Taking Stock

Throwback to a fall trip to New Hampshire back in good old 2010. Playing in the leaves.

I saw this list this morning on Amanda's blog Eloquent English and I liked it so much I totally filled it out myself so I thought I'd share. It was nice to reflect a little and take a moment to check in with myself. Hope you're having a terrific Tuesday!

Wanting: to carve our pumpkins
Looking: forward to dressing up for Halloween
Playing: Pandora – Lover of the Light by Mumford & Sons
Wasting: time on Facebook
Sewing: the top for my Halloween costume!
Wishing: I could take a drive to see the foliage up north
Enjoying: this beautiful, crisp fall weather
Waiting: for the clock to hit 5:00 so I can go home
Liking: my cozy new sweater from Old Navy
Wondering: what will happen next in my book
Loving: my incredibly thoughtful husband

Marvelling: at the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets lately
