Maybe it’s because I had the most relaxing time here last weekend, but something this weekend definitely felt off. I have been looking forward to the beginning of fall for so long, and yet am not quite in the right mindset to be excited just yet. So this Monday, after one of the longest, yet quickest weekends I’ve had in a while, its important for me to look at the small things as of late, and get my spark back to enjoy my favorite season of the year. Here are a few of the things that have helped keep my spirits high the last couple of weeks.
