Happy Autumn!

Today is the Autumnal Equinox!  And even better still, it has finally started to cool off here in Tennessee.  While the high is 86 today, I needed a hoodie when I headed to the gym early this morning, so things are looking up.  In honor of the seasonal changes, I sat down yesterday afternoon, determined to come up with a new fall-inspired design.  My Autumn Days charm bracelet is the result.

It is filled with a mix of pumpkins, gourds, leaves, trees, corn, and apple charms.  The beads are mix of Czech glass and semi precious stones that include carnelian, jade, jasper and goldstone, in shades of scarlet, amber, gold, pumpkin, coffee, bronze, deep forrest and shimmering leaf green.

In addition to today being the first day of Fall, it is also my 35th birthday.  I would like to be able to leave you with some sage words about life and the passage of time right now, but I just don't have anything truly profound to say.  I just know that in this last year I've found myself to be truly happy and peaceful, possibly for the first time.  I'm healthy, and the stress that once plagued me is gone.  I enjoy what I do every day, and I get to share my life with my best friends, Jim and Astrid.  Here's looking forward to the next wonderful 35 years.  Cheers friends.
