Sweater Weather

Boy, it feels so good to be back in the game! I unintentionally took a mini break from blogging after a busy weekend and a nasty cold that just wore me out (you already knew that!), but I'm so happy to be here and getting back into my usual daily groove - which includes taking in every moment of this glorious month that I can! Weather wise, October has been a beautiful month with chilly mornings and cold evenings in abundance. October is usually a pretty touchy month in Phoenix - hot some years, cold others - but this year its been the perfect mix of hot and cold that any Phoenician could ask for! Dare I say, sweater weather?

Other than fighting off this nasty cold, Scott and I have been busy with wedding planning, checking out our local pumpkin patch, getting ready to take our engagement photos, and planning a date night for our 7th anniversary this Thursday! Where has the time gone? It's still hard to believe that this will be our last anniversary as a non-married couple - but I am SO excited to start counting January 18th as our (wedding) anniversary.

Lately, I've been all about cozy layers and switching up my regular iced coffee for a cup of hot, black coffee in the morning. I'm still sipping on the delicious pumpkin spice coffee that my folks got us from Dunkin Donuts (shhh! don't tell anybody), and it's become routine to make a cup for my morning commute - which has been all over the place lately - speedy one day, dead stop traffic the next. At least I have my hot coffee and talk radio to keep me warm and occupied!

Today Scott and I sent off our first batch of Save The Date postcards! It felt a little surreal to be slipping them into the mailbox. Next on our to-do list - take engagement photos this weekend with our sweet photographer and friend, Miss Sarah Rhodes of Arrow & Apple!

With our anniversary just days away, I've been doing a lot of thinking about how much we've grown as people, and grown as a couple over the last seven years. Every day I feel so loved and cherished by this sweet man, and I feel so blessed that come January he'll officially be my husband. He truly has the biggest heart, and is always willing to lend a helping hand. I couldn't have asked for a better partner and lover in life. John Scott, I'll forever be thankful for you and your sweet soul.
