Yesterday was a long day. And I mean loooong. I only worked from 7:30 until 5:00 but it was so busy I didn't get a lunch break, stood all day long, and literally realized at 4:30 that I hadn't gone to the bathroom yet. And yet at 5:00 last night, at the end of the longest day in awhile, I couldn't wait to sit down with my computer.
I couldn't wait to read comments. To read all the posts from yesterday's BMTA link-up. To read e-mails from bloggers who have turned into real-life friends. I couldn't wait to write.
Blogging is awesome for so many reasons. So so so many that I couldn't possibly ever list them out. And one of things that keeps me coming back here everyday is you. Your blog. Your comments. Your e-mails. Your friendship. I am so thankful for all of you. At the end of yesterday, when all I wanted to do was connect with all of you, I promised myself that I would tell you. I would tell you so that you realize how you can positively impact a person's life just by being yourself. So thank you. Because community and being yourself is what blogging's all about, isn't it?
Now moving on to why we're here today...
Smelling :: Pumpkin everything. Not literally, because all my pumpkin candles (and pumpkin decor) are either packed or with Parker in Fargo. But I'm imagining smelling pumpkin everything -- 'tis the season.
Loving :: Sweaters, and the anticipation of boots and scarves. Good ol' NoDak had a few 80+ degree days last week and, I'm not going to lie, I've loved the cooler weather the past few days. I can't help it. This girl loves the beginning of every season.
Planning :: My move so I can live in the same space as my husband again- which happens in 6ish weeks. But who's counting?
Baking :: Nothing, because all of our baking supplies are packed up! Which bums me out because this is total baking season. Although, if our stuff wasn't packed right now, I'd be baking peanut butter banana bread -- one of our fall faves.
Celebrating :: Parker's new job. I am so excited for him and I truly believe that marriage is all about supporting your spouse's hopes and dreams. I'm just so happy to see him excited, motivated, and dreaming again :)
