Life is good. I’m a little in denial that October is now over and we’re getting closer and closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas (and then 2014! Whoa!) I’m trying so hard to take in everything and enjoy the moment. And this past week has been full of enjoyable moments. It reminds me of the Jason Mraz song, Living in the Moment. (It’s ok to start this post off with a video, right? Good. Here you go.)
Last Saturday, we visited the corn maze (our third corn maze adventure this year!) and the boy climbed the spider web like an old pro.
The husband and I traveled to Charlotte to see Matt Nathanson and Joshua Radin in concert. I bought the tickets so, so long ago that I was afraid I would lose the tickets. We met my friend Margi there. There were cookies when we arrived (I so love Doubletree.)
And next to the venue we ate at a restaurant that was all about the Buffalo Bills. It took me back to my dad’s time in Buffalo (he lived there for many years).
The the show. It was so wonderful. First, a poor quality photo with me and Margi.
Then Joshua Radin played.
Finally Matt Nathanson. I love both singers so much.
The next morning, we asked the iPhone for breakfast suggestions and found ourselves at Owen’s Bagels which looked not-so-great from the outside but was SO fun on the inside. Our table was filled with inspiration.
And the food was good too.
On Monday, we celebrated the evening with no toddler meltdowns! Two is hard, y’all.
He tried to sneak out of his room while I was reading to him at bed time. When did he grow this tall?
Fall is definitely in full swing. I love our (Asheville’s) trees. These were in my bank’s parking lot.
My running view that same day. I LOVE THIS TOWN.
Last week I posted photos from Little Gym. This week, we went again, and someone found the climbing wall. We may need to invest in our own climbing wall. Nap time was great that day!
And running in Asheville this time of year is surreal. I’m glad that my former boss (and still a friend) can still run with me some days during her lunch hour.
Last night we went to the fall festival at church. Winnie the Pooh had his first lollipop which we gave him as we tried to avoid another meltdown. Lollipops are magical and today I will buy all of the lollipops in this city if it means I will maintain some of my sanity.
We left our porch light on until almost 9 p.m. At 8:40, we still had trick-or-treaters, and Chloe was NOT impressed with the strangers ringing the doorbell. (I wasn’t super impressed either, but we weren’t home most of the night, and we decided to be a little loose with the time and all.)
and that’s life. Linking up with InstaFriday on Life Rearranged today. Are you on Instagram? You can find me at jaime_mckee.
