Three Things — Fall Edition

Three Things, my Wednesday post series, inspired by my love for bite-sized, tiny but mighty pieces of information.

One. This —

Europe in the Fall is my jam. I always want to be there this time of year. Brugge, Paris, Rome, all the places. Cruising through the leaves, ducking into doorways to marvel at old favorites, and finding new ones as well. Currently, I have three different friend groups traveling in Italy. I’m doing a good job of keeping my jealousy in check and also helping them with advice. It’s a balancing act. I consider it a win.


Two. “All The Fall Things” —

I’m all about the pumpkin and cooking these days. I made a version of this soup. I’m big on having a recipe structure, but not paying too much attention to detail. Substituting, experimenting, and just plain omitting. It was delicious. We ate it while a birch candle burned. It was fall overload. Then I fell asleep like I had been drugged from this tea. Divine. The kind of sleep I remember from childhood after playing outside for hours and dragging my exhausted self to bed.

Highly recommended.


Three. Let Go. —

“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.”

Fully agree. Here’s what I’m letting go of:

  • Middle of the night anxiety over an unfinished to do list. Screw That.
  • My belief that I’m not an evening worker-outer. Historically I’m not, but I also swam laps last night at 7 pm. Sooooo take that!
  • The belief it’s up to me to have all the answers. Puh-leeease, who do I think I am? All I gotta do is show up + do my best.

Here’s what’s taking it’s place:

A peaceful feeling. It feels like a white, empty, well-swept room WITH great lighting. Hahhaha even my day dreams have great lighting.
