It is getting cooler here in Central Pennsylvania, and I just love a good Fall wedding! I don't mind when the temperatures start to decrease and the earth begins to sleep… it means that snow is coming soon too (which I LOVE). It also means sledding for my two little ones (they're three and five currently - this is a very big deal).

Words of Wisdom
My grandpa always used the phrase, “This too shall pass.” It’s an old adage that feels almost biblical, and several of my family members have taken to using it. I’ve had to take that mindset lately when several hurdles seemed to be presenting themselves all at the same time. My daughter became sick and had to be held from daycare for several days. Our washing machine broke and leaked water everywhere. We canceled a weekend trip to my husband’s family cabin because of bad weather. And in the “busyness” of the week, I missed harvesting some produce from my garden, and it spoiled.
These may all seem like minor inconveniences in the scope of things, but in the moment, they feel like anything but. However, so much good came out of this week. The canceled trip led to a surprise date night. I got extra snuggle time with my baby girl. The weather cleared enough for an impromptu boat ride with family. We spent a rainy afternoon together processing tomatoes into sauce. And fingers crossed, there will be a newfound pride in changing out a broken washing machine drain pump all by ourselves.
