“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.

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
