 Guess what? My favorite season of all is upon us! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the various aspects of every other season, but fall has always been my favorite time of year. I love the crisp weather, beautiful colors, and the comfy sweaters (obviously)!
Here are my top 11 sweaters that I'm currently pining over.

M and I headed down to Columbia County last weekend for some distillery work & fun.

The city of Troy has been celebrating Restaurant Week since Monday evening. I decided to make a spur of the moment reservation at Daisy Bakers so M and I could have a nice date night. But unfortunately plans changed and we ended up going to The Ale House on River Street instead.

You can tell before stepping foot into the place that its a neighborhood joint. The regulars were deep in conversation at the bar with their beers in hand and sports up on the tv. We were told to sit anywhere and opted for a table in the corner. The servers were nice, but the food.....
The room was too dim to take a decent photos, but I tried my best anyway.

It has been an extremely busy week for me, but I wanted to share just a few interesting finds the Interwebs had to offer me the past couple of days.

I was in the mood for a delicious treat after my lunch the other day and needed a little something to satisfy my sweet tooth. I rounded up some of the girls at work and we headed out to Menchie's for some froyo.

Every once in a while I like to take some time to appreciate the simple things in life. I feel like I'm always rushing around or working, which sometimes keeps me from just taking a moment to enjoy some of life's little pleasures. So I've decided to share some of the things that have put a smile on my face over the past couple of weeks.
My good friend Alexa makes the most adorable handmade cards and frames that she will personalize just for you. I asked her to use her crafty imagination and create a beach themed thank you card.
I absolutely love it. If you would like something personalized for yourself check out her Etsy page or contact her via Facebook or Twitter.

After having a late night on Saturday I was definitely in need of a considerable amount of food to start my Sunday off right. Alexa, M, and I headed down to the Olde English to try out their brand new menu on the first day of serving brunch. We arrived early enough to snag a nice table out front where we enjoyed the perfect weather and watched passersby enjoying themselves as much as we were.

Happy Labor Day SLT readers!
I hope you are all enjoying your day off, no matter what you're doing.
I wanted to share a song I've been listening to non-stop for the past week or so. Not only is the song beautiful and fun to listen to, but it was created by the most adorable couple on earth.
