the sunday currently, volume 54.

i know it's national coffee day, & i know i've featured some kind of coffee cup on each of my sunday currently posts this month, but i couldn't resist sharing this photo i took on friday, which captures the autumn abundance i spied in trader joe's. if this doesn't make you feel that tingly fall feeling, i don't know what will.
Happy National Coffee Day! I mean, really, how can you not smile on a day that celebrates the elixir of life? Kidding... kind of. While I love my caramel macchiatos & my pumpkin spice k-cups, sometimes I wake up & just want a good ole cup of English Breakfast Tea. That wasn't the case this morning though, as Justin & I rose with Starbucks Sunday already on the mind. And as we listened to somewhat inappropriate, misplaced rap music as we waited for our coffee confections in the line, I knew today was off to the loveliest of starts...

these photos were taken in pinehurst in march, but they have always felt like fall to me
Happy Fall, y'all! With the Fall Equinox comes the first official day of the season, & I have the wine-colored nails to prove it. Today I am raising my glass to toast the season of crackling fires, zipping myself up into the coziest of boots, & that little spark in the air... the one that tells you that Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Years are just around the candy-&-tinsel-festooned corner. Perhaps you'll join me in celebrating today, by both reading & sharing some currentlies...

R E A D I N G October's Real Simple. I haven't cracked any of my issues open in months, but when this one arrived with a black cat on the front, I couldn't resist. Already enjoying it, too. I'm still reading World War Z as well, for school. W R I T I N G plans for my official relaunch in the blog world. I have a few little design tweak…

1 year!
Today marks 1 year of TSC here on siddathornton. Today marks 1 year of rising each Sunday to get my post up before noon. Today marks 1 year of people linking up & sharing their currentlies with us all. See volume one here. This project has been such a blessing. I've gotten to know a lot of you through this linkup, & I hope I get to know even more of you in this next year to come.

R E A D I N GWorld War Z, for my Ethics class. I'm pretty intrigued by it. And it's nice to be able to read a novel, as mandated by school, since I'm not allowing myself to indulge in pleasure reading until this semester comes to a close in December. W R I T I N G a LOT of journal entries in my homemade planner this past week. I had quite a rough week, as far as school is concerned, & writing out my feelings, as well as talking them out with Justin, helped worlds.  L I S T E…

pretty nails, huh? it's definitely manicure day over here.
Well, hello out there! It feels like it's been years since I've written in this space. And I have to tell you: I miss it. I know that my decision to take the month off is the right one, but that doesn't mean I don't wish I were blogging. There is a LOT going on with my four classes this semester, but I feel like I'm already getting on a pretty good schedule [luckily]. 
Despite my blogging break, I've still found things of a similar nature to take up some of my time. First of all, I'm working on a bit of a redesign for this space, which I'm psyched to roll out upon my regular blogging return in October. I don't want to divulge too many details just yet, but I'll say this: there will be a few more pages joining the ranks of siddathornton. As it turns out, I need more organization in this space, & the pages I'll be adding aid me in that respect. I'm really excited about all …

the first pumpkin spice latte of the season happened on friday. hello, fall.
Hello everyone! It feels funny to be posting the day that my blogging sabbatical begins, but The Sunday Currently stops for no one [not even me]. It also feels funny to be writing this edition of The Sunday Currently right now, because it's actually Saturday morning... very early morning, as in 12:53 a.m. Justin & I will be driving back from Raleigh by the time this post will need to go up, so that's why I'm having to write it & schedule it in advance. I've spent the evening up until this point getting the house cleaned up, packing for my little road trip, & watching My House Wife Life videos. It's been a productive day, & I'm thankful for that. 
Since I'm basically writing this with the future in mind, I'm guessing on these... but I have a feeling they may be accurate.
