Monday’s Mood: Fall Feelings

Monday’s Mood: Fall Feelings

Happy Monday, and to all my Canadian friends & family- happy long Labour Day weekend! I know this day for most is more bitter than sweet, as it marks the end of summer and the beginning of colder months. After an exceptionally hot summer (I was living in the Mediterranean, after all!), I was looking forward to some gray skies, rainy days , and cooler weather that Lviv promised. ¬†Although its been a little more freezing than expected, with a lot more rain that we’re used to, it’s so good to have an excuse to just stay inside curled up in a blanket and watch a movie. However, this weekend was exceptionally sunny and warm so we took full advantage by spending it entirely outside. Here were a few of my favourite things:
