7 Months and Growing

I have a fabulous friend in my ward who was nice enough to take Masen's photos for me. She is one of those people who is naturally good at everything she does, including photography. I think the pictures turned out adorable. Thanks so much Molly! Some of the pictures look a little grainy because I Photoshopped them, then had to lower the resolution so blogger would upload them.

I Miss Fall

These past couple of weeks have just felt a little "off." It was something I couldn't quite put my finger on. One day I finally realized what it is: I am missing fall. When this time of year rolls around I have a natural instinct to put on some jeans and sweaters, cook hearty, warm meals, and go to bed a little earlier. I put my fall decorations up to alleviate the longing a little, but it's hard to get into the mood with 85 degree sunny weather. Hawaii is mostly summer year round, but during the winter months it feels like spring with all the rain. Winter is a season I can definitely live completely without, but I am really missing fall.

After browsing for some fall pictures, and noticing how few I have, I've come to realize that I have taken seasons for granted. When we move back to the mainland I will be sure to stop and appreciate ALL the seasons a bit more. Have a happy fall y'all - because I sure won't!
