Flying Through Autumn

Really, it seems like I was complaining about the summer heat just yesterday and now here Alice and I are, snuggled up under a comforter on the couch keeping each other warm because I'm too stubborn to turn on the heat. 

But I'm basking in every chilly, sunny moment and remembering how I longed for them just a few short weeks ago. 

It was actually the perfect weather this past weekend for the Maple Leaf Festival. We look forward to Maple Leaf every year, both because it signals for us the start of the fall/winter season and all of the family fun time it brings, but also because of the doughnuts.

Oh, the doughnuts. 

Nothing warms your belly on a cool October morning quite like a hot (made-right-in-front-of-your-eyes) doughnut and a cup of cider!

We look forward to those doughnuts all year.

We made sure the animals in the petting zoo got some treats too:

I had a pretty quiet week in the studio last week. Alice was sick and the girls both had Friday off so I didn't get many days to myself. Hopefully I'll have some new things by the end of this week. 

I hope you're enjoying the cooler temperatures (if that's the case where you are) and taking full advantage of the start of snuggle season!
