A Dear Friend

I just had to take a moment and appreciate a dear friend of mine. (I hope this doesn't embarrass her). Her name is Melissa, and she's pretty fun. We knew each other in high school and got a long well but never really knew each other well. 

When Melissa married her husband and moved to good ol' Rexburg we got back in contact. We now see each other a few times a month and always have a great time. Mel just texted me, here is a sample of our conversation. She cracks me up. 

Mel: "Hey! Are you into yoga at all?"
Me: "I've never done it. I'm not very coordinated. What's up?"

--Some talk about yoga and schedules-- 

Mel: "Ok. We might need a cupcake too."
Me: "Phenomenal idea. This is why we're friends."
Mel: "Yep. Pretty much. And if we can't make yoga work, cupcakes for sure!!!"  

Thanks for the fun Melissa, and always figuring out a way to work something delicious into our plans. 



“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.” 

I love Autumn. It is by far my favorite season, and November is by far my favorite month. I also love mornings. This morning I left my apartment at 7:40 so I could mosey my way to my 8:00 am class. The air is so crisp, and so pure in the mornings. I don't understand how anyone could dislike mornings, or autumn, or November. I had this texting conversation with my beautiful sister this morning, (She is also a major fan of mornings):

Me: "Goooood Morning!! Are you as excited to be awake as I am? No one else is matching my enthusiasm!"
Heidi: "Are you just getting up? You've wasted the day away ;)" (sent at 7:56)
Me: "I've been up since six! Silly girl. I've finished half the stuff I need to do for today. Yippee!"
Heidi: "Hooray for mornings! I love them! And we get one EVERY day. PS- you're nerdy like me and I love it."

What's your favorite season, month, or time of day?
