A snowy November visit to Minnesota

On Tuesday, we came home after an always-too-short visit up north to see my family in Minnesota. It was a lovely visit: cold and a bit snowy and very low-key. We woke up at 3:30AM(!) on Saturday in order to pack up and make it to the airport for our 6:15AM flight. We only brought personal items on the plane, and checked a bag, since we forget how much space winter clothes take up! I always feel less frantic when I'm not trying to juggle a personal item and a carry-on item...

Homemade chili

Life looks like (late October edition)

The weather in Austin is still very much flirting the line of summer/fall, but it's most definitely an improvement to just summry weather! Some leaves are golden-hued, and the wind today blustered around so many brown and red leaves, as well. I bought another small pumpkin at the grocery store, bring my mini squash-collection to 4, including one ceramic. I don't personally care for Halloween as an adult without children yet, but there is a sense around Halloween that fall has arrived.And like I mentioned in a recent post, life is just bits and pieces of little things:We celebrated the one-year birthday of our friends' little boy...
