October has been defined by a lot of highs and lows. The life I live is beautiful, why is that so hard to forget sometimes?  

It helps to be reminded: 

I (really) love obnoxious Halloween decorations.

I love the colors.

I love getting away for the weekend in northern Michigan, I love long walks in the woods, I love this picture.

I love apples & apple picking

I love fall leaves and blue skies 
(and I also love my big brother) 

I love when my whole family fits into one room.

I love random cat on Grand Haven pier (and the friends I found it with).

I love that I live with my friends.
I love when God reminds me everything is going to be okay.
I love that I'm thirty minutes south from my family and thirty minutes west from my boyfriend.
I love fall TV series.
(Modern Family, Glee and New Girl)
I love listening to Needtobreathe at work in the mornings. 
I love wearing equestrian boots and chunky scarfs.
I love horizontal stripes.
I love when old friends come to visit.
I love Parrots Lounge and alumni. 
I love the sound of crunching leaves.

I just love October. 
(More pictures to come soon. Promise)

Day 30: something you can't live without

I'm very sure I could live without Burt's Bees.  But I do get separation anxiety if I don't have one near by.  These three were the only ones I could find in my room.  I think I have two in my car and one at the office.

Day 29: modeling your favorite outfit

J Crew cardigan, Banana Republic blouse and belt, Forever 21 jeans, Nine West boots.  Favorite outfit, not exactly modeling it.  Oh! And disclaimer: only half of this outfit is mine, the lace top and belt are Dunning's.  

Day 28: what you wore on your feet

New shoes came in the mail and they were a size too big.  I was going for the instant gratification of retail therapy but now I have to wait another week for the correct size. Grr.
