It may not be snowing in Portland yet (or ever), but it is in my apartment. 
And this and this is on repeat, already......


I feel like I've been really fortunate with the amount of work I've been able to do with my internship. They have been amazingly inclusive, and I've learned so much about the process of creating with others. I designed these Christmas party invitations for them. 
(Mad Men theme at a horse race track, Ohmy!) 

And I created the cover art for their holiday magazine

I can't wait to see what comes next!


Green and orange seem to be the theme this Thanksgiving(and I'm thankful for that and much, much more)


Hidden gems of my neighborhood, there's always something new to discover.


Winter is coming, I feel it in my bones. Also by the fact that it's dark before I can get home, which is making my walks/doing anything at all much more difficult to achieve. I even feel my self confidence waning. But with these struggles, it feels even better when I get up and push through.

And sometimes, it's just as satisfying to burrow up with some knitting, Downton Abbey, and my pup keeping my feet warm.


I'm not sure that anyone has a more beautiful drive to work than myself.
(I've been listening to a lot of this and this on the way)


The leaves are slowly disappearing from the trees, and even more slowly disappearing from the sidewalks. (Their shadows still remain.)

On another note, I have been reading Why I Wake Early, by Mary Oliver. This has been with me since I read it, "When it's over, I want to say all my life I was a bride married to amazement."


It may be autumn here, but there is still plenty of green sprouting up. 

And what about those crocus? It's enough to take your breath away (and they did)
