Life is good, you know that?

The weather is beautiful... I loved summer and I love that fall is coming up. I got to watch my brother, Griffin, graduate college and play in his LAST year of baseball. I got to hang out with my youngest brother, Chase.... watching him play his first year of HIGH SCHOOL baseball and having him come stay with us for a few days. I've had the privilege of taking SO many awesome people's photos this summer... And booking more into the fall! I love love love love it! Life is good! I get to do what I love with my life... Having my own business, staying home with Sienna! Aaron got a promotion and we are moving soon- up towards our parents and close friends/family. I planned our little girls 1st birthday party and it went great (minus my migraine).  Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte is back for the fall season. We have been scouring houses looking for what will be our new HOME! I've started getting more and more orders again for the fall and winter months of my crochet hats... 6 in one day actually! I better restock my yarn stash. I had a garage sale with one of my best friends, which was a huge success. Speaking of garage sales... I spent my summer Fridays and Saturday mornings with Sienna (and sometimes Bentley) getting Starbucks, a caramel roll from the bakery, cruising around town to scope out all the good deals. I was in HEAVEN doing this all day... So fun!  Pretty soon I'll start cooking my cheeseburger soup, set out my fall decorations, and watch Hawkeye games with Aaron. Ill get to start filling a new house with all of our things.... Go out on more (any?!) dates since we will have family to babysit, plan our winter vaca with friends to Jamaica, and enjoy the cooler weather. As I type it's 99 out today! 

So... Life is good. There's so much more to appreciate and recall from the summer and to look forward to for the fall. But, for now... Aaron was home a day early this week, we ate out favorite pizza (Zeno's) for dinner, prepared for our tailgating in Iowa City trip tomorrow, Sienna is asleep in my arms as I type, and Breaking Bad is on our TV while an amazing smelling candle is burning. I'm surrounded by a man and baby that love me... A dog who is my best buddy... Parents and siblings that are great... Friends that I'm becoming closer and closer to as we get older.... And a "job" that's all mine. 

Life is good!
