i love the open road, and all that it suggests

That video is so eerily beautiful..( silent film "Chelovek s kinoapparatom (Man With A Movie Camera)" (1929) with the Smashing Pumpkins' song "Soot and Stars")
only one rule in the patch-no smashing pumpkins

I always feel like I lose a little chunk of time when I'm sick, all of a sudden it was the very last day for pumpkin picking! We braved the cold weather and whipping wind for a bit and headed just a few miles away to our favorite orchard. I love being in the middle of town near all of my thrift/vintage shops yet so close to farmland and trees, it's definitely middle of America. I can't really describe the feeling around here..normal? I was always dreaming of New York as a teenager, working for a magazine or something..but I was just too afraid to take that big of a chance, and unsure of what I really wanted. Growing up I just wanted to get know..anywhere but here. I even succeeded once right after high school(early graduation), packing my car full and heading south to my childhood best friend's. My parents drove the 10 hours and brought me back, much to my chagrin. I had the chance to move out on my own a year later and I was a little more prepared, and free! I still don't know what I want out of life, who really does? That's kind of the adventure. I just know I don't want to run anymore, I'm right where I want to be. I am however, a huge fan of road trips, even mini ones! I think that has to be one of the sweeter things..finding interest in the mundane and beauty in the everyday. 

picked the perfect pumpkin

a foxtail and a fleet fox!
i'm jealous of you birds
 I made french onion soup(again!) and my pecan and pumpkin pie..did I mention I love comfort food when I'm sick haha
Mom brought me this new french press she snagged at the thrift store for 50 cents! It's amazing. My first one..toasted southern pecan coffee has never tasted better.

I shot this through Luke's celestron astromaster glad I bought it a few years ago, it gets a lot of use!

Hunter's moon aka Sanguine,dying grass,blood..the first full moon after the harvest moon.
I'm a lunatic.

Happy Fall!
