October first is finally here and Minneapolis has decided to officially hop on the autumn bandwagon by dropping her temperatures scandalously low and letting her leaves slowly change from that summer green to a harvest yellow dipped in what reminds me caramel, thanks to that Milky Way I finished just before writing this post. Darrin and I have been doing a bit more walking in our spare time, what with the exciting prospect of crunching leaves beneath our feet. Walking to the coffee shop. The grocery store. We took a break from our work a few nights ago and walked down to the Mississippi River with the hopes of spotting the OHMYGOSHCANYOUBELIEVEITNATUREISSOCRAZYIMHARDLYBREATHING Blood Harvest Werewolf Eclipse Super Moon that I’m sure you’ve heard something about on some social media outlet. We brought the camera along, stood in the middle of the dirt path we had been following, and waited for a solid fifteen minutes in the dark before realizing that this whole autumn moon apocalypse was going to take a bit longer than we had anticipated (aka we should’ve packed our lawn chairs). So we snapped a blurry photo of a moon too far away and walked back home hand-in-hand, already talking about the time we almost watched the September super moon down by the Mississippi in our matching grey sweatpants and old sweatshirts we’ve had since high school.
Even those “almost stories” can make good memories.
So happy October 1 to you and yours! It’s officially Darrin’s birthday month, so we’re in full “planning mode” over here in my head. And baby sister is visiting home from college this weekend! Which means that we’ll be spending all of our weekend free time consuming apple donuts and pastries and pies at the apple orchard because what better way is there to do life in October anyways?
Have a great day!
