david's busy season is upon us, and has been since september i suppose. i don't want to get into it but he works 15 hours a day 6 days a week usually. SCA-REW DAT. but oddly our marriage is still rock solid and we aren't at each others throats and falling into passive aggression to get out point across. so this is what 9 years of marriage has brought us! i love that man. i was reminded of this when recently our 10-years-since-he-proposed occurred. i remember so vividly wanting to marry him since i was 15 years old and cried and of course said an ecstatic yes but shortly thereafter felt a sharp thumping in my chest that told me i would ruin his life with my baggage. gosh i was young and egotistical to think that my issues could RUIN someones life. if anything it's made us stronger oddly enough.
i've been laid up in bed with a crick in my neck for two days. yesterday i was literally in bed so long that i read an entire book! ice pack + aleve are mah friends. olive laid in bed with me and fed me ice cream. she said "just click your teeth and open your mouth and i'll know you want a bite!" (because i couldn't turn my head to retrieve a bite from her). good grief my children are sweetums.
i am actively planning my 30th birthday party in december. we've rented a party space, got the menu from the catered nailed down, and i am of course trying to plan the perfect party mix. i am waffling on what direction to take it. "royal tenenbaums threw a party" type music of "upbeat shake your hips" sound. decisions, decisions. the menu is SO ME so far. junk food + comfort food ahoy!
fall is here and it is beautiful! warm but crisp and the leaves are of course so lovely in ohio. this is the peak week here and i just want to take pictures of everything! im not much of a photographer but yes, so much beauty in every corner of my eye. we went to a pumpkin patch + apple picking recently. we now have 40 lbs of delicious apples (melrose + suncrisp) that we crunch on all day every day. some jerk vandalized one of our pumpkins by spray painting it. WHO DOES THAT?
halloween costume! augustine is going to be indiana jones, his new obsession.
beautiful sunrise or sunset. i can't remember
i mean shut up with those beautiful lashes!
snippet of our fridge. life is good
olive has two major loves right now. her hoard of little toy elephants and her dollhouse
