{Inspiration} Apples, Pumpkins, & Corn…

Ah, October… I adore you. I’m always hit over the head by the colors & traditions that the Fall brings. This last weekend, our valley celebrated the Festival of Family Farms. Like the last four years, kiddo & I headed out to Gordon Skagit Farms to delight in some beautiful weather, apple trees, pumpkins, and a corn maze. Chris was already at the farm making whirligigs for hutch studio.

If you have followed this blog for awhile now, you know that I have visited this farm since I was a kid. Some trivia: I found a double pumpkin in one of the patches at Gordon’s in fourth grade & ended up winning the pumpkin contest in school that year as well! I also took my students from the first watercolor class that I ever taught (at Skagit Valley College), to Gordon’s to paint. So, it just wouldn’t be October without a visit to my favorite local farm. The weather was truly stunning this weekend which made it perfect. 

What did you do this weekend? From the photos streaming through instagram… we weren’t the only ones visiting corn mazes & apple orchards!

{Everyday Inspiration} That time of year…

It’s that time of year….corn mazes, pumpkin patches, apple trees, & the beautiful light of a crisp autumn day. Fall is really my favorite season. But lately, I view my days a bit like this corn maze. I’m sort of stuck in the middle right now- looking for which way to turn. I’ve been so busy with klt:works (along with life) that I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. However, I’m looking forward to finding my way out  of this maze & running free. Until then, it’s one day at a time. It was a gorgeous weekend here in the valley & we were lucky enough to get outside to enjoy some of the sunny days. How was your weekend?
