Oh October. Already? This year is surely getting by. Seems like just a few short months ago we met, and now I’m staring you in the face again a year older not sure the wiser but certainly thankful to see you again.

I went to a wedding Saturday evening. I love weddings. Since our 9th anniversary this past September I’ve really been toying with the idea of doing something epic for our 10th anniversary since we got married at the courthouse.

Until then.

….because I forgot to get her legit soccer socks. She’ll be ready by Saturday. Who knew these knee high Doc McStuffins socks that she drug all around Ross  would come in handy.

Photography is a huge hobby of mine. I manage to capture photos for the blog but I haven’t really taken out the time any more to really learn and get better. I’ve been hurried and now that things are starting to slow down again I am longing for days where I go back to focusing on what really matters. What really matters is daily moments spent with my family and children, doing the things I like to do and being comfortable in this life that we are living.
