Fall is my favorite season! Admittedly, it is not at its most magical here in Texas where we are still having daily highs in the mid 80’s. Last week, however, I traveled to Boston where I got a brief taste of fall. I drank nothing but hot chocolate and was reminded of just how brisk and enchanting autumn can be.
I was there for the iGEM Giant Jamboree. I’ll blog about how awesome iGEM is another time, but I must admit that for now I’m thrilled our “season” is over and I’m looking forward to taking a break from it (it has been wholly consuming my life over the last few weeks). I mainly stayed at and around a convention center in Back Bay, but I enjoyed venturing out to Cambridge one afternoon.
Although I’m back in Texas now, the trip put me in a thoroughly fall-ish mood. Here is a wish list inspired by this autumnal sentiment:
12 Months of Bellocq — Bellocq Tea Atelier. I drink a slightly alarming amount of tea. Having it arrive at my dorm in a charming yellow tin once a month would be quite lovely.
Tippi Sweater in Embellished Bee Print — J. Crew. I love the combination of vaguely scientific bumblebees with some fun sparkle.
Chocolate Chip Cookies — Tiny’s Milk and Cookies. This “walk up cookie and coffee shop serving homemade ice cream and a variety of other treats from the Tiny’s bakery” is FINALLY opening on Monday (11/14) at 7 a.m.! I could not be more thrilled!! I’ve been eagerly awaiting its arrival since last summer.
If you live somewhere with crisp, colorful leaves take a moment to frolic in them for me! 🍂
