Is that you fall?

It finally feels like fall has come to Washington, DC. It's crisp and cool and leaves crunch under your feet when you walk along the sidewalk. It's definitely gotten me in the mood for an important upcoming event - Halloween! I'm thinking I'll decorate something like this for the big day:

One of my closest friends from this amazing place is coming to visit with her boyfriend whom I will have the pleasure of meeting for the very first time so I am super pumped. For the first time since, well, I guess since I trick or treated last? I am getting into dressing up. My darling sister is assisting me with her sewing skills to make one pretty kick ass costume (or so I hope!) The details are still in the works so I don't want to give away the surprise yet, but here's a hint for those you in the know:

Any guesses?

I'm here!

After months of encouraging by my fabulous sister Ruthie I have FINALLY started my blog! This will probably be in flux for a bit while I find my niche in what I want to write about, but it will
probably include topics such as:
  • Living in our nation's capital woot woot!!
  • Being a young professional
  • Being single!
  • All the fun things I do
  • All the great things that make me happy
This last topic was the inspiration for my blog title, "Slender Threads." This comes from one of my favorite songs by Dashboard Confessional -
"Some things tie your life together, slender threads and things to treasure
Days like that should last and last and last"

It really makes me realize that there are so many moments in our lives that really make it worth living; hopefully this blog will help me keep a look out for them and help me appreciate my everyday life a little bit more!

With that, I leave you with some pictures that have helped get me into the season. I'm missing New England fall this year, but these pictures make me feel like I'm back :)
