September

September has come & gone & we made the best of it.

It brought us on some back-to-back-to-back road trips.  To Amicalola Falls/Dahlonega, GA,  to meet Becky & Ansley in Augusta for a girls’ weekend!  And also to the Orchard to see Gramma & Grampa for the first time since Jovie turned 8!

(both  of those visits were long overdue, and immensely enjoyed!)

The waterfall was nice.  We even panned for gold in Dahlonega.  It was a very nice day trip!  Augusta was a whole lot of fun chilling with our friends.  The Orchard, well, it was great picking apples- but we will never go back in September.  Yes, I said that the last time we went in September (when Jovie was a toddler), but now we mean it!

90 degrees & 90,000 people don’t match very well!  However, it was all fun family & friend times.  We are super lucky!

now, it’s barely October & we have already been having fun-  we went to the final Braves game @ Turner field, & are in the middle of yet another visit with Becky & Ansley, who evacuated from Charleston with this upcoming Hurricane Matthew!     More on these later…
