It’s finally cooler here which means a positive increase in my attitude and emotional well-being. Monday was so cool I actually got to break out my most favoritist boots on the planet: the [Frye Harness boot](http://www.fryeboots.com/subpages/catalog-detail.asp?sn=77305&col=VBL&fcp=catalog.asp?cat=CLASSICS@sty=HARNESS@gen=1@goToPage=1). I strutted around town all day sporting my boots, my fave Gap jeans and the thin suede jacket Steve bought me for my birthday (which was in June so I’d never worn it). Ah, good time, good times. The downside to all this cooler weather and increased positive energy is that I don’t want to lock myself in my studio and work, I’d much rather be outside playing in all the crisp air. I did get some stuff done yesterday and have set up several projects for the rest of the week. The weekend brings a trip with Valerie and Kevin to Hermann, MO and a celebration of Octoberfest. Kevin doesn’t drink so we’ll be in good hands when it comes to the designated driver. I’m hoping for more crisp air to further boost the merry mood of the day!
