thanks to all that shared and read the life lessons blogs. it took a lot for some of the bloggers to share such intimate details of their lives and i appreciate you giving them that voice.
in other news...the month is drawing to a close before i really got to know it. with the time change in november, i feel like i missed the harvest moon. but...it was lovely and bright...in my window on those sleepless nights. here in the south we are still tettering on that borderline between summer and fall - days quite warm but the changing leaves signal what our hearts know, fall is here.
i participated in relyn's autumn celebration swap with amy jo and got the sweetest autumn package this week - filled with all kinds of goodies and goodness, i think i squealed when i spied a penguin classic book - how did she know i collect those? pictures will come soon - i'm sooooo behind on photos as i have been living, breathing and yes, it feels like eating health information technology and exchange. (sorry, i'll stop whining now) it was such a fun swap as it was for a book ("gently used if possible"), something handmade (ugh, i'm soooo not the crafty girl i've found out) and something "autumn."
as an indulgence, i purchased a ring from my friend, leslye's etsy shop. words cannot describe what beautiful work is on this ring - i adore it. if you are a fan of handmade jewelry i encourage you to check out the shop - gorgeous work. just gorgeous. "live, love, laugh" - definitely words to live by - yes?
dark clouds are hovering by my window and i'm reminded there are miles to go before i sleep. i hope the day treats you well...and finds you safe and sound. me, i will work with the raining dancing on my window panes and prodded by the thunder to speed me along.
