September Roundup

(Eleven days into October,
but better late than never).

Art I made:

I'm currently enrolled in my first ever drawing class and being forced to set aside time for art is probably one of the best things that has happened to my spare time. 
Starbucks @ JWU - Providence, RI

Places I explored:

Sand Dunes - W. Greenwich, RI
Stepstone Falls, W. Greenwich, RI
City of Providence, RI
Boston Harbor Hotel - Boston, MA
Post Office Square - Boston, MA

A band I saw:

The city streets I ran through at night:

Somewhere in Boston, MA
Walks home - Providence, RI 

A hand I held:

How I spent my spare time:

I'm in the midst of reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It's a beautifully written "children's book" allegory for grown-ups and I recommend it x100!
Thayer St. Art Festival - Providence, RI

Recipes that caught my eye:

Cherry skillet cakecornbread with caramelized apples and onions, and skillet bruschetta with beans and greens. Can you tell that I have recently invested in a cast iron skillet?

I'm also in love with the idea of baking fall/winter pies in seasonal squash as seen on Twigg Studios' winter squash crustless pies with hazelnuts and maple cream. It's a must-try for the approaching fall season. (My mind is buried in recipes and ideas that scream out fall).

How I celebrated my 21st birthday:

Drawing cityscapes, Stumptown nitro cold brew, Japanese food on floor cushions with crossed legs, and vegan cupcakes in bed. 
The Shop @ Fox Point - Providence, RI 
Sakura Restaurant - Providence, RI 

Something to remember:

"Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure."
— Daniell Koepke


temperatures have dropped down to lower numbers beginning with 5 and 6. My storage closet has been raided for scarves and I've been steaming gallons of milk for hot cocoas and lattes at work. There's a chill in the air, apples on the shelves of every local grocery store, and one less leaf hanging onto a tree as every second passes. Welcome, Fall.
