it was a weekend full of comfort & fall fun-- just what i needed!
a mild evening walk all around town with lu. we walked through the busy downtown, around the capital, back through town, up to my parents, and home. 3.3 miles. soon after, brett arrived home with thai in tow.
a great cup of coffee. a good workout. a walk in the park with the dogs, jenna & mom while we enjoyed children's books as part of storywalk. a belated birthday brunch with mom, some farmers market goodies, and a continued mother-daughter date with a field trip to waitsfield for the baked beads sale. upon returning to town, j invited me for a spontaneous matinee date & a glass of wine. quality time with my people fuels my happiness.
the day started with a very brief skype session with cayla, who is in india for the year! a morning hike up spruce with jenna & the dogs. a year ago, we hiked spruce when od was just a little pup and lu wasn't a part of our world. it was fun to revisit the hike with both dogs leading the way, and the foliage was gorgeous. i returned home for a grocery shop, and then had a little fun in the kitchen. i tried a new pumpkin muffin recipe, which was delicious, and prepared an old standby soup recipe in advance for dinner tomorrow. i squeezed in an hour of work in hopes of making this workweek less crazy for me. brett got home and we enjoyed tomato soup and grilled turkey, cheddar & apple sandwiches.
