reading: Murder in Belleville by Cara Black. It's the second in a series of murder mysteries that take place in Paris. My favorite genre + anything French = Whitney heaven!
making: bunting banners for my classroom. Instead of having a hodge podge of posters smattered about the room, I'm setting it up like a petit Paris! There is going to be areas designated as school, the movie theater, a museum and Mademoiselle's house and then the posters are going to be hung by theme. The banners are going to announce each location! Here are the bunting instructions I used.
pinning: fall style. Oh fall fashion, how I love your layers, riding boots and rich hues! Isn't this plaid look enticing?
anticipating: when students walk through the door to my classroom on September 8th. I am at a new school this year so I'm extra nervous and excited. I'm also feeling extra motivated to try some new things-- like a syllabus in the form of an infographic!
loving: quiet nights with a fall-like breeze coming through my window, spent with my cat and a good book! (photo pin).
