It's been a while.

Sometimes I wish life would just slow down, but then I realized it's not going to (except for last weekend when we set the clocks back. That was awesome.) so I guess I just need to catch up with life. 

Here's my attempt at catching up on the last few months (brace yourself for LOTS of pictures)
We soaked up the last bits of summer by watching the sun set over the lake,
 I read this book which quickly became one of my favorites,
 I frequently felt like I was in the Valley of Ashes and Dr. T.J. Eckleburg was watching me on my long commute (name that book),
 We ventured up to Memphis for a wedding and got to spend time with sweet family,
watched sunlight through the window beam on our new kitchen table,

 went to the Arkansas state fair,

 had lunch with Caroline during my brief stop in Alabama (new favorite brunch spot in Bham!)
took photos of this girl for my jewelry line (check it out here)
 Went on a road trip to the beach,

 where my mom locked us out of the house (looks like she's broken into places a time or two),
and we didn't want to leave the beautiful October beach.
Back in Arkansas, it decided to turn cold. We crashed a local college and went to a Dave Barnes concert, 
 I got this lovely card in the mail (so much excitement!!),
 went to a pumpkin patch where I wanted this baby pumpkin (why is everything always cuter in miniature form?)
 and succeeded in the muddy maze with this guy.
 Then we headed up to Fayetteville on the most beautiful drive,
where the boys decided to ride a hog,
 and the Tigers decided to beat the hogs!
 We were so thankful to have sweet friends stay with us for the weekend. 

Life in the natural state is always an adventure!
