Pumpkin Patch

Guys, it is already the middle of my most favorite month of the year! I love October so much. Its well and truly autumn, we're well in the swing of school, our anniversary is this month, and the foods we eat this time of year are my favorite. We celebrated all that by hitting up a pumpkin patch with some friends last weekend. 




Anderson Farms is almost an hour away, but it was definitely worth the drive! Huge pumpkin fields for picking, a fun little General Store...



 And a pretty awesome corn maze!
 
 

They also had a paint gun zombie hunt, and terror in the corn! 


 It was a really fun day, and we came home with 3 huge awesome pumpkins.



Love celebrating this time of year!!

12/18


Tomorrow Trav and I will jump out of a plane together, again, to celebrate being married for 12 years and together for 18. I can't even explain how fast the time has gone. The old saying is true, the days might be long sometimes, but the years are so short.


 

We have officially been together for half of my life now. Moving forward, every new day is one day more that I have been with Travis then I have been without him. That is so mind blowing!




It hasn't always been easy, but I am so amazingly appreciative of the life we have built together. Travis, you are truly one of my best friends, and I'm so grateful for you.

Wordless Wednesday {Favorite Hair Yet}



 I'm so in love with this color and cut... this combo of colors!


 Daniel really stepped it up this time... (the man himself:)

Dear Evan Hansen

The other week Trav got a call on Monday, asking if we would be up for seeing a show the next night! Some tickets were available for a show we'd been asking about and we jumped on them!


I scrambled around but found a babysitter and a sub for my class, and our friend James... the one who originally turned us on to this show, making sure he could come too! We headed into the city to grab some yummy food first at Stout Street Social, before heading over to the theater for the show.


It was absolutely phenomenal. I knew nothing about Dear Evan Hansen before heading in, but it blew me away. It was a nuanced look at suicide, teenage life, and how one wrong choice can completely change the direction of your life: for good and bad.


I'm so glad we went.



It was sweet and touching, and at least one of the songs is now in my regular rotation. So glad James asked us about this show!

Auditions

I had an audition with a new studio last Wednesday, to be added to their teacher list. It doesn't matter how long you teach, auditions are just weird and nerve-racking!



It was especially so because this is a studio that I take classes at, and I really wanted to bring my best!

Thankfully it went so well. 





Auditions and interviews are such a strange thing. I am 100% confident in my teaching, this is my calling! But an audition, putting myself out there for the purpose of judging, whoo boy, that has the ability to churn up every old insecurity I have. (And to literally throw me into tears on @soozieak shoulder! 😂) That said, I know this is my calling because the second I get up there and start to teach, all of that disappears. I’m in the moment, present on the mat, and the calm comes. ✨
All of this to say that I am so excited to be able to call myself the newest teacher at @oneyogadenver - an absolutely gorgeous and love filled studio in the DTC. The have such an amazing group of phenomenal teachers, and I am truly honored to join them!! ✨
Thank you to all who sent me love and good vibes.

I can't wait to start cultivating new relationships at this beautiful studio! How luck I am to be able to do what I love.

Mabon


Another Autumn rolls around, and another beautiful Mabon celebrated.


The menu this year was: Acorn Squash and Sweet Potato soup with a cashew-sage crumble


Garlic Smash Roasted Potatoes, and grilled Corn on the Cob


Pumpkin Bread and Nuts, with Apple Cider to drink.

Root Veggies and Apples to celebrate the harvest time.


Gwen and Trav took care of the table set up and decoration, while I cooked. Trav also grilled the corn. It was a nice team effort, appropriate for the season, as well as necessary since we held our feast on the day we returned from out East Coast trip!

The best part, we arrived back to Colorado with Autumn having also arrived. It was a wonderful celebration.

Happy Mabon all!!
