Can ya hear em? Cause that's about all that's been happening on this blog lately.

100% my fault, I know. I guess it seems that telling you all about the drudgery of my 9-5 and repetitive laundry experiences just isn't quite post worthy. I'm a "less is more" kind of girl, so I tend to write less posts, and try to say more in those posts, then write many posts of fluff.

All Fluff aside, there's some exciting new changes coming to Koala Chique very soon, as well as another wedding to gush about! I'm keeping it hush hush for now, but I can't wait to tell you all about it!

10 Years

!0 Years ago, I was sitting in 9th grade homeroom, waiting for the bell to ring to head to our next class. The vice-principal suddenly came over the loud speakers and said that everyone needed to remain where they are until further notice and for the teachers to turn on their televisions.

The images that we saw, the smoke, the destruction, the despair, seemed so unreal. Sitting there in my classroom on a blue-sky Georgia morning, I struggled as a young teenager to understand what was happening hundreds of miles away. I had permanent goosebumps all day, even when we were sent home early, I sat at home with my parents in shock.

To those who have served or are serving our country, thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping me safe and protecting the American way of life.

To all the rest, hug your family and friends today, call them and tell them how much they mean to you. Life is precious, and we should never take our time here on earth for granted.

I'm curious, where were you 10 years ago?

Saturday Morning

Up with the sun (or perhaps a few hours later, the sun should have its moment of glory after all) and zipping down the road. The sights and smells of the farmers market. The variety of their harvest, it's like taking a step back in time, to a much simpler place.

Behold, our spoils of the trek.

Perhaps some vegetable lasagna with peach and sweet potato muffins for a delicious end to the meal?

I'm looking forward to dinner now. . .

What has you out and about this beautiful Saturday?

Today is just one of those days

No, not the sad, everything goes wrong days. The perfect, blissful, sunny and cool, but not too cool, but yay fall is on the way! kind of days.

Sadly, I'm cooped up in my office. My windowless, fluorescent lit office. Between you and me, I have found way too many reasons to wander outside for a few minutes, just to get a few minutes of fresh air.

It's days like today, with the crisp air of fall on its way, that make me wish Nate and I were winding our way up the Blue Ridge parkway in North Carolina. Dancing leaves in the wake of our car, the clouds like marshmellows dotting the sky, and that crisp mountain air that I swear has healing properties.

When the weather turns cool, where does your mind take you?
