fall lovin'

I love October...a month which routine sets in after a crazy September, football games, cooler weather, and this year....visitors! This is going to be a great month, indeed.

I had the past weekend off, which was amazing. Saturday we went to the farmer's market, went hiking at Umstead, went on a few walks, went out for lunch and crossed off numerous items on the infamous "to-do" list. It was an accomplished day, and it felt great.

Today, Jim's Aunt Pat & Uncle Bob were passing through Raleigh, so we spent the day showing them around the area. We visited our new house, Jim's school, my hospital, Duke's gardens and chapel. They are some of our favorite people & it was a great to spend time with them. We miss our families greatly and truly treasure our times together. It was great to have them visit our stomping grounds, too!

Kristin, Jim's sister will be here in less than two weeks! We're counting down the days. We become homeowners on the 19th [crazy!] and then we'll join Rick, Julie and Evan in the mountains on the 21st.

ah, yes.
life is great. and crazy. and busy.
and we are so blessed.

Looking with great excitement to the weeks ahead!

PS. i love all the random text messages/emails I have received from people because they know how much i love fall....l love knowing that when you light a fall scented candle or snuggle up with a blanket and sip on apple cider-you think of me. you make my day.
