Falling for Fall, The Sequel

Walking out the door this morning I was greeted by a cool crispness in the air. It was in the upper 50's, which meant I got to run back inside and grab my new trench coat. Yes, it might be somewhere in the 80's when I leave work today, but it definitely kept the chill off me this morning. And it cheered me up about accidentally sleeping in and being almost 2 hours late to work. But with my work schedule that put me here at 8:15, so it's not as bad as it sounds. And my boss is pretty forgiving about stuff like that, since I'm here at 6:30 AM most the time. The thing that sucks the most is I was just getting to the great part of a good dream. D'oh.

On the way to work I kept thinking about all the holiday activities I'd like to plan. I've got a lot of stuff to get done around the apartment before I'm ready to revv up my entertaining engine, but this book should help me get going. It's my paper gift for our first anniversary. I've just started reading it, and I'm also reading Newsweek and the Frank McCourt book at the same time, but it will no doubt help inspire me.

I so know what you mean. I loved that I had to run back in the house and grab a hoodie for Hannah. Oh and I sported a sweater tied around my waist, just in case I needed to fight the chill of the crisp air.
The air smelled different. I loved it. Give me more of this weather.

I adore that book! Some of it's helpful and some is so old-fashioned that it's a little funny, but it's definitely Granny Chic and I love it so much that I keep it on my coffee table all the time!
