the state in-between.

12.08.2011


Us bloggers, we tend to get quite excited during that shifting period of time, where one season slowly begins to transition into the next. We look forward to those little things, like homemade pumpkin bread in autumn and the first snowfall of the winter.

This prairie province is currently nestled in that in-between state. There are next to no remnants of autumn, only the occasional lone leaf blowing across the yard. Winter seems hesitant to settle down and stay awhile. It snows. It melts. Repeat.

This in-between state is the perfect time to check things off my mile long to-do list (hello, giftwrapping.). It prompts frequent visits to our favourite coffee shop, which is always filled the the brim with hipsters (oh, yes.).


I'm quite content right here. My winter wonderland will come soon enough.

  18. where. did you get that sweater. i've been looking for a mustard yellow sweater forever!! that is so beautiful.
    your photos are so enchanting. we are not exactly in that in-between state, seeing as this is texas. it's getting unnaturally warm here, the cold front seemed to fly away in our sleep. but i am not ungrateful. this weather is beautiful.
    and so is this post. love. you described it perfectly. :))
