Last weekend I went to the zoo here for the first time in about 10 years or so and couldn't believe how much fun I had. I've never loved the idea of caging animals that should otherwise be in their natural habitats, but I think they can be good for education purposes. Adding to my enjoyment was the deep discussion I had with my friends about (****nerd alert) what animal form our Patronus and Animagus would take. Wolf or seal for me.

Its tights and boots-wearing season again. And football games and hot drinks. And I'm excited.

This Sunday there was an American flag planted for each 9/11 victim in St. Louis' amazing Forest Park. It was a gorgeous day and so moving.

The farmers market in Tower Grove Park in Saint Louis is my favorite place to be on Saturday mornings in August and September. For 20 bucks this morning I got peaches, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, peppers, a chorizo breakfast taco, an amazing scone from this British baker who lives in StL, and honey from a local beekeeper.

time to start blogging again

No more excuses...gotta get back in the groove. It has been a gloriously rainy, misty day, which I don't love in excess, but a welcome change to weeks of no rain. The perfect way to end the second week of tiring since the kids still aren't quite in the routine I'm craving. And the perfect night to stay cozy and bust out the hot chocolate.
