All the Things

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms." ~ You've Got Mail

First things first, I don't live in New York. But I do love the fall, and newly-sharpened pencils, and basically all the school supplies / stationery a girl could ever want (I also love You've Got Mail - who doesn't). But what I love most about fall is the feeling of a fresh start, a new beginning; like anything and everything is possible. Oh, and the fact that it's basically sweater weather everyday is a bonus in my books.

So on this first day of fall I am breathing in the crisp air, embracing a fresh start, and taking the leap into something I've wanted to do for almost 10 years: starting my own blog.

Welcome to Kate Speirs (that's me)! I'm so happy you have found your way to my little piece of the world wide web. I have always wanted a place where I could house my love of all the things (and there are A LOT), and this is it! My hope is that you will find a comfy spot to sit, grab a cup of coffee (in a pretty mug, of course), and follow along as I share all the things with you.

So while I may not be able to send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils, I do believe that actually knowing each other has its charms, and I can't wait to get to know you.


"I like to start my notes to you as if we're already in the middle of a conversation. I pretend that we're the oldest and dearest friends - as opposed to what we actually are, people who don't know each other's names."

  1. I actually have lived in New York in the fall and it is JUST as magical as You've Got Mail depicts. Thanks for giving me a brief moment of reminiscing!
