We are home from ANOTHER weekend away and we are finally DONE travelling for the summer. Somehow, all of our summer adventures ended up in August...we've been gone EVERY WEEKEND, and I'm tired.

This weekend, we went to some friends of our family's mountain cabin and really, we just relaxed. It was my dad's side of the family's annual campout (if you call renting expensive little cabins at a mountain resort with a pool and workout room "camping"). It was fun, and chilly! We really spent only one evening with the large family and most of it with just my parents and brother, sister in law, and baby abby. It was so nice to snuggle up with cozy blankets and coffee, and watch old movies. The boys played outside and we did venture out to Timberine Lodge for lunch, where it was SNOWING!! Hello...it's august! It was so cold!

This was the most relaxing trip we've had, and it was nice to just BE. Matt is back to work today, and school starts tomorrow! I cant' believe it's time already. I am looking forward to fall...it's my favorite time of year. I love crisp cool mornings, fall colors, and getting back to some routine in my life. I'm not a super structured gal, but I do like predictable routine in my life. It helps me be more organized. And if you know me...like my hubby says "you need an orgazational life coach"...at least at home. :)
