Friday was Kat's birthday, so thursday night we celebrated the end of her teen-hood with a special dinner and dessert and movies in a special blanket fort. Then we celebrated the last minute by running around the building right before the rain (happiness.)
I feel so blessed to have these three lovely ladies in my life. I learn so much just from just being with you three. I love you and I pray that each year continues ever more amazing than the last. 

Happy 20th Kat!

A thought | a quote

James Fraser wrote "The aim of Satanic power is to cut off communication with God. To accomplish this aim he deludes the soul with a sense of defeat, covers him with a thick cloud of darkness, depresses and oppresses the spirit, which in turn hinders prayer and leads to unbelief-- thus destroying all power (instead of seeing Heb 11:1)."

I just liked this. Thought I would share.

Today I'm a little in love with simplicity.
Let's make life simple.

making the bed
comfy sweater
cup of tea
dinner with friends
laughing too hard
relaxing weekend
list of things to do
finding a good novel
choosing a chick flick
consolidating my online presence

It's a grand 'ole time.

Come right on in, November

Having a holiday to end October just feels nice, and Halloween is so fun here in the States. I'm using my college years to make up for the scariness of Halloween in Europe. It's fantastic.

You didn't think we were going to skip costumes just because we're grown did you?
Welcome to the 60s, 40s, 20s :) 

Also November ushers in the college "holiday season." As in: Thanksgiving and a myriad of events and Christmas parties are about to descend on us. Hopefully we can squeeze in quiet evenings of tea and studying. Let the fun begin!

PS: the weather might even turn to something more akin to actual fall! Yay for autumn!
