Autumn is quite the conundrum for me. On one hand, I love the changing weather, the light, the smells and the crisp evenings and mornings. I want to cozy up the house and buy pumpkins and gather fall leaves, light candles and make cocoa and gingerbread. On the flip side, no matter how well things are going or how "good" I am feeling, I never seem to be able to escape the blues when SAD starts to rear its ugly head. As the days get shorter and colder and we are forced inside more I feel SAD trying to grab hold of me and drag me down. Right now is a balancing act. I have a long "to do" list but I find myself struggling to keep up and focus. It happens every year but always seems like such a surprise... right now I am working on juggling my work and crossing things off the Must Do list while balancing with the Want To Do list.. like this cute purse pattern from Melly & Me.
