Can I share one of my favorite pictures with you? Yes?! Why thank you!
I snapped this during an impromptu birthday trip to Washington D.C. three years ago. About a month before my birthday, my husband and I found round-trip tickets from Chicago to D.C. for $99/person, and a crazy thought was born in our brains. What if we flew into D.C. for just one day? We could take the 7 am flight, run around all day (because almost everything in the capitol is FREE), and then fly back home at 8 pm. Even better, I had a very close college friend who'd interned in D.C. for a spell and knew her way around the city. I hadn't seen her in almost 2 years and really missed her, so I called and convinced her to drive up from Indianapolis and participate in our madness. So one crazy Saturday in November, the three of us woke up at the crack of dawn, grabbed our backpacks, hopped on the train to Midway, flew to D.C., and ran around to Arlington-Jefferson Memorial-Lincoln Memorial-Washington Memorial-Vietnam Memorial-National Gallery-Smithsonian-WWII Memorial (which made me a little misty-eyed because my grandpa always wanted to see it but passed away before he could). It's memories like these that make me glad my husband and I made a "5 year" pact before we started trying for children. We've grown so close and have gotten to do so many wonderful things during that time. I love that we'll have so many precious memories of running around in our youth to look back on :)
I think I love Fall because it makes me sentimental. I remember how Ray and I used to go pick Cortland apples at a little orchard outside Chicago, how much I loved bundling up in thick wool sweaters on crisp city nights, the sound of crunchy leaves blowing & scraping on the sidewalk, and growing up in Kentucky eating comfort foods and drinking warm spiced cider at my grandparent's house in the mountains. Ahhhh. Fall.
Whenever I first saw pictures of Anna Maria's new fabric line, I instantly thought of the coziness of Fall. Isn't she a genius with color? The Swept Away palette in particular caught my eye. It reminded me of the leaves turning...which is why I dug out that tree picture from Arlington National Cemetery.
I wanna share the Fall love, so I'm gonna be giving away a fat quarter bundle from the Innocent Crush line!!! I'm gonna wait and do most of my buying once this line arrives at my local shop, but I had to have some FQ bundles from Pink Chalk Fabrics to tide me over in the meantime ;) Why not share?
The winner will be receiving the Swept Away FQ bundle, which includes the 11 prints seen below!!!
