Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
I was out on my patio and looked in at my apartment and thought I would snap some photos. These are taken from outside my patio sliding door on Tuesday evening. The days are still warm here but the evenings are getting much cooler. I love Autumn! It's so cozy and the excitement of the holiday season and decorating for Christmas is just around the corner! I can hardly wait!
It's this time of year that I love to make crock pot dinners and light the candles around my apartment. While I was outside I could smell wood burning in someone's fireplace. A fireplace...that's probably the thing I miss the most living in an apartment. That and having a washer and dryer of my own that I don't have to add quarters to! When my mind goes there, I remind myself to be grateful for what I do have and stop thinking about what I don't have!
I am very grateful that even though I live in an apartment I've made it a home! A cozy home that I enjoy coming home to after a long day at work. A glass of wine, dinner in the crockpot and candles burning... a few of the little things that make me happy!
I'm also loving my wood laminate floors! Next month will be 1 year since my landlord put them in and I sure do love them a lot more than the carpeting!
Last weekend my friend Karen and I went hiking in the redwoods at Henry Cowell State Park so I thought I would share a couple photos with you. It's only about 20 minutes away but it felt like a mini vacation when we were there for the afternoon! There are a lot of hiking trails in Northern California but this is one of my favorites!
We got a late start but I think we hiked about 5 or 6 miles. I think we will be going back soon!
