A fall affair...

Our friends Bill and Anna from church invited us to go to a Country living fall fair today in Morrow, Ohio. It was LOTS of fun. They had a lot of neat stuff set up, various companies and vendors displayed their pottery, handmade baskets, purses, jewlery, lots of fall decor, I think we stopped by every single tent!

John and I bought a Christmas present for a relative and some handmade soap shaped like leaves. The scent is called 'Pumpkin Patch' it smells really good!

Bill and Anna bought a really neat antique trunk for their living room.

We had a great afternoon, got lots of exercise walking around for a few hours.

Last night, John enjoyed the Cincinnati Orchestra perform the Lord of the Rings music LIVE from all three soundtracks. James treated him to the event and they had a wonderful time!

Here's John and I next to a moose at the Fall fair

Has it been a while???

Hello friends and family!

Oh how glad I am that the Fall season is upon us...though here in Cincinnati the high is 94 degrees, not quite fall temperatures. :( Fall is definitely my favorite season...not too hot not too cold. Leaves changing colors, smells in the air...ahhhhh

Things here are going really well. My job is great, I think I stress out easily sometimes, but I realize that God is in control and really, everything is just fine. :) John has been super busy studying for the CFA exam - he takes it December 1st. He's studying at the library as I type this.

I wish I could say with 100% certainty that we will be able to make it home to KS for Christmas, however, I don't know yet for sure if work will allow. I will follow up this week, we hope to be able to be home with our families!

I am looking forward to going to Kansas City in October to see friends. Should be a wonderful time!

We've been enjoying teaching our Sunday school class and are planning on going through a new book in a couple weeks.

It's hard to believe that it's already been over a year...since we've been married, since I started my job, since we've first moved into our apartment. WOW...

Tip and Lindsay and my mom blessed us with their company over Labor Day weekend. We had a great time - here are some pics

Miss you all!
