Maybe it is the fresh coat of warm white paint.

Perhaps it is the whimsical art {Cori Lee Marvin} I fell in love with a couple weeks ago at the Haliburton Art Show finally hanging on the wall with bits of washi tape. {another great find was Freshly Printed}

Perhaps it is this perfectly grey day with just a hint of Fall in its wings.

It could be the Amelie soundtrack  and classic country pouring out of the Bose.

I just might be the scents of squash soup and crock pot bread lingering on the air.

Maybe it is the warm light cast by the lamp in the corner.

Perhaps it is the new kitchen layout.

It could be the knitting plans I have in mind.

Maybe it is the pleasant surprise of colourful Poppies coming to life in our front garden.

Maybe, most of all, it is the invigorating early morning workouts we have been doing.

Whatever it is, it feels like home.

It feels like Autumn and this cabin feels more and more like home.

go gently + be wonderful

    Lovely, lovely. I’ve got my eye on that knitting pattern too. I missed your last few posts – must have got lost in my feed – but a big congrats for your magazine article. Your pictures and words are always beautiful.

    Hi Erin,
    I haven’t read your blog in a couple of months, so I’m catching up and couldn’t resist a comment on the P90X! My husband did this workout for a while and always tried to get me to join him, without success. Ha! It’s just too intense for me! :) Re: earlier waking–I have heard that our natural biorhythms favor an early wake-up time. I’ve also been trying to get up before my 31/2 yrold. When I do, it is glorious! I’ll be checking your blog more frequently now, as the garden is winding down and the dark is creeping in on both morning and night. I enjoy your photos and words so very much. Have a great day!
