Colder Weather

Colder Weather makes everything better.
Colder weather means multiple cups of coffee instead of just one in the morning.
Colder weather means striped sweaters and my comfortable jeans.
Colder weather means better hair days because there is less humidity in the air.
Colder weather means feeling youthful and young and more motivated to get out and do things.
Colder weather means Warm Jackets and Warm Scents like Pure Amber and Vanilla Brown Sugar.
Colder weather makes me appreciate hot oatmeal in the mornings.
Colder weather makes me appreciate my warm blankets and bed at night.
Colder weather means more hot chocolate.
Colder weather means more smiles on my face. :) <--- Exhibit A.
Colder Weather means a big huge mug of happiness.
Colder Weather is the smell of Freedom and Innocence.
Colder Weather is Running like you are Flying.
Colder Weather is a Piece of Art.


Yes, that's right. I'm happy. :)  The weather was nice, my classes were nice, and even getting complimented on my hair from a random stranger who had the urge to pet it was kind of nice in an odd but sweet way. I got an 100 on my eighteen paged paper that I worked my butt off for and the Teacher even said I did an outstanding job. I had three, count em, three cups of coffee because the weather made it essential. One of them being a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I went grocery shopping with my Mom and even though it was a small thing, it was fun. :) Then I went on a walk/run with my best friend Austin and I even got to enjoy petting his dogs and spending time with his family before I went home. To top the night off I watched an adorable but sad, sad movie called "Restless" with my Mom. I don't agree with some of the stuff that went on or what they believed in, but if you can look at it objectively then I will say it was a cute movie over all.
Yeah, my Monday was Epic.
With a captial E.
How was yours?


  1. Ok. For starters. That is the coolest pumpkin I have ever seen!!! Super congrats of the 100%! Sounds like a lot of fun! And grocery shopping with moms is fun. :-)

  2. That's so awesome. :D I love it when Monday's turn out epic....Which isn't very often it seems. I love reading your blog Soph, 'cuz it's always so sweet and cheerful. ^_^ <3

  3. What a lovely post:)
    I've definitely been enjoying my oatmeal too these days!

    P.S. Thanks for letting me know you watched Restless! I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!


  4. P.P.S. That apple of my pie picture is fantastic!

  5. Cold weather #3 -8 me too!
    "At once I knew I was not magnificent" love it, and the beautiful watercolor picture that goes with it.
    The "Apple of my pie" made me laugh! =D
    That pumpkin is narwhale!
    Mmm Hmm, petting dogs is always enjoyable!


  6. I have to admit that I have three cups of coffee most days, and now that it's slightly cooler I drink four if I'm feeling tired. True coffee addicts, we are... :P

    Oh my goodness, I LOVE the feeling of getting 100% on a paper! Not that I've done it... but I've gotten REALLY close on REALLY hard papers. My English II teacher was so challenging and taught me so much, I worked my butt off to get an A in his class and it's always so uplifting when teachers are encouraging! Good work, my friend!

    The thought of a random stranger petting your hair still amuses me, haha!

  7. Hey girl!
    Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog, "finding beauty". :) They are such a joy to read, and you are too sweet.

    About the Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino/Cool Whip dip, yes there is a recipe!

    It's 8 oz Cool Whip to 1/2 Cup of Cappuccino. :) {The recipe used Pumpkin Spice, but you can use any kind!} And you can eat it with Honey Grahams. :)
