In other news, it’s officially fall foliage season in Nashville, with pictures of orange and red landscapes popping up on Instagram, Facebook, and seemingly everywhere else. Luckily the weather has been beautiful and the cold hasn’t set in yet, but soon enough large winter jackets and thick socks will be necessary. Until then, I’m enjoying what’s left of the sunny weather and trying not to crumble under a pile of school work. Read on to see the things that are keeping me sane happy!

Fall foods, aka brussel sprouts, carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, are some of my faves, and this vegetable and lentil bowl does a great job of mixing them all up and adding ginger and tahini to make it P-O-P.


This necklace is really really pretty. That’s really all I have to say about it.

Lastly, this series of photos from India, taken by Andrew Jacona in 2012. Just got a little more desperate for that post grad trip.
