Thrilled for Fall

Fall is my favorite season. This isn't a secret or even anything new. Anyone who has known me for a really long time will know how much I love the fall. So in celebration of the first full day of Autumn here is my top ten reasons I am excited for it to be fall. We'll do this David Letterman style.

10. Cool crisp air, for someone not from the midwest the break from the humidity is awesome!
9. Get to start wearing my sweats around the house again, frumpy, but so comfy!
8. Sweater weather!! A term coined by me and my best friend in high school to describe the perfect fall weather.
7. Hot apple cider, my favorite!
6. The smell of harvest time, burning fields, totally reminds me of home.
5. Pumpkin anything!! I love pumpkin and this is the season that I can get as much of it as I want.
4. Changing leaves on trees, Eric & I get to go see the fall color in New England this year. I am so excited!
3. My birthday! Not that I am in the mood to get older, but still a reason to celebrate and eat cake.
2. College football . . . I am an addict!! Really it is the greatest thing ever.
1. Cause I am getting married this fall!! Ok so I know that one was lame, but still a HUGE reason I have been waiting for fall to hurry up and get here.
And that is it, I am a total nerd, but I love Fall!!

Making Adjustments

I'm getting married in a few weeks. I know that isn't new news, but still . . . it has everything to do with my thoughts the past few days.

I have been single for quite a while now . . . my whole life really, but been on my own for a long time. In fact been living completely alone (minus Cletus) for several years now. In face I bought my house two years ago so that I would have a place to make my own and settle in.

Now I am suddenly realizing that my years of complete independance are almost over. You would think that I knew this when I agreed to get married, but for some reason it didn't really hit me till just now.

We are moving Eric out of his apartment this next weekend. So for the past couple weeks some of his things have been gradually making their way down to my house where we will be living. But it wasn't till yesterday when I came home for lunch and saw my kitchen full of boxes, his clothes in my closet, and other boxes and some furniture in my house that I really got it. I have to admit to having a mild panic attack (I think I am stressed out about way too many things which is probaly the main cause of the panic attack, but still). I kind of freaked out which is totally not like me.

I love Eric and I am very excited to spend the rest of forever with him; I am just coming to realize what a huge adjustment it will be to have somone else in my life and sharing a home. This whole married life thing is going to be quite the change for me.

As pretty much everyone knows I am engaged to marry Eric Roundy.

We will be sealed in the Boise Idaho Temple on Saturday October, 10th. There will be a reception at the LDS Cherry Lane Building in Meridian, Idaho that night from 7-9pm. We will also be hosting an open house in Naperville, IL on October 24th at the LDS 95th St. Building from 6-8pm. Announcements will be on their way shortly, but many people have been asking for details so here they are :)

We are very excited and would love for all of our friends and family to be able to celebrate with us.
