In case you were wondering...
Beth Ann and I are your typical - leaf crunching, scarf hoarding, PSL drinking, cozy knit sweater collecting - fall lovers! We are thrilled that our favorite season is SO SOON! And we have a lot of fun things coming your way, so stay tuned!
To kick off this fall season, Luis, Aria and I hopped in the car Sunday evening and cruised down some winding back roads to meet our close friends. We drove up the last little unmarked road and arrived at this sweet farm that was tucked away from all of the city life. We loved that the hidden location didn't keep people from coming out to enjoy some good community.
Unfortunately, the sun didn't quite get the memo about the fall weather on the way, and it was much hotter than we had anticipated. All seven of us (kids included) squeezed under some shade and got caught up on each other's lives. Luis and I switched off watching Aria (who is now eleven months!) while trying not to inhale the delicious home-cooked BBQ too fast. Our friend's girls ate and immediately dashed off to make new friends. My friend Nikki and I gravitated (like usual) towards the silly situations we've recently found ourselves in as laughter ensued, while her husband Joe and Luis were already knee deep into discussing theology and sharing testimonies of God's goodness.
Once we finished eating and were all nice and sticky from the BBQ, and from the heat, it was time for some fall - family photos. Nikki, as if responsible for the sun, kept apologizing for the heat as she snapped each picture. One of my favorite things that she does when she takes family pictures is how she pulls out our goofy selves and we just end up laughing in all of the shots. She is amazing at what she does! Then, just like that within 15 minutes, she captured the most precious memories. It was the best way to start our week and to begin our autumn nights. Here are some of our favorite pictures, and my favorite new watch included!
