Cheers to October

Happy October! To welcome the month Ohio definitely decided to dip into the high 40s overnight and honestly, I'm okay with that. Ohio is a tricky state, forecasting us back up in the 70s this weekend- but I'll take any taste of fall I can get. I'm ashamed to admit I haven't put up any of my fall decorations yet this year. Typically I've got them out by at least mid-September but that month just got away from me somehow. 

Jared and I are excited to spend some quality time together despite another football-filled weekend. (Is anyone surprised?) Our schedules have just been so wacky lately there hasn't been a lot of time for the two of us to do much- but that's getting fixed tonight! We're getting back to our Friday night gym-date and coming home to enjoy some homemade chili and a good puzzle and/or movie. But not before we get those decorations up, of course ;)
Of course we're always making memories together, no matter what we're doing and no matter what time of year it is- but fall just always seems extra special to me. Jared and I became friends in the fall of 2007 even though we wouldn't go on a date for months and months after that. We also were engaged at the very end of August in 2010 so the fall always reminds me of those early days of our engagement and how giddy we were about the next phase of life we'd entered.

Some of my favorite memories with Jared have revolved around a backyard fire and warm cider in our hands; a pumpkin patch and a carving party where we laughed hysterically over how terrible our pumpkins looked; wandering corn-mazes for hours with some of our best friends and taking a thousand ridiculous photos and videos; attending Halloween parties and always try to outdo last year's costumes; spending entirely too long in Hobby Lobby picking out fall decorations for our first home together and arguing over who picked out the best smelling candle ;)
So cheers to fall. Cheers to the month of October and the memories that are sure to be made this month. Cheers to a love that continues to evolve and change just like the seasons.
