Crumb.

I’m pretty much obsessed w/ all things fall lately.

I cannot wait for tomorrow because we are supposed to get a pretty awesome cold front.

This means I will be able to sip on my coffee a little bit longer in the morning instead of chugging it in 3 seconds to avoid combining the taste of hot coffee w/ the feeling of humidity in the air.

These are only Texas problems.

Plus, cold fronts make for awesome hair weather here.

The other 99.9% of the time I look like I stepped out of a sauna.

Back to fall obsessions: pumpkin everything, orange and yellow colored leaves, espresso scented candles, crisp, cold runs in the morning, mid-day breezy walks w/ Annabelle, cozy nights watching Real Housewives of anything and everything in my robe and fuzzy slipper socks.

This is my life.

Don’t be jealous.

Favorite fall obsession: warm fruit crumbles.

I’m channeling my inner Greek grandmother this week.

It’s all about the apple and sesame seed smash bang.

I’m envisioning eating this whole thing by myself, w/ a scoop of ice cream on top. Duh, it’s made in a mini cast iron-skillet so it’s practically free game.

There are some things in life that you just have to be selfish with 🙂
