Falling for fall

Change. Change is good. Fall is good too.

I am a firm believer in taking advantage of every season & every holiday. I love change (ask JD. One of my most famously overused lines is, "I just want to change it up a bit.") so when a new season begins to show itself I quickly, maybe too quickly, jump in. Like wearing scarves even though it's still 80 degrees, just because it's September and to me September screams fall (although the weather would say otherwise). 

 We took to the outdoors to enjoy fall so far and it hasn't disappointed. 

Liberty Lake with Char & Greenfields with Hoopes and Michelle (and ADORABLE baby Finn).

Keep your eye on the prize Char...eye on the prize.
(look closely)
They're so patient when I want to take pictures. 
 The most to-die-for pumpkin donuts. I waited in a 40 minute line for this bag of mouthwatering deliciousness and it was worth every minute (although while waiting I was starting to doubt. As soon as that sugary pumpkin goodness hit my tongue though the heat and the wait left my mind & I didn't care at all).

September 30th.

One of the happiest days of the year.

JD loves his birthday & is very open about that love. It's his favorite holiday and honestly, I'm fine with that because I love planning and getting everything ready for it. We had such a fun day and luckily it landed on a Tuesday so I didn't have work & he was done with class at 11. Left the rest of the day to celebrate. 

26 never looked so fine.

We woke up & ate monkey bread (practically a dessert) for breakfast and watched some of Disney nature's Oceans (yes, we are children & proud of it). JD went to school, then I picked him up and we headed over to Coeur d'Alene for a trail run, gorgeous scenery, and a Hudson $2 burger (if you're ever in Coeur d'Alene, eat a Hudson burger. It's delicious. Reminds me of an Oakley rodeo shack burger and anyone who's eaten one of those knows the deliciousness packed inside that bun.) 

We got back, took a nap (yessssss) and got ready to go to dinner with Ty & Nat at Fire Artisan Pizza downtown. 

All in all, it was an amazing day celebrating an amazing human being.
I love this man more than he will every understand.
