CELEBRATING: Kevin asked me to be his girlfriend in September eight years ago, so we’re celebrating all of our adventures since then. He even surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers!

WATCHING: Lately, I’ve been watching YouTube videos more than anything else. I tend to listen to or watch crafty videos while I’m working on my own projects, so some of my current favorites are Cori at The Reset Girl, Ali Brown, Courtney at Little Raven Ink, and Adele at Inkie Quill. There are also a couple of new music videos I’ve watched recently: P!NK and Taylor Swift.

WELCOMING: It feels like the weather in mid-Missouri has really cooled down, so we’ve been welcoming the nice fall-like weather with more outdoor activities. Bring on the PSL, leaves, layered clothes, and football games.

PREPARING: College football and tailgating generally takes up a lot of our falls (in the best way possible) and this year we are adding some basketball to the mix starting in November. We’re preparing and hoping for a great sports season here!

PHOTOGRAPHING: Labor day weekend really helped me get back behind my camera. Each year over Labor Day weekend, I shoot our family golf tournament and then I also brought my camera along to a church picnic that we attended. I always notice that the more I use my camera, the more I want to continue using it.


Today I’m joining Anne, at In Residence, for a ‘Currently’ linkup that she hosts on the first Wednesday of every month. Be sure to pop over and see what everyone else is up to!

Thrive | September Goals

September is here and it's bringing all of my favorite things - football games, nicer weather, and all of the pumpkin flavored things. For the first time this year, August actually felt the length it was meant to be. We had a lot going on including multiple weekends...

Quarterly Book Report

My goal for the year was 15 books, but based on the way I'm powering through them this year, I'm going to have to up that for 2018. I'm sharing more about what I'm reading because it's one of my favorite posts on other blogs. I've found the best way to keep my nose in...

73 Questions at 26

(source) I found this fun little quiz that a couple blog friends have shared and I thought it would be the perfect thing to do on my birthday. This originally stemmed from Vogue's 73 questions game that they were doing with celebrities.     What are you most...

The Garden + My Journal

In all of the posts that I've shared about our house, I have never shared the best part: we live next to our best friends. In all honesty, it's just as epic as it sounds and I'm dreading the day that we don't live 15 steps from front door to front door. Earlier this...

Coffee Date

If we were on a coffee date, we would grab our drinks and head to a park. It's cooled down considerably in the last week or two, so it's only natural to want to spend as much time outside as possible. We have some spectacular parks so we'd go to the one we haven't...

Little Letters

Dear Friday, why do you wait so long to come back around? I’d really prefer to see you more often. Dear Kevin, thank you for a yummy lunch date and a million laughs this week. You spoil me. Dear letterboard hashtag on Instagram, thanks for the sweet and witty...

Thrive | August Goals

August, august. I'm so thankful for the changing of the month and the cooler weather that August seems to be bringing us so far. I've always been a lover of the summer, but I have to say that I'm seriously looking forward to the fall this year. As we gear up for fall,...

SNACKING: I recently stopped eating gluten, most dairy, high fructose corn syrup and a few other things, so my snacking has really turned into anything I can find that doesn't include those things. It's definitely not a bad thing, but dang, it's not easy!...

I Want You to Know

I want you to know that if it was easy, everyone would do it. I want you to know that there's happiness in the scenic route. I want you to know that you are strong. I want you to know that you don't always need a plan, sometimes you can wing it. I want you to know...
