Month In Review: September

I wished fall here so often that now I fear its going to come and go before I can fully enjoy it! October nearly here already? It can't be! But it is... time to break out the orange and black decor, time to finish up those drawn out Halloween costume plans, and time to do a review of September here on the blog! I hope you enjoy taking a little peek at some of my favorite posts from September, and if you missed a post just follow the link! So lets see...

Special happenings in September: 
First ever road trip just me and my mom (and baby john:)), I got my first ever IPhone! (5:)), my sister April had her first baby girl after four kids, and my sister in law Tiffany had another little boy! an aunt twice more in one month! haha I went on the first ever road trip with three kids and no hubby to see another sister Jordan (pictures to come!), found the best cheapest Mexican place is town *fist pump*, bought a new lens, had the first fire in our new wood-stove, and so much more goodness. September is always an awesome month:)     

Favorite new-found blogs:
Whiskey For Breakfast
Everyday Is A Holiday
Angry Chicken

Things I learned:
- I can survive with zero sleep for only two days in a row. that's it. 48 hours is my limit.
- there's so much amazing freedom in cooking without recipes.
- I can't let a day go by without playing music for hours on end.
- there's really no sweeter sound then my girls giggling together in the next room.
- blogging is so much more rewarding then I ever thought it could be, and I never realized how many wonderful and inspiring ladies were out there to meet!
- stepping outside in 50 degree morning weather is the most refreshing thing in the world.
- sometimes all I need is a tight hug from Martin to help me realize everything's okay.

Things I'm grateful for:

- European chocolates from NYC:)
- heavy-duty child gates,
- huge wood piles in my yard,
- my iphone 5! 
- sharp razors,
- vacation plans,
- late night snuggly chats by the fire...

What was your September like? Have a beautiful weekend! Love you guys:)

xo, Emily
