I believe I have eaten my weight in mashed potatoes and now deserve a long, long nap.
Hope you are feeling the same. xoxo- A.

From the other side...

Lake Michigan, my lovely muse. I can't stay away, no matter what side of the lake I am near.


Autumn in the City- Day 2

152 toll booths later, we are here...
Chicago you are so pretty in the fall!


Autumn in the City- Day 1

The four of us hit the road last week and headed for the city. I am sure we were quite a sight. One who insists our children no longer need strollers, one who doesn't like to walk, one on crutches, and me completely exhausted before our trip even began. I found my cell phone was the easiest way to document our days and still be able to hold a little hand. In the end these photographs were a perfect match to the mood of the trip. A mix of chaos and beauty. I have a lot more... I hope you'll stop by later this week.
xoxo- A.


Good morning... leaving the woods for a day in the city.
....though I didn't forget to update the outlet first.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo



There is just enough light and just enough breeze to take flight.
We'll follow the clouds...
And, grow where the wind leaves us.


I know a perfect place for wandering, and
watching the last of the leaves fall...
I could use a few days of being lost in the woods...
How about you? Care to join me...


As usual, I am late to the party.... Polaroid week started on Monday. And, I've just now taken a minute to check out the pool. Amazingly gorgeous! My favorites have certainly inspired me to get scanning.
More tomorrow. xoxo- A.
