I'm a little late in sharing my love for this post, but better late than never, right?
Scarves are certainly one of my favorite things that are ushered back in the fall season, and MAV certainly knows her scarves. Her 3191 Miles Apart post shares some really unique ways to wear scarves this fall. My favorites are the Tie+Drape and the Bow.

I spotted the pie pumpkin for $1.25 outside a little family run grocery store and had to have it.
That $1.25 brought me so much joy as I carried my pumpkin home and decided I needed to bake a pie. I also love to collect the red maple leaves that fall from the trees in the park on my way home from work and school and put them in my pockets.

Moving away from friends and family is a hard thing to do and it takes a few things to make it better:
- Unlimited long-distance phone plans
- Internet connections
- Comfort items like handmade blankets and stuffed toys
- A lovely boyfriend who joined me on the adventure (actually #1)
- Meeting new people
- Exploring your new living arrangements
- Having daily adventures

If I do attempt it I will have to create my own pattern, but at least I'll know which wool to use.

The Owls Sweater pattern is designed by Kate Davies and can be found for free on Ravelry. The pattern was clearly written and easy to follow. The sweater shaping in the back makes this sweater flattering and without any hideous bulges, ha! The pattern calls for buttons to be sewn on for the owl's eyes, but to me, that's a little to kitschy. I plan on rocking this sweater like the humanoid version (pictured below) with skinny jeans and a black blazer.
