It's hard to believe September will be over in just 2 days.

We had a wonderfully successful bonfire last Friday, full of pumpkin carving, mulled hot cranberry orange cider, cheeseballs and crackers as well as the wonderfully delicious pumpkin cheesecake that I will be promptly baking again. 

We've really been blessed with an awesome and hilarious group of friends! We have also been venturing out into the realm of bible study and discipleship with said friends and the encouragement has been abounding. I live for Tuesdays every week and relish the study-time in the word. 

Yesterday we discussed the importance of testimony and remembering the works of God in our lives, and funnily enough I got a call from the local christian-tv station and we discussed this same topic this morning live! It was an exciting, albeit, nervous experience, and I'm praying that the viewers were extremely blessed. I walked away encouraged, miraculously (since it was morning, which tends to ruin my day) 

Hoping that you all are taking full advantage of your September before it runs dry!
Crunch a leaf.

Oh yeah! I cut my hair.

I've had the same haircut for 3 years due to one bad, slightly short haircut, and I thought it was time for a change. I didn't want to be stuck in a rut, I mean, I'm young! It's the time to try those wild things right?

A successful wacation.

Well, we're back from our 16-day honeymoon excursion. It was fantabulous. Jesse and I kept a log of all the things that happened, plus all the many blessings and way the Lord took care of us. It was astounding. We have a wonderful Papa. 

On another note, I greatly missed cooking! It is such a delight! I wandered the aisles today, finding various new things to try in salads, and found the yummiest, olive oil-basil-sundried tomato- vinaigrette. I can't wait to have it for lunch tomorrow! Tonight I am making a vegetable couscous salad with grilled chicken. Yum!

Oh! And another blessing for today! We get to meet a brand new baby! Our friends had a baby while we were gone, and we get to meet little Riley Mae today. woohoo! 

Life is grand.
