Riding my bike through the cemetery to class this morning while Mindy Gledhill sang sweet melodies in my ears. THANK goodness for scarves, due to a little bitter morning wind.
I made frosted pumpkin chocolate chip cookies last night-- it was a perfect mid-morning snack.
Wednesdays, middle of the week, but closer to Friday than Tuesday (obviously). That's always a good feeling, because I love love love weekends.
General Conference is coming up. Not only do I enjoy having an excuse to stay in my PJ's all morning long for TWO days, but I am so excited to hear the leaders of our church counsel us. They always seem to know just how to speak to my heart.
Fall makes me happy. Wearing cardigans, tights, and scarves. The changing of the beautiful leaves-- side note-- I took some beautiful bridals (check the blog to see them soon!) this last weekend up Hobble Creek Canyon. It was SO beautiful. There were still some greens and some yellows and reds and oranges. I love fall! I love the brisk but still warm weather. I love filling my house with autumn wallflowers from Bath and Body. I love football season, not as much as Tyson, but still love it. I have recently discovered this love for Halloween I have! I just feel so happy in the fall!
Having a great husband who never fails to:
-- Insert my name (usually "Katers") in most songs he sings, which is a lot. :)
-- Wash a bowl for me every morning for my cereal if there isn't one clean.
-- Makes my day, especially with surprise post-it notes and run-in's on the campus loop bus.
-- Manages to tell me I'm beautiful in some way or another every single day. Bless him for that.
I love life! I don't know where we will be after December, but I know I'll be with my best friend living a good life-- and I can't help but be grateful for that. :)
A few photos from our first married summer together. :)
You know when you go to an Agricultural School when:
There's a horse, four little goats and three of the CUTEST piglets EVER hanging out on campus.
But really. Now I really want a piglet, they are so cute! I've wanted one for a while, actually. I just want to feed it with a bottle and adore it's cuteness. Nothing more. (Unlike what my husband suggested we do with a pig... you can only guess).
Currently on my wants list as well include:
* School cancelled for the rest of week... or of my life. Just give me a degree now and let's call it good.
* A plane ticket to Arkansas that leaves tomorrow. I miss my babe, William A.!
* The funds to buy us a new car. Oh and me a new camera. Oh and Tyson a new laptop. Oh and pay all our bills. Oh wait. Keep dreaming.... one at a time. :)
And maybe more things, but I won't be so needy and wanty anymore. :)
There is NOTHING more comforting than that thought.
Knowing that no matter what happens in the next few years of our lives, we will not be alone.
So much uncertainty lies on our shoulders and I can't help but be a little bit excited. Nervous? Yes. A little scared out of our minds? Yes. But it's exciting that we are just beginning our journey! We have our whole marriage and lives ahead of us, and now is the time to make the right choices and habits to get us to that eternity. That's a scary thought, but so glad knowing I'm not having to do it all alone!
Six things we love about being married:
1. Coming home to each other every day and spending time together (even if we're reading textbooks or watching sports).
2. Not having to say goodbye every night.
3. Playing "house", but knowing it's real life.
4. I cook, he cleans. It's a deal. :)
5. Creating a little "home" together.
6. Helping each other achieve our dreams (individual and together).
Marriage is our favorite. That's all there is to it! :)
