It's Friday! I have worked odd hours for the past three years, and it is such a nice feeling to be able to say it is Friday! I have really been enjoying have real weekends this month and try to fit as much fun and festivities into them to make up for lost time. I am looking forward to enjoying the whole weekend with friends and family. We have some Sunday plans to get massages and then enjoy football. Tomorrow will be hopefully spending time with a friend. Tonight we are planning on going through a "haunted" corn maze with friends.

Happy Friday to everyone and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

October 17, 2010 was a perfect sunny, crisp, fall day. Weather in the Pacific Northwest can be unpredictable at best, and this was an absolutely stunning autumn day. There was a chill in the air, and the sun was shining brightly through the changing leaves. 10.17.2010 was the day we dressed up, stood in front of family and friends to say our vows, and celebrated with those we love as husband and wife. We were married in a historic barn that was a perfect setting for our fall nuptials. We decorated the rustic setting with candles, mason jars full of hydrangeas, and paper lanterns. We enjoyed delicious food, a tower of freshly made cupcakes, and capped the night with a candy bar.

I can hardly believe we have been married for a year! I am so glad we can celebrate our marriage and our commitment to each other each year in October. October is the month of harmony you know! Also, it is both of our favorite time of the year. Full of corn mazes, pumpkins, turning leaves, festive lattes, gorgeous NW weather, and the beginning of the holiday season. This year marks our 7th Halloween together. We won't be dressing up this year, but it is fun to look back on our wedding attire from last year.
