Drizzly Daze

First of all, only one week to fall break.  Heck yes!  I'm in love with this season.  I love everything about it.  The changing leaves, the cozy sweat-ahs, the new candle scentsy scents, the wonderful rich food.  One of my favorite things about fall though, is the candy.  Maybe it is because Halloween is just around the corner.  I don't know but I love fall candy.  The other day I went to walls-mart for conditioner and I left with not one, not two, but three bags of candy.  I recommend you try candy corn M&M's and pumpkin spice Kisses.  In my defense, I got the third bag of candy for baking purposes. 

I'm starting my seventh book since I started school.  What have I been reading you may ask?

My dad came to visit last night and surprised me with a trip to the bookstore.  My dad has always shown me the importance and value in a good book.  In the south, men are expected to wear boots and be rugged and muddy.  My dad isn't that.  My dad doesn't lie in his recliner watching sports and he doesn't get his gun when it's deer season.  That's what I love about my dad.  He has been through alot.  He is stronger than any "manly mountain man" will ever be.  He has overcome so much because of Jesus and His provision.  I love my dad.  I am able to talk to him about anything.  He taught me to read, love art and culture.  He taught me to be open-minded and to not have prejudices.  I'm luckier than any other girl because they don't have a dad like mine.  Anyway, my dad bought me Girl, Interrupted and three Moleskine journals. 
I have a story to tell and I can't wait to share it.
