Tempe Lake

September has only begun and so far it's turning into a lovely month! I spent the past weekend enjoying the cool weather of Northern Arizona, and now the temperatures in Phoenix are finally starting to cool down! And when I say cool down, I mean it's going to be 103 instead of 116! This girl is truly happy!

Yesterday was such a busy, and productive day. I got up (not so early as planned) and headed to my local Starbucks for my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season, then ran a few random errands, had lunch with my love, went to a meeting later on the in afternoon, and spent some time down by Tempe Town Lake.

I always forget that there is a "beach side" to the lake, so since the weather was nice (read: bearable) and the sunset was looking like it was going to be a beautiful one, Scott and I thought it would be fun to head down to the lake. The views from this side are always gorgeous, and I love watching the light rail as is zooms by right over the lake.

Now that September is here I'm planning out some fun fall activities, dreaming of PSL's and apple cider, and looking forward to the cooler weather. I'm also so excited to celebrate Scott and I's five year anniversary next month. It's crazy to think how fast the time has gone by. We were just teenagers when we met and fell in love!

Since this week has already seem to disappear before my eyes (having a holiday on Monday always messes me up for the week), I'm now going to really lock down and get some serious reading and homework done for my classes. Grad school seems to require so much more reading than my undergraduate studies, and this is definitely something that's going to take some time getting used to. If only I took speed reading in high school like my mom did!
