Hello Autumn. Welcome to Our Home.

Autumn is officially here in our cozy little town and for Mr. Toast and I, it's our favorite time of the year. Well, that and Christmas! In fact, we might as well say we love the last three months of the year! For those of you who know us well, we're all about enjoying the simple pleasures that only Autumn and Christmastime bring. Things such as perfect cups of tea (or lattes!), sleeping in later, the fresh, crisp smell in the air, the colorfully painted trees before their leaves tumble to the ground, hot water bottles wrapped in soft covers, homemade baked goods...and more!

Recently, we stumbled upon a brand new coffee-shop, Bindle Coffee, located only 7 minutes from where we live. It's perfect! The owner is wonderful, the baristas rock the lattes and the music is gentle to the ear. All of these things wrapped together create the perfect place, constantly tugging at one's soul to be a part of on a daily basis.

We're excited to have a place closer to home when the heavy traffic doesn't allow us to travel downtown to our favorite spot during the week, the Little Bird Bakeshop. They are a 100% from scratch bakery, sharing their passion for food and community. We've met so many wonderful people there and love the tiny 'family' we've experienced from such a lovely, inviting place.

So, here's to a fabulous week, filled with unexpected blessings and tiny joys in each of our lives! Happy Autumn!

    1. Awwww...thanks so much, Tammie. Appreciate your warm thoughts. I'm in love with my hot water bottle and something Mr. Toast introduced me to not long ago. I do need to get out and search online for a new cover. I ordered one last year but the fleece is so incredibly thin, it's too hot against me, even with clothes on. I have to wrap it in a towel and it takes a bit of the coziness away. :)

  3. You really do have some beautiful color already in your neck of the woods. Maybe our big turning will begin after all the rain moves out. Your coffee shop looks like it was quite the success.

    1. Thank you, Genie. Isn't so beautiful already? The Bindle coffee shop has only been open for a month or two and they seem to be doing really well. Happy for them and to have a place closer. Especially when the weather is bad and we're unable to make it across town. :)

  8. Oh how I love looking at those amazing trees! This is such a beautiful photo. Autumn is my favorite season but where I live it is still in the 90s and we rarely get any color. I will be in Steamboat Springs in just over a week so this photo has me all giddy and excited at the possibility of some fall color. I am enjoying your blog and your art so much - so glad to have found your blog!

    1. Ginger, they were beautiful! I have several more photos and intend to post as the weeks progress. It was in the 90s here last week but it seems that the temps are now finally starting to cool down. LOVE Autumn! Enjoy Steamboat Springs as it is one of THE most incredible places to be during this time of the year. :)
