Around Here: September
Happy Fall! It is officially fall, and we are not sure how this happened so quickly! We are welcoming fall with open arms, one of our favorite seasons. Below are some items that have occurred around here in September!
-continuing to work steadily on my long-term photography project — an image at a time. I received some positive feedback earlier this month on the body of work completed thus far, which I am very pleased about!
-we celebrated the 12 year anniversary of our first date!
-we celebrated three years in our home that we built — we are not sure where the time has gone, but it has flown by ever too quickly!
-we are experiencing a lot of transition and change in this season.
-we saw Bruce Springsteen earlier this month in D.C.
-we took another trip to the Eastern Shore for crabs and shrimp with Victory!
-we took a trip to Delaware over Labor Day weekend and had a great time together!
-we received and hung Victory’s Audrey Hepburn inspired portrait, which we have titled, “Princess Victory,” which now hangs next to Biscuit’s painting.
-we finally got our rugs cleaned, and all of our “spring and summer cleaning” is almost completed — just a little delayed!
-enjoying evening walks together with Victory in her Hound About, especially since it is cooler outside!
-enjoying time on our decks together during the evenings, watching the sun set.
-opening the windows and letting the fresh, crisp air into our home!
-burning fall candles in our home and we also hung our fall door wreaths!
-getting ready for Victory’s birthday in a few weeks — this will be her third birthday celebration with us since her adoption!
-ordered and received Victory’s Halloween costume for this year — she is going to be adorable in her costume. You can view last year’s costume here; 2014’s costume here; and 2013’s costume here! We are excited to head back to the pumpkin patch with Victory! (Victory is shown below from our visit last year to the pumpkin patch!)
-Doug has already begun crafting ideas for his pumpkin this year!
-started working on this year’s Pawliday card!
-finished reading Present Over Perfect, a good read!
-began watching the first season of The Americans, a really good series — I know that we are a little late to the party!
-enjoying the second season of the Magic Lessons Podcast, with a lot of good content and lessons.
-still using my Fitbit and I’m hitting 10,000 steps per day most days.
-continuing to make incremental progress on our ever-growing to do list!
