– Though I have resided merely a short distance from the beach my entire life, not until recently did I begin taking full advantage of the gorgeous seashore. I detest water… and being wet {with the exception of showers, of course}…, but oh, goodness — is there anything more pleasant than walking along the water’s edge on cool, fall Saturday mornings? I think not. And with a camera in hand… serious perfection.

– Ah, while on the subject of cameras… I can scarcely believe that just two short months ago I was intimidated by DSLRs! Yes, I still have a great deal to lean regarding the technical aspect of my Canon, but I have improved significantly since acquiring it in late August. {Yay!}

– Perhaps you’re wondering why I am posting on a Wednesday? Typically, I share a little something here only once a week – a result of my rather hectic school schedule. Today, however, was a testing day. We were released from classes quite early with minimal homework. And so… here I am!

– Pumpkin… an autumn source of comfort I absolutely adore. This Pumpkin Carving candle? Oh-so-incredible! Also: Here are a few pumpkin recipes for those of you interested ~ Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, Warm Pumpkin Spice Milk, Pumpkin Bagels, Pumpkin Banana Bread, and Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal. {Please excuse the dreadful, old photographs!}

– Finally… to all those who recently ‘liked’ the Munchin’ Mel Facebook page: thank you, thank you, thank you! I appreciate it, so much.
