Happy October everyone! Where did the summer go? We've been having a lot of rainy days here lately... and while we haven't felt those true crisp autumn days yet, our temperatures are dropping day by day. This may be the first year ever where I'm not already nostalgic for summer and am looking forward to cooler temperatures and enjoying the beautiful fall foliage.

Speaking of nostalgia, Aimee at Artsyville has revived her List it Tuesdays and this week's theme is Things That Make You Nostalgic. This was tough, because I could fill journals with things that make me nostalgic... I guess that's both the blessing and the curse of growing older. I sketched a few ideas out on a journal page and these are some of the things I came up with.

Today also marks the beginning of Blogtoberfest at I Saw You Dancing.  This challenge provides daily prompts and encourages people to post to their blog every day during the month of October.  That is a real challenge for me, but I'm going to give it a shot.  (Today's prompt is to set intentions.)  What are your intentions?


  1. I remember all of those items in your sketch! I will participating in Blogtoberfest, we´ll cheer for each other! :D

  2. I remember those items too...nice sketch! Did you know that the old vinyl records could be making a comeback?! Glad to see you're doing Blogtoberfest ~ :)

  3. Oh! Love this! The page layout is perfect! Memories pretty similar to mine - except no beach. I did love long bike rides (in the days when there wasn't so much traffic around) Chrisx

  4. Well done. I can name those too as being something I would be nostalgic about. :)

  5. Only now I discovered this nostalgic picture. I love it!
