip into sweater weather. I felt like for once, I could actually get excited about it. Heck, today I even had a photo shoot on a pumpkin patch. Given all this I have begun to build my nest to prepare to hibernate. I was never this way until I moved to the northwest but now, it's become a bit of a tradition. It's like my body says, cozy up. It's going to be a long time before you're frolicking around in shorts again. Fun highlights have included nestling in for breakfast in bed one weekend morning, toasting goodbye to summer on my roof with a little added kick (helloooo bourbon), and then a dreamy video shoot for work in the mountains. All and all, I'd say I'm ready.
