September is one of my favorite months of the year.  I love the way it seems to mosey on into fall-like weather.  Already there is a chill in the air when I wake up in the morning and I’m craving warm, cozy foods and beverages.

To welcome in the season, I decided to come up with a list of my must-do September activities:

1.  Visit an orchard.  I’ve never done this before and I’m not sure where to go for my visit, but picking ripened apples off trees seems like the perfect way to celebrate September.

2.  Buy the perfect pair of riding boots.  My skinny jeans have been looking very lonely and are begging for some company.

3.  Host a dinner party with a fall harvest theme.

4.  Face my fears and finally utilize that gym membership I purchased last month.

5.  Read a non-academic book.  Going back to school leaves very little time for fun reading, but one can hope.

6.  Find a great recipe for vegetarian lasagna and bake some apple crisp.  Apple crisp has already been on my mind for weeks now!

7.  Oktoberfest for beers and brats.

8.  Add more organization at home and work. Time to simplify so I can face these busy times!

9.  Finish crocheting the throw I’m making for my living room, and just in time for cozy winter days.

10.  Sneak in one last hike or outdoor activity before the colder temperatures and snow start to settle in.

What’s on your September must-do list?

Rainy Mountain View

I don’t know why

but with you I’d dance

in a storm in my best dress.

It rained all day long today.  As much as I’m longing for a little sunshine, I can’t help but really love rainy days and their coziness.  It was nice to spend my evening eating comfort food, reading, and listening to the rain.

Well, Hello


Hi!  I’m Mel!

I started Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles so that I could have a place to document the things in my life that make me happy, such as food, cooking, local events, everyday photography, and other sources of inspiration.

I also hope that this blog will be a place where my readers (that’s you!) can come whenever they want to add a little sunny-ness to their day.

See you soon!
