Denim and Pearls {In the Closet}

Happy Wednesday! Hope y’all are having a good week. I’m having a week. We’re preparing for the return of the students and no matter how much you think you’re ready, you’re not. All the stuff you kept putting off because “it’s summer” is now due. Eek!

But I’m not gonna lie, I love it when the students are on campus and things are busy. Although I don’t have as much interaction with the students as I used to when I taught, I still enjoy seeing them wandering the stacks, sitting in the chairs, and just hanging about.

Besides the students, the return to school signals the return of Autumn. This makes me incredibly happy. I love the coziness and casual comfort of the season.

This is one of the outfits I can’t wait to transition to Autumn wear: a fisherman sweater, grey ribbed tights and brown riding boots. I already have it planned.

What summer outfit are you ready to make Fall worthy?

Share Your Good News {In the Cafe}

Share Your Good News {Living Outside the Stacks}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know that I like to do a little something called “Fist Bump Friday”, where I encourage my friends to share something that has made them happy during the week. Sometimes we get so bogged down with life and the crazy that comes with it that we forget to recognize the good things. So I thought it’d be fun if we all shared and celebrated together.

So please, share your good news in the comments below. Remember, it doesn’t have to be big or earth shattering. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me.

This week, I’m happy that I was able to purchase a salmon for dinner tonight! OK, I know that’s weird but I love love love salmon and when I lived in Pennsylvania, I used to be able to buy a whole salmon, for whatever reason I had a hard time finding them here in Missouri, well, last night I found one. Salmon for dinner. Happiness.

What made you happy this week?

31 Days 31 Photos 31 Stories {In the Dark Room}

I’ve decided to join my friend, Beatrice Clay, for a photography challenge called “31 Days 31 Photos 31 Stories: My Favorite Things“. Each day, she provides a prompt and we interpret it however we wish. The catch is that we must tell a story in six words with each photograph. Fun, right?

1. Self Portrait
