I'm excited for fall, and I hope you are as well! To kick things off, I'd like to share a few pictures from recent activities. These are places I've visited and people I've met. I share them with you now because I truly believe that they provide a greater viewfinder into this month's "first thoughts." And they certainly are places I'd visit a second time (and pick again).
