Hello Monday...& thanks Mr. Columbus

How can I not give a bright shiny hello to Monday....
Thanks to Mr. Columbus -- and that whole spirit of adventure that changed the planet -- the kids are home...and I love it.

So Hello to linking up with "Hello Mondays" thanks to Lisa Leonard....
she's our newest Earth Angels Studios' artist and I am so taken with her charming jewelry designs and their sweet sentiments.

Hello to new traditions.  We had a day out with my in-laws to play tourist in our own town -- we are just 50 miles north of the City but quite rural. Drizzle or not, we had a super time and I got a few pics with the iPhone.


Hello new tradition. While it seems all of the Greater NY Metro area comes here to pick apples and pumpkins and get lost in the corn maze, visit the wineries and our wonderful restaurants and shops...we locals don't seem to take the time to do these wonderful fall things.  So this year, we tried something new and we did too with some young friends in tow. We're already planning on next year...
Hello to a new week with so much to do, I am trying on a new schedule for size. Now that the new website is up and running for a month, I think I have a sense of how things are really rolling along. 

 
Hello to registering for my first yoga class. I am curious and just have to try out the new center here in town for a few classes.

Hello to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Have you had your mammogram this year. I just booked mine.  Thanks to Debbee Thibault for celebrating the spirit of awareness with her new "Pink" pieces benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Hello to trying something totally new on our site. For the first time we are presenting prints from an artist along-side her original paintings. I adore Diana Card as a human being and respect her talent and style as an artist. I love that we can present this affordable option with her signed prints.
 

Hello to running into friends in a pumpkin patch.

And Hello to running, yes running around, but I am back to running more frequently and it's a good thing. I love the cooler weather and I found a super new loop that suits me.

Hello to Fall, a new season and a new season of adventures. 

xxoo Jen
