Rise & Shine


Good morning, loves!  Welcome to a brand new week.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you're all feeling refreshed and ready to take on a brand new week.

I had an amazing weekend.  J & I took a drive upstate to do some leaf peaking and although it's not quite peak foliage time, it was gorgeous nonetheless.  We also went to a farm, where we did a little shopping and ate some delicious corn and apple cider donuts.  Add a few romantic date nights thrown in there and this weekend was pretty much as good as it gets :)

Now I'm feeling rested and content and ready to start the new week. So what did you all do this weekend? 

Have a wonderful Monday, sweets!

Hey, Dawn! You had a wonderful weekend, October is the pumpkin and corn month, right? I was home alone and watched a lot of Meryl Streep movies and also participated to a sweet fund raising: I both cookies and all the money went to sick children. Happy Monday, Dawn :*

Apple cider donuts sounds pretty interesting. This weekend I took a trip to L.A. where I drank some apple cider "beer" and it was pretty good.

I need to go apple picking or pumpkin picking one of these days.
