Reading: I just finished this i know: notes on unraveling the heart. Loved this book! Over the last few weeks in counseling, M has been talking to me about vulnerability, letting go, & understanding myself better. I am really excited to be on this journey & I think that is one reason why I love this book so much. 

Watching: Parenthood. I didn't find this show until late last season but after watching the first episode I fell in love with it. Awesome show. Definitely my favorite right now :) 

Listening to: David Nail. Up until a few months ago, the only songs I knew by him were the few played on the radio. Once I started listening to his albums I was hooked. His voice is gorgeous & his music has really touched me. I can't get enough of it! 

Thinking about: Expanding our family. I am trying to stay positive & I have hope that it will happen soon. I should have the test results back within a few days from the Day 3 testing so I guess we wait for that & go from there. I am also considering giving acupuncture a try, getting back on those fertility vitamins, & starting that yoga for fertility DVD again. I have been a little skeptical of things like this lately but I guess it's worth a shot at this point, right? 

Loving: Journaling. I kept a journal when I was younger but for some reason I stopped in my early twenties. Last year, when Josh & I went to the Virgin Islands, I wrote every day we were there. That was the first time I wrote like that in years. I started journaling on my computer for a while, but a few months ago M talked to me about how great it feels to put that pen to the paper & just write. And that's exactly what I have been doing. 

Looking forward to: Fall festivals, apple pies baking in the oven, decorating pumpkins, toasting marshmallows over our fire pit, & fall crafts with Kennadie. Snuggling under a warm blanket on the couch on a chilly night watching a movie with Josh & Kennadie. And seeing her smile, the excitement in her eyes, & her dressed up like a princess on Halloween night. I love October :) 

Making me happy: Having my sister home. She has been traveling a ton over the last few years, so hopefully she will be home for a while now. It's nice to have her here even for the simple things like walking with our dogs or running errands. I am so happy she's home. Plus it's way too quiet without her :)

We don't have any apples this year. Nope.We had a huge frost that hit us in April and killed the blooms. Most farms only had 50% production and they had to pick the apples and use it for juice, sauce etc because they were
