Today it feels like fall. It's 50 degrees and it is super windy. In honor of that, here are a few things from the web that are great for fall.

Stemless wine glasses made from recycled bottles.

Rose Cut Ring.

Minnesota Grown Apples.

Watch PBS to learn about the National Parks.

read this.

I highly recommend that you start reading this blog.

Sobrina Tung writes this lovely blog named Quiet Like Horses and I just can't get enough of it. She writes in a way that is honest and true. It's like you are her best friend and you completely understand the story she is telling because you have known her like, forever. Her writing is visual and you are right there with her through all of life's adventures. Read this blog. Enjoy!

I went for a walk last night with my friend, TJ. His dog, named Scotch, is full of energy and found great joy drinking water right out of someone's sprinkler system. While we laughed at Scotch's enthusiasm, one of TJ's neighbors called over to us. He was up on a step ladder cutting grapes from the trellis over his driveway. I never realized that someone was growing grapes right in Northeast Minneapolis! The friendly neighbor offered TJ and I fresh grapes. Despite the seeds, the grapes are very tasty!

big bag.

I have never been the type of girl who carries around a big bag for a purse. My purses have always been small. Tiny. Just big enough to hold the basics. Until now. I'm in love with this big bag that I won. It's an Orla Kiely bag from the shop All About Cute.
