Whew. September flew by in the blink of an eye, and here we are in October. This officially feels like the first month of fall (although we’re still enjoying some pretty warm temperatures over here). Part of me doesn’t want to let a great summer go, but part of me is ready for fall. I guess, it’s good to have a love for all seasons, so saying goodbye to one is never that hard because I am usually also looking forward to the next one.
+ I started off this month with a weekend in San Francisco to enjoy the last couple of days with B + M before they headed back home to Europe. They picked the perfect time to come to California because September usually has the best weather. There was no cloud in sight, it was a comfortable 70+ degrees and we got unobstructed views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
+ Our visitors have now left and even though I was sad to see them go, I am looking forward to a bit more of a normal routine again. These last three weeks were a whirlwind. I’ll be working on some recaps of my recent travels for the blog, so stay tuned.
+ October is a busy birthday month! I know so many October babies! It’s J’s birthday on the 18th! I am hoping we’ll do something fun for his birthday. He shares his birthday with my friend Susi and then it’s also my Mom’s birthday (today!), my niece’s (on the 21st), my godson’s (on the 5th) and two of my aunts’ birthdays (the 26th and 27th) this month and I wish, as always, that I could hug them and celebrate with all of them.
+ Last year around this time, my parents were here and I took them to the Paul McCartney concert at the Golden One Center for my Mom’s birthday. I can’t believe it’s been a year! It was such a great time having them here.
+ My workout schedule was a little “messed up” due to my travel and another half marathon last month, but I am looking forward to getting into a regular routine again. Why is it always so hard to get back into your regular routine after some time off?
+ Las Vegas. What can I say? I don’t have any words left for these kinds of happenings anymore. Not because they don’t shock me anymore; they do! But honestly, if I read one more “pray for Vegas” post, I am going to throw a tantrum. Praying won’t help any of the victims anymore. Something needs to change in this country. We obviously can’t control people, so how about we control guns? Just a thought.
What’s going on with you in October?
