*Fall*ing Forward

Okay guys,

we have some catching up to do. Just when I think life can't get any crazier, life proves me wrong by saying "oh really? watch me!"

I have missed blogging, but between work, a puppy, and our first year of marriage, Its been hard to find the time sometimes.

I'm sitting on the couch next to Sam right now catching up on Dancing with the Stars and I just had to catch y'all up on what we have been up to.

Today was the first day it actually felt like fall outside in Georgia... I am so excited about it!!

So Sam and I have been married for 6 months now... SO CRAZY... the year has just flown by. Feels like yesterday I was walking down the aisle about to start our next adventure in life, marriage. Our first 6 months of marriage have been the best 6 months of our life. Full of adventure and family fun, but it also hasn't been the easiest 6 months of our lives either. 

 Learning how your spouse handles death is never easy. We have been in that season of life were death has fought its way into both sides of our families. Seeing the people you love pass is never easy. Life can be funny sometimes with how drastic it changes. We have learned how good God is in the midst of a storm, and that sadness doesn't last forever. 

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy will come in the morning." 
Psalm 30:5

Since life has been so crazy we decided that October was going to be full of chasing after God, tons of family time, and loving life for what it is. This of course meant lots of new adventures and taking a step back in the church plant we had been a part of to fully see what God has for our lives. Something just feels right about exploring all that God has for us even though we have no idea where we are going.

Here are some adventures we have been on recently:

My mom found this sweet little gem online (Fausetts Farm) while she was looking for fun things to do this fall. We instantly wanted to go check it out. There is nothing that speaks joy then being in a field with sunflowers smiling all round you.

My dad and Sam wanted to take a jumping picture together haha.

Our next little trip landed us at Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge, GA. It isn't fall to me without lots and lots of apples... or apple cider! 

While Sam went to look for hard cider, I came across the little corner of the store full of books. Sam found me sitting in the corner reading Georgia history books. We are such opposites!!! But hey they say opposites attract right??

After apple picking, we went to the lake to have a picnic dinner. It was super windy out, so my dad pulled his kite out of the back of the car and taught Lydia how to fly one.

Our last little trip was to the pumpkin patch. 

Lydia was on a mission to find the "perfect pumpkin". She spotted a pumpkin across the field and was certain it was going to be her "perfect pumpkin", so we started the long walk to the pumpkin...

... when we got there Lydia realized it was no longer the "perfect pumpkin", but a rotten pumpkin. She was devastated, but was soon back on the search for a pumpkin.

We have had a blast on our adventures so far this fall, and can't wait for the many more together.
