Hello Fall! Nice to see you again! (October)

Life hasn't slowed down since the last time I sat down to write, in fact it may have gotten busier. The first quarter of the year was wrapped up, we held our first parent teacher conferences, have been out observing other teachers, have been busily reading for grad school, and perhaps squeezing a little bit of fun in here and there.

October flew by, and for me was marked with a much needed trip back to North Carolina to see my best friend Megan get married. Sadly, it didn't seem financially responsible for us both to make the trip, so while I was busy being pampered at the Grove Park Inn Spa, eating chocolaty treats, and playing with some of our adorable nieces, Chris was hard at work here in New Mexico.

My trip was quick and nowhere near restful, yet it was rejuvenating at the same time. OK, you got me, spending a day at the spa was certainly restful, but I was on the go, go, go, trying to get as much as possible crammed into the three days that I was back east.

Thursday: Spa Day, Rehearsal Dinner, and a Chocolaty Bachelorette Bash
