Saturday was a great day. It was a beautiful fall day with sun shining and a cool breeze in the air. We started our morning off with pumpkin pancakes, coffee and family time. Jon headed down to the restaurant afterwards and the kids and I packed up and went to the library. We all met at home for lunch and then playtime in the yard. Jon has been so busy working in the yard splitting wood from a couple trees we had cut down last year. We've had the wood stacked along our back fence but it's time to get rid off it and use it this winter for fires.

While Jon worked on this all day I cleaned my garage....which I have to tell you I have not parked my car in the garage in five months. Yes, my friends, FIVE months. Instead, parked inside were kids bikes and toys. It was time to put a stop to that nonsense. After this task I vacuumed out my car and proudly pulled it in to the garage. I also started the job of cleaning my work space. My decluttering continues and I have lots of jewelry supplies to list in my shop. I even managed to get in a run. I struggled with my run but at least I did it.

Saturday night I hung out with my best friend Julie over at my sister's housed for a Wicked Wine tasting. It was nice to hang out with friends and family and enjoy some down time. I have to admit though, I was beat from my hardcore cleaning I did during the day. I planned on staying up until Jon got home to have a glass of wine together, but I fell asleep as soon as he got home.

So, I feel like we have nothing going on yet so much going on right now. First, I am kinda excited because I have been working so hard on figuring out my camera. I have talked about how I love photography but don't really know what I'm doing. Well, something clicked this weekend and I've been shooting in manual all weekend. I became so dependent on the programmed and aperture priority modes that I never explored the manual mode. Wow, was I missing out! So please bare with me and my photos and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

On a bit of a bigger note....we have decided to move. We have just begun the process of house hunting and we have a long list of things that need done to our house before we sell. We won't put our house on the market until after the holidays, but we need to start the preparations now. The holidays are a crazy time for us because that's Jon's busiest season at the restaurant. I pretty much don't see him the month of November and December. If you can believe it Christmas Eve is our busiest day of the year!

So our Sunday was spent looking at houses and starting some early birthday celebrations for Jon. His birthday is on Tuesday.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend.
