Saturday Thankfulness

Welcome to the first weekend of fall!

I've had a bit of a rough week emotionally so I thought I'd make a list of some of the things I'm most thankful for on this cloudy Saturday.

1. The fact that the foliage is finally starting to change.  I took these pictures around our house.  My favorites are the red leaves but most of those around our house are yellow.


2. Not having to wake up to an alarm.  On mornings where we don't have to wake up at a given time Rob and I usually hang out in bed for an extra 20 minutes or so just talking to each other and dozing.  Most times I'll grab my iPad and read him excerpts from blog posts that make me smile.
3. Taking a mid-morning nap.  Just because.
4. Going for a morning walk at the local field so Cypress can take a swim in the river.
5. Grocery shopping with Rob.  I know it's silly but it's one of my favorite times together.  Sometimes if we're alone in an aisle I'll dance to whatever goofy-ass song or sashay like I'm on a catwalk.  Makes me smile. Plus we went so that we could make a new recipe, which I'll be sharing tomorrow!
6. Watching Rob play "slobber ball" with Cypress in the yard.  Basically he throws the ball, she catches it, he hunts her down and gets it back to throw it again.  He also chased her around with a dead sunflower. Oh, and he was shirtless again so you know, there's that.  I got some lovely action shots:


What are you doing this weekend?


  1. beautiful fall colors! living in the evergreen state sucks a little; not a lot of trees change color. plus the wind storm we had yesterday blew a lot of the leaves right out of the trees, BLAH.

    this weekend, i'm stuffing my face with honeycrisp apples.

    hell yes, fall doesn't suck as much as i thought it did.

  2. I can't remember the last time we were able to wake up on our own, without an alarm. Maybe I'll get to see what that's like when we go on our honeymoon. :-)

  3. We enjoyed a nice, but rainy walk in the woods yesterday. It was really happy and magical:)

    Slobber ball looks like fun :)

    Have a happy sunday

  4. oh man! i live for fall colors. we will go on drives where the trees cover both sides of the road. i feel like i'm driving into a tunnel of autumn. i love it.
