Kimbra and I are so in love with this song (we listened to it on repeat for the entire 3 hour trip up to Santa Barbara one November). She just showed this video to me, and I think that it is amazing! I need to move Stigmata to the top of my Netflix queue.

For a study break tonight (I have midterms this week) I decided to make the glittered pumpkins. I cannot believe how easy they were to make. They are absolutely stunning! I noticed that a girl posted on the article that she was going to use these for her wedding centerpeices. I am filing that away in the back of my mind (I've always wanted to have an Autumn wedding) because these are so beautiful and elegant! I can't get over it--I'm so excited about how easy they were to make! I bought three little pumpkins at Trader Joe's today, and I only bought two different colors of glitter, so I'm going to have to stop in at Michael's again and get a third color--I think that I'm going to go with brown. I'll take a picture and post it on here as soon as I get the third pumpkin done.
If you're in love with Fall as much as I am, you should definitely try making these. Now, my project for next weekend is to make Pumpkin Cornmeal Muffins for my neighbors. : )

There is something about Autumn that is so inspiring to me. It makes me want to fall in love. I love the crispness in the air, the colors in the environment, the smell of burning wood, pumpkins, warm spicy drinks...and of course, the fashion. I love scarves and light jackets and sweaters and new makeup and haircuts. Maybe it's the formality that is introduced back into our lives. Summer has never been my favorite--carefree and laid back has never really been my style. I love the structure of new class schedules, and I really love football season. I love apples, pears, grapes, broccoli and sweet potatoes (which are all in season now!). I just love everything about this season...
