Today was cool and calm.  I find the breeze comforting, a good reason to put on those sweaters I love so much. Morning is fresh, afternoon is sweet, evening the best - the clouds are pinker than peaches.

Two things ended and two things began these past few weeks - I finished my last class and officially graduated!! - I finished my nanny position with children that made my brothers seem tame - M and I embarked on a new phase of life and I begin my staff position (temp until Oct.) at Northwestern tomorrow. Yet, both of these new things come on the cusp of another change that will dramatically change the life landscape - moving to Colorado for seven months.  Its coming in 29 days.

So in the mean time I'm savoring the morsels of Minnesota this fall by apple picking, driving up to the north shore, and spending the crisp autumn evenings with M.
