“i’m so glad i live in a world where there are octobers.” –l.m. montgomery

you got that right lady!

october is one of my favorite months.
the color changes, the crisp air, pumpkin EVERYTHING!
i just really love autumn.

last weekend j and i went to new bern’s mum fest and wandered around a little there.
there were a lot of vendors and a gross amount of fair food which we weren’t really feeling.
we did a lap of the fest then ate a delicious lunch at one of the restaurants downtown.

after lunch we stopped by the farmer’s market and stocked up on some local produce.
then…we did my favorite fall activity.
we picked pumpkins!


there isn’t an actual pumpkin farm in our area but one of the churches downtown set up a little pumpkin patch.

so we lowered our expectations and brought home 5 perfectly imperfect ones.

lately on instagram...
backyard bonfires with my boys ❤ if you know me, one of the best words to describe me is "busy". i spend my days constantly running from one activity to the next. even though i love all that i'm doing, it's still easy to feel burnt out. especially with the holiday season so quickly approaching, i'm making it my intention so slow down. take a few deep breaths. sit and listen to the rain. treat myself to a coffee at my favorite cafe. get to a yoga class. make time to be still. 
you can't pour from an empty cup. how will you fill yours today? all i want to do is love on him but all he wants to do is hunt down the squirrels 😀
