Hello blog friends!  It has been a long time, I know.  I hope there are people that are still out there to read.  I'm not going to try to capture my life in the last two months or so.  But I will say that since early August, my life has been more wonderful and happy and interesting than it's been in a long, long time.  And also filled with so many confusing emotions that I can't do justice in a blog post.  But the one thing I do know is that I'm in love.   And that's all I'm going to really say about this for now.  I promise I'll talk about it another time.  But for now, I'm gonna keep it to myself.   I'm not saying this to be secretive and weird.  I've just always wanted to use this blog as a place to record the things in my life.  And I couldn't leave this out.  Especially after my long absence from blogging.  And don't worry, I'm pretty sure he's in love too.  It's just not something I want to share details about yet.   Another day.

And in between all of my feelings I've discovered, I have done some stuff too.  Work has been CRAZY!   I've never felt more work related stress than I have in the last few months.  I'm teaching a freshman transition course and it's so time consuming that it's put a damper on my real job responsibilities.  I need more hours in the day.  I've been so stressed in the last few weeks that I haven't even painted my nails.    Boys and work really stress a girl out! 

I was looking through my iPhone pictures and realized I have lots of stuff to catch you up on.  I'll start with the important stuff.  My favorite new accessories.  Duh.

I had to have this bag.  I call her the Orange Beauty.  And I'm pretty much in love with it.  I try to coordinate as many outfits as I can to this bag.  Lovely, right?
 And on my way back from Maine (another post) I picked up this wallet.  Michael Kors outlet style.  I believe I put this on my wish list a few months ago.  And the good news is I finally got to retire the Vera Bradley that I'm SO over.  No more Vera for me.  It was a phase, and I'm done now.  The consignment shop is gonna love me. 
I've discovered I need many new fall clothes but just haven't had the motivation to do any shopping for that.  I've been much to busy being crazy about a boy and working.  Good for my budget, bad for my closet.

 I think I may have some blog motivation again. I'm pretty distracted by other stuff right now but I'll do my very best. For tonight, I'll leave you with a picture of my favorite fall decoration.  My Syracuse pumpkin.  Love.

I'm going to make a list of the things I need to blog about...but first some sleep. 

Thanks for sticking with me!!

Hi Stranger! I am so happy to hear from you! I think it's great that some wonderful things have happened for you. The orange bag is beautiful! However, I am having a hard time believing that you haven't painted your nails. :)
