I found a new link up to join up with from a friend’s blog, so welcome to the first installment of 7 Quick Takes (SQT with the blog This Ain’t The Lyceum). It’s just a list of seven things. And I’m a list lover. So, here we go, this week I’m going with a Fall theme. I said this on Twitter a few weeks back.

It’s the bridge from summer to winter. I miss those long summer days, but I’m excited for snuggly winter nights and holidays. Somehow this Fall has equaled a lot of transitions for
Bonus to anyone who can name the pop culture reference in my blog post title today! But that’s not what this post is about. This weekend was the quintessential Fall weekend. It was weather perfection and we took advantage of every second. Saturday morning found us at our favorite pumpkin patch, Pinehaven Farms in Wyoming, MN. It was cloudy, but not too cold and not
It’s been a long week in which I have had to work the early shift three out of the five days this week at my job, so my brain is a bit mush.

I didn’t watch the debates last night. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. This election season is crazy, this world we live in is scary as heck right now.

They have flats, booties and sandals that are all adorable and also extremely comfortable! The other thing that is
Where did September go? Like seriously? Wow. It’s time for Currently again. This month Anne of In Residence is joined by Jacqui of Drink the Day. Here are the Current happenings for the prompts they chose! Cheers-ing – Well as you saw the other day we definitely cheersed quite a bit at our annual Oktoberfest. Beyond that we’re cheersing a year at my job, eight
Our Eighth annual celebration of home brew beer commenced over the weekend and as usual it did not disappoint. Sometimes I feel like we’ve been doing this for more than eight years, but we counted and that’s where we’re at. We’ll have to do something big in a couple of years for year 10 I guess! Anyway, it was so nice to see so many
If you’ve been following me since the old blog then you know that I used to be part of a traveling Christian music group that retired in 2015.
