I'm super late in posting my September recap  but I was inspired to stick with it when I saw Daphne's awesome September highlights.   

September came and went and just flew completely by!  The beginning started with another trip to the Bay area, and was buzzing with the start of the sports season (which would have gone completely unnoticed by me except for the fact that Taylor no longer hangs out with me on Saturdays) , and the Democratic National Convention.  (Clinton speech = uhhhmaaaaaazing) After that, I went into hibernation and dropped off the face of the planet to prepare for my exam, but was then whisked away to our getaway in Palm Springs shortly after.

My favorite part about this time of year are the mornings.  Crisp and cool, not deathly cold yet (by California standards anyway).  For some reason something in me really loves leaving the house while it's still dark.  The sunrise over the clouds during my morning drive to work have been pretty spectacular.

Here also, are July and August recaps if you missed those!

Melody, your sketches are so awesome!! Do you use a particular program to do the sketching? I love the water-color feel. I'm all game to learn to illustrate like that! :D
Sighhh I wish there was Autumn in Singapore!! Jealous of the great Fall weather you guys must be having. How's the French cooking coming along by the way? :D I'm sure you'll be awesome at it!!
