missing my parents already. They left on Monday after 2,5 wonderful weeks together (recap to come!). Time always flies when you’re having fun. Isn’t that the truth?
trying to adjust back to my regular work schedule which is always hard to do after vacation. Especially when you’re so emotionally jet-lagged.
in disbelief that my niece turns 8 years old today. Time, slow the heck down!
thrilled about my performance review at work. I am one of those self-doubting individuals and never quite know if I live up to other’s expectations, but apparently, I did good. Hooray.
watching the last presidential debate last Wednesday, although the whole thing is getting less ‘presidential’ by the hour.
loving me some Stumptown coffee. <3
eating all the goodies that my Mom brought for me. I requested a few things that I miss from Germany (admittedly, the list has gotten shorter and shorter over time, but some things you just can’t get here in the States), but she also always has some surprises up her sleeve. It’s a Mom-thing, right?
celebrating J’s 34th birthday this week! Happy birthday, love.
struggling to get back into my workout routine. Vacations usually throw me off a bit (although I managed to work out a couple of times while my parents were here, including a run at the beach. Yay!)
excited about fall, pumpkins, and Halloween. I love this time of year and I can’t wait to knit more, wear scarves and boots, and got to the pumpkin patch (again). As you might know from previous years, I am not a big fan of scary movies (and still every year, J tries to make me watch some classics – like ‘Halloween’ with him), but I do like the less scary Halloween movies (like Hocus Pocus :)) and looking at Halloween decorations in the neighborhood.
