Oh September, You got me


{final summer nights}

Warm breeze. Rooftop view. Portland lights.

{this} is one of my favorite places in the city.

Probably helps that we always get a little (a lotta) pampered when we go.
like, Sushi/Chicken/Salmon/Scallops/Steak/Fried Rice/Ice Cream/3 bottles of Prosecco-pampered.

{special treatment for the bump. I'm such a diva}

I was having such a good time, that I stayed behind while Daniel went down the street a few blocks to do his fantasy football draft.

free ice cream>football season

Baby Bean was on my side with this one too.

shhh. don't tell the stud hubs I said that.


As the summer sun goes down, I realize that the warmth of life truly comes from relationships and living fully, in community.

Maybe it's the hormones.
Maybe it's the growing up.
Maybe it's the truth.

...

It's the truth.
For sure.

isn't it funny how much more we naturally appreciate our relationships the older we get? or maybe what's really funny is that we haven't always appreciated them that much.
