This past Saturday Aaron and I joined two of our good friends on a day trip to Yosemite. It was both of our first times going to the park. It was a day full of wandering around seeing the beautiful place. We didn’t have any plans just went and explored a bit. On our way up to Yosemite we were all talking about how places such as the park were amazing ways to see God’s work. How he planned for all the trees and mountains. Even the way the water flows off the top creating a waterfall. It’s so wonderful seeing such a magnificent place knowing God created it.

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” – The Great Gatsby
I think it goes without saying I fell off the blogging planet. But as the quote says when fall happens it’s like you get a fresh perspective. In the fall I feel I tend to feel more motivated. It’s like a the sluggish feelings of summer fade away. October, my favorite month. This October marked my 25th year, and 6 months of marriage. The month was filled with birthday celebrations, a Disneyland trip, painting pumpkins with my nephews, and doing all things fall related. Favorite thing by far was Disneyland for my birthday. I hadn’t been in almost three years. Which is basically a big deal in my life since I used to go once a week when I lived in LA. Thanks to my wonderful husband I got to spend my birthday weekend in the happiest place. We got to spend time with our cool neighbors/ some of our best friends and their kids while there. Carving pumpkins was high up there in my “favorite moments of October” list. Even though Aaron isn’t your average holiday festivities person… he still carved a pumpkin with me. He truly is the best even in all of his grumpy grinch ways.
I think it’s safe to say this season of my life I am learning more about myself than I ever thought possible. Finding out what my weaknesses, faults, and strengths are. It’s a prettying awesome season of life. It’s crazy to think about this time last year Aaron and I had just got engaged and started the wedding planning process. Now, here I am sitting in our living room with my fall scented candle and I feel incredibly happy and at home. Thinking of these upcoming months… it’s the first holiday season as a married couple and I couldn’t be more happy about it.
