I love when I come home to my apartment and find little gifts my mom has left for me, especially when the gift is homemade snickerdoodles. :) I love walking down the sidewalk with the colorful fall leaves cascading to the ground around me. I love the smell of leaves. I love hot cocoa on a chilly night. I love being covered by layers upon layers in blankets. I love when the temperature is just right and you can throw on your favorite sweatshirt and just walk outside. I love taking long drives into the country and seeing the mountains and valleys with tree that look like a painting. Reds, yellows, oranges. Those colors never look more beautiful together than on a perfect fall day.
Next to Summer, Fall is my favorite season. The sun is shining and leaves are crunching under your shoes while walking down Elmwood with a great friend. it just doesn't get much better than loving the simple things in life, such as a fall day.

I knew Molly lived on the lake, but I had no idea how beautiful it would be! We ate Molly's delicious dinner and went onto her dock to take in all the fresh air and beauty. We did some fishing and the girls and I went paddle boating! It was quite an adventure! There were five of us in this little paddle boat, Molly, her sweet as pie friend from high school, Casey, Missy, Emily and myself. The boat could not be steered for the life of us and it would only go anywhere when we paddled backwards, but when we did that, the back would flood and the girls sitting in back would get soaked. But it was a great time! Once the sun set, the drinking festivities began! There was beer pong, of course!, and King's Cup. Even a few of Molly's good friend's stopped by to join. After a long, exciting day, we were all pretty wiped out and went to bed early.

Megan and I share so much in common and we even look alike that people always mistake us to be sisters. The funny thing is though, we pretty much are sisters. That is how I have always felt.
Megan was there for me when my mother and I were going through our rough patch. She would do my make up and hair when we would go out. We would go see kids movies together like Over the Hedge and even High School Musical 3. I will never forget the times we had together, and I know she won't either. We are both busy and working on our future, so we don't have a lot of time to see eachother, but I hope that changes because Megan is the sister I have always wanted and I don't want to lose her just because we are both busy.
I love ya Megz and I miss you! Thank you for being a great friend to me! I hope I have been as good a friend to you! The picture below is of Megan and my senior prom. I love this picture so much!

Summer is finally here! The weather is beautiful and the beach is the place to find me! So far it has been a great summer, but every once in a while I get a little sad. For three summers, starting in June 2005, I used to work on a ranch in Dubois, WY. But it wasn't your typical ranch, it was the Trial Lawyers College a.k.a. TLC. It also wasn't a typical job when you think of working on a ranch. I helped cook and bake food for about 100 lawyers 7 days a week all summer. Sounds like a lot of work, I know, but it never felt like work. I had more fun at that job than I could have imagined! The people I worked with were all amazing! Gabe, Joshface, and of course Kay! There were also a few people that came and went each year; Eric, the lawn boy, Kyle, and Taylor. The summers I spent on the ranch are precious and incredible memories I will never forget.

1. What is your name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What is your hometown?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. What is your favorite movie?
6. What is your favorite drink?
7. What is your dream vacation?
8. What is your favorite dessert?
9. What is one word to describe yourself?
10. How are you feeling right now?
11. What do you love most in the world?
12. What do you want to be when you grow up?
So, this short and sweet article really helped because even though a lot of the keys to the healthy relationship are no brainers, sometimes people just need a reminder in order to get back on track. :)
Thanks for listening!
Here is the link to the article. Enjoy!
