Happy October!

Oh me oh my is Fall my most favorite time of year. I look forward to it all year round... the cooler temps, the warmer clothes, the Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, the changing colors, the crunchy leaves, the crisper air, the gorgeous colors in the sky.

During Summer months, when most people are out and about enjoying the heat and less clothing, I tend to stay more indoors. I hate the heat. I hate the humidity. I hate the less clothing. So while most people I know also love Fall, my love for it goes beyond the normal love. I love it because it gets me outside more in the beautiful cooler fresh air. And man, does that do a body and mind good.

Saturday we went to gymnastics (indoors), walked to lunch, came home and napped, and went out to the burbs to get our pictures taken at a farm I never even knew existed.

The farm and area were absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait to see the rest of the photos, nor can't I wait to go back to this farm again.

Lovie did a great job getting her picture taken; it didn't hurt that she had the promise of seeing animals like horse and cow. In fact, this morning, she told her teacher that she got to see a cow pee.

The best thing about this hidden gem of a place is that it was so empty. So serene. So perfect for a beautiful weekend visit.

Sunday we hung out in the morning before Lovie and I took a walk (she rode her bike) to the river to see if we could see some ducks. Luckily another woman and child were feeding some ducks and shared some of the feed with Lovie. After that, we went over the bridge that crosses the river and looks over the river on one side, and the street we live on on the other side. We may live in the city, but living this close to a river is pretty badass. It's stunning this time of year with all the trees changing colors.

Ah, Life is good... Happy Fall!
