FALLing in love.

Offically, finally... fall is here! I don't have any new pictures to share.. not that we haven't taken any, but that I haven't had time to upload them. We have had an amazing and very busy few weeks.
We camped.
We went to Nashville.
I had Tri Delta recruitment
We went to the river.
Jason got a new job that will bring him HOME!
We spent a lot of time with friends and family and continue to feel more thankful each day. We have surrounded ourselves with amazing people. People who love us and who love our little girl.

We just got back from Nashville this week. I belong in Nashville. Clearly I was born in the wrong part of the country. I love southern values. I love downtown Nashville. I love that there are so many colleges and universities. I love the "berbs" of Nashville. I love that the titans are there...and that makes Jason happy. We had an amazing time with our friends the Klans. Honestly, Emery cried for 2 days after we left. I think she was mourning the city. But, my ENTIRE family is here, so here we stay. For now. I would love to end up there.

our fall is already filling up. BBQs with friends, pumpking patch, Oktoberfest... and a spa day for me! I am just looking forward to fall weather, fall snuggles, and fall fashion!

Another summer has ended.

Labor day has come and gone. I have to admit that I love fall weather, fall clothes, and fall snuggles, but I am sad to see summer end. We had an exceptional and busy summer. It was complete with swim lessons, camping, and lots of family time. I think after a very busy spring we did our best to make time for family. It included lots of lazy Sundays and family nights in. I am so thankful for Jason and Emery. After a bad day, Emery kisses can make the world go round again. I am truly blessed with love and laughter in my home.
But, fall is here again, and with it is a hussle and bussle and we slide into the holidays. I am well over half done with my holiday shopping. We made our annual labor day trip to the river with my family. CSULB is back to school, and with it my busy Tri Delta advisory duties are in full swing. Recruitment is this weekend, and the following weekend we are off to TN to visit our very dear friends, the Klahn's. Our fall is already filling up with Mommy & Daddy Oktoberfest with friends, Pumpking Picking, and a BBQ. I am also excited to check wine tasting off my 30 by 30 list when we go to Nashville. What else will I be able to check off this fall? Any suggestions?

I have shared below our most updated family photo. We intended to have photos of Emery and my niece, Madison, taken for Grandparents day. But, we decided to take a few family shots as well. They were taken at mother's beach in LB by
