Things haven't been particularly great these last few months, but the Everetts are powering through.  And thankfully, our least favorite month is almost over, so our favorite time of year can begin!

And because I'm trying this new thing where I'm an optimist, here are a few things I'm looking forward to:

1) The arrival of my "Leaves" candles from Bath and Body Works.
2) Hanging my fall wreath on the front door and laying out our fall table runner.
3) PUMPKIN BEER.  There's only been 3 fall beers at our grocery store so far ( I know it's August!) but fall ales are my favorite and I need MORE.
4) Football!!!!!!!! College, NFL and Fantasy.  The dynamic of the Everett house totally changes during football season and it's really some of the sweetest, coziest times.
5) Making soup!!!  I make an awesome mushroom and roast garlic soup AND a great French onion soup and it's been far too long since I've made them.
6) Wearing hoodies!  I almost put on  my favorite hoodie when I went up in the hills Friday, but alas, it is still too dang hot for a hoodie.  RIP Trayvon.
7) Hearing the heat kick on.  I MISS hearing the heat kick on and it gets extra cozy in our living room/bedroom.

I'm going to stop at 7 cause it's the number of perfection.  Plus I'm watching season 9 of Grey's Anatomy and they're playing "Time to Run" by Lord Huron so I'm hypnotized by their awesomeness.

I'm also ready to buy a few pumpkins and carve them with my love, because even though I live with him, I just cannot get enough of him.
