entry no. 97...



which means only three more entries until my giveaway so keep yourself posted!
+++

as for the photos, they're from our friends' house- the holy road house. last sunday, we enjoyed delicious local food & great conversation with them. right now, i wish i could be enjoying the calm of a sunday afternoon. my life is so hectic right now & i feel like everything is out of place. we're preparing for the artist market that will be held this weekend {which is great fun!} but on top of that, i have an exam to study for + a paper to write. i can become really frustruated with how little time is left for simply knitting or sitting down to read a book.
there are three things that have brightened my week in the midst of all of the chaos...
+bringing in a large wooden bowl of freshly harvested arugula & making an autumn salad
+ finding a large box on our porch & opening it up to find a beautiful handmade card & brightly colored apples. {thank you, lynn + isaac!}
+enjoying delicious, healthy fudge around {anna's} table

in the midst of to-do's, appointments, & little sleep, there are little glimpses of happiness & true blessings.

love,
natalie
