Here & There

In the three months since my last post, we've been just a tiny bit busy. In fact, this is the first weekend in months that we have had a completely free weekend at home. We are soaking it in. Today has been filled with breakfast as a family (even tried a new recipe), a walk to the park, and lots of reading - we pulled out the Christmas books from the attic. I wish this was the start of a slower paced season, but we're ramping up for more travel and busyness. Thankfully it's the good kind.

In August we ended the month with trips to the local pool, splash pad, and zoo. Todd and I saw Matt Nathanson in concert, and we all traveled to North Carolina to spend Labor Day weekend with my mom.

In September Crosbi started preschool. She goes two days a week to a local church and as anxious as I was to enroll her, it has been the best thing for our family. I get time to focus on work and she gets to play with her new friends. Hearing her sing songs she has learned during the week is icing on the cake. Is there anything cuter than hearing a toddler sing Jesus Loves Me? Nope.

We celebrated Todd's 30th birthday and took a much needed family vacation to Captiva, Florida.

In October I turned 31 - meaning I can officially say I'm in my thirties. Ouch. Crosbi and I traveled to Colorado to see my bestie Jenn and her boys. My family visited for the annual Leiper's Fork Chili Cookoff. We wrapped up our first CSA season at the farm, and Crosbi was the cutest Titans Cheerleader you've ever seen for Halloween.

If you follow me on Instagram, I apologize for the repeat information, but I know many of my family members don't (hi Aunt Terry!) so I wanted to be sure to document our adventures here as well.

I'll be back soon with a birthday post. Crosbi turns two in less than two weeks! Excuse me while I go pretend this is not happening.
