Happy Wednesday! The sun is shining, the leaves are turning, creativity is flowing, my checklist is... my checklist (oh, well), and I have coffee in my hand. Life is good.

Today I'm thankful for:

Psalm 127
My alarm went off for twenty minutes this morning before penetrating my sleep enough to wake me. I think that maybe, just maybe, I'm tired. We read Psalm 127:2 in family devotions— "It is vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for He gives His beloved sleep." There is so much comfort in the last part of that verse!! I think I'll go to bed early tonight...

Cold medicine
Sunday morning I woke up feeling a cold coming on, and I immediately downed enough medicine to heal a herd of cows. I'm telling you, I would swear by Zicam and Sambucol. Sunday I was sick, today I'm just about back to "normal" again. Which, by the way, is a near miracle, considering the fact that for the past five years or so, every time I catch a cold, it moves to my chest and I'm sicker than a dog for more than a week. Needless to say, I'm one happy chic right now.

Hemp milk
I found Hemp milk at Wegmans! I'm trying to avoid dairy and soy products, which is a huge challenge, especially when it comes to coffee. I just can't stomach black coffee, and hemp milk is thick enough to act as a pseudo cream. Sort of. At least it's better than rice milk in coffee.

There is absolutely nothing as wonderful as crisp fall air. It is my favorite season, hands down. Warm colors and cool air. Gorgeous afternoon light. Bonfires and apple cider. Sweaters and scarves and jeans and socks— all of my favorite clothes. And pumpkin spice cider at Hyperion Espresso. So many happy thoughts!

Logos and branding
Yes, yes, yes! I've been working on rebranding for several months now, and I think I've finally got it. Give me feedback! I want to know what you think of colors and styles!





Personally, I'm rather partial to the yellow & gray set, or the red & gray set. Feedback? Please?

I love the brown or green... but I tend to like earth tones the most.

Yellow, definitely. Hints at sunshine and whimsy. And it doesn't overpower the words.
