20121017-124627.jpgToday is a good day.

Outside, it feels like gorgeous fall weather. Not too hot, not too cold. Just like last Sunday, when a friend I met while studying abroad in England came to visit from New York. Together, with Olivia, we comprised the moccasins crew, as pictured above. Those cozy shoes are perfect for chilly weather.

Also today, I was able to snatch a free spot on the cozy couch in Tree City Coffee and Pastry during my lunch break to relax and enjoy their tasty peach jasmine iced tea.

I have this weekend to look forward to, including more time with friends and family, my first 5K and some catch-up time with one of my favorite Medina teachers.

But I also have this evening to enjoy a much-needed dinner at Ray’s with some Kent friends. A cozy meal and a beer is the perfect way to end a great fall day.

What is your favorite part about fall?

The light at the end of the tunnel

One week of classes, a few projects and two final exams to go.

As the semester winds down, I plan to take advantage of extra free time and prepare for a summer of scrapbooking. I’m excited to rummage through some of the supplies I’ve kept for years but never had time to use. However, my favorite part about scrapbooking is looking through my pictures and choosing which ones to place in my layouts.

Although I have a lot of photos to sort through, I have an idea about which events and categories I’d like to tackle first.

My top three scrapbooking ideas are:

1. Photos from my childhood

Grandpa and me, circa 1993

2. Photos of my brother and me for his high school graduation gift

My brother Matt and me, Christmas 2010

3. Photos from my college years so far

Ashley and me, Lady Gaga concert (February 26, 2011)

And if anyone wants to join me for free Friday and Saturday crops at Archiver’s in Fairlawn, let me know!
