Fall 2017 marked Stephen and my second anniversary and my first year living in the south.
It had some of the prettiest sunsets I’ve ever seen.
It was the start of my second season watching the Falcons.
And I got a new roommate…
…he’s pretty cute and makes a mean fire.
It was the fall of the first Oktoberfest at the local brewery and the band playing at the amphitheater in town.
It was also the fall we learned the band was going to be uncles! Eva (singer) and Kelley (drummer) are expecting twin girls this spring ❤ ❤
We showed off Atlanta to our Portland houseguest.
Before I jumped on planes myself and went to Minneapolis and Portland.
We drove to Birmingham for possibly the best named early Thanksgiving, “Turkey in the Ham,” a 35+ year family tradition I’m in my second year attending. We were hungry just in time for Thanksgiving with local family I consider myself very fortunate to have found myself a part of.
(I have no other pictures because I was either too busy stuffing my face, talking, or holding the cutest baby imaginable.)
It was the fall of knitting a blanket larger than I intended while audio-booking the Maisie Dobbs series and picking up pumpkins at my favorite little church.
There were trivia nights and candlelight. Halloween parties, housewarming parties and our councilman won parties (!). But more importantly, tucked in amongst all of the pictures of things and places are the people I am grateful to have met, continue to get to know and that show me such kindness I move through this world able to call a lot of places home.
