Thoughts lately (and by lately, I mean tonight)

by Lindsay Parnell

  • The temperature is dropping, and it's getting darker earlier. Summer is ending (insert weepy emoticon here.) Autumn is my absolute favorite season of the year for so many reasons, but tonight I'm not going to pretend that I'm not a little sad about summer coming to an end. I know I've said it here before, but time is going by too quickly. Tomorrow is September 1st - I can't even handle it. (Eric and I went for a run tonight, and my ears hurt because it was so chilly out. Sick.)


  • Two of my dear friends got engaged this past week. I couldn't be happier or more excited for them. Tomorrow we're going dress shopping, and I cannot wait. Weddings are one of my favorite things on the earth. 
  • Friday, Eric and I got super dressed up and danced our booties off. All to celebrate life and our ability to get up and dance. We've watched our friend, Steve Stern, walk the very terrible ALS road for the past four years, but Friday we honored him by gathering and dancing. To say it was a beautiful night is an understatement. Here's a couple of pictures from that night:
  • I'm a little obsessed with landscaping our backyard...I realize that summer is coming to an end and all, but our house just doesn't feel complete. I'm ready to go sit in my beautiful outdoor space, fire pit roaring, and a glass of wine - I wouldn't even care if it was cold, you wouldn't be able to make me come inside. *Sigh*, maybe someday?
