Life Lately

Life has been pretty busy lately! I often shy away from using the word ‘busy’ to describe my routine and schedule, but the past few weeks have been quite full between preliminary wedding planning, the election, end-of-the-year teeth/eye/etc exams, a flat tire, church activities, babysitting, and seeking out God’s direction for my next season of work. Amidst all that ‘busyness’ there have been so many sweet moments and snippets to share!


The start of November meant the release of Target’s holiday products. I am eager for all things Christmas as soon as the leaves begin to fall of the trees, but Dillon prefers to savor the festivities until Thanksgiving has had its fair share of holiday recognition. Thankfully, he went along with my enjoyment and accompanied me to look at the Christmas decor (and smell the winter candles!) after a dinner out a few weeks ago.


The first Saturday of this month brought about our church’s fall festival. It was such a fun afternoon to gather with our family and church community for the event. I snapped this picture of my dad while we took my little pint-sized relatives on the hayride.


Election day came and went as quickly as the lines at my poll location. There is usually a long line with a substantial wait time, but this year they really moved things along with less than ten minutes spent in line. Sadly, there were no stickers in my town. I even asked.


Southern Weddings V9 officially launched on November 10th! I was excited to receive my pre-order a full six days before the official release. The content is absolutely stunning and the pages are filled with inspiration to guide Dillon and I as we plan our wedding. Well done, ladies!


Last weekend, my mom and I went to visit the horses at Dillon’s home. Horses are my mom’s absolute favorite and she was loving every bit of our time there. I made a little goat friend while she helped Dillon with some of the horse care.


After we took care of the horses, Dillon and I went out to dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants, High Street Farmhouse in Goffstown. After we got our fill of fresh-baked bread (and my go-to item of chicken pot pie), we began our wedding registry at Target. Needless to say, it became more of a ‘scan the pretty things’ outing as we realized we should have more of a game plan of actual needed items on our next trip.


Last week my mom and I went to visit my grandparents on Monday and I love this picture my mom snapped of me listening to my Tappy. He was really excited about all those leaves on the ground, as he said they’d fallen like snow that morning when the frost melted away. Fall felt longer this year than most because of how much foliage held onto the trees into November and I am thankful for that!
