Thankful Thursdays

I'm thankful for:
  • the hail in the storm we got last night going away before it hit our side of town (thank you God and we are saying lots of prayers for the people who did get hit)
  • great coworkers who make work fun
  • getting to spend time with friends from college this past weekend

After three years of sitting in our garage or office or basement in various stages I FINALLY finished the chair that I brought back from my Poppop's.

It isn't a great chair, and the refinish job isn't perfect, but for my first time doing something like this, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.

These bows were another recent fun project - I made them for a friend who just welcomed her second little girl.

Smells of the Season

Smells like these are just a small part of why fall is my favorite season.

Bring on crunchy leaves, pumpkin bread, and cozy fires!

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Happy 25th to my not-so-little younger brother. (Dude, we need some updated pictures of us...)

Thankful Thursdays

I'm thankful for:
  • the wonderful almost-Autumn weather we're enjoying tonight (yay for open windows)
  • the long weekend coming up
  • Wipeout. I know, completely silly but just the mindlessness I need tonight. :-)
