Fall 2009 Spokane Trip

This past week I made my second to last trip to Spokane for midterms. This time my parents accompanied me on my journey! Thankfully I passed my midterms and I am currently on schedule for a December graduation! (yikes!). The first day we arrived I gave my parents a brief tour of Spokane before hitting the books. Then they spent the next few days with a tour of Coeur d'Alene, Seattle, and Port Townsend!
The fall colors were amazing!
Spokane Falls
Harvest House at Green Bluff Orchards- We ate the most amazing apple-huckleberry pie, that we had to go back for seconds!!

Our trip to Portland- First we hiked to the top of Beacon Rock.

60th Wedding Anniversary

On October 22, 1949 The Loebers (Matt's grandparents) were married. We recently were given the privilege to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary with them!

I hope that we are still this in love in 60 years! They are such an awesome testament to us!

Happy Anniversary!! Thanks for sharing it with us!!

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!!

Fall is one of my most absolute favorite times of the year!! I especially have welcomed the colder weather that fall brings! So goodbye summertime I will miss you, but I will not miss your extraordinary heat, roasting in our tiny apartment, taking cold showers just to try to stay cool, the dreaded loud window unit which feels as if you are sitting directly in front of a wind tunnel and requires us to turn on the caption function on the tv just to understand what the people are saying (I never appreciated the beauty of central heat and air until I moved into our little apartment, I promise to never take it for granted again!). So hello beautiful fall, I love your weather, I welcome the fact that I no longer have to read captions while watching tv, that I can finally open the blinds and welcome the sunlight in (no longer needing to block out the heat), that I am no longer required to use paperweights to hold down my papers while doing homework, and that I can finally take hot showers! Although with the welcoming of the fall comes the realization that winter's cold weather is just around the corner.........Not only has fall been welcomed into our apartment but the excitement of the upcoming holiday season, starting with Halloween.....

Of course our lives have not changed that much, although this picture was taken last year it is pretty much identical to the current state of our apartment and how we spend our evenings....

T-minus 2 months....
