It is the first thing people want to talk about 
It is the main thing I'm thinking about 

It is happening so fast 

I am officially in the first week of my third trimester which means that in roughly 88 days we will have another human being in our family. That really bowls you over when you start to feel that human kicking you in the ribs.

I love this little boy. 

What an overdue post. I keep adding photos to the draft of this, hoping that I'll be actually posting it, and then either running out of time or forgetting completely.

First up, Halloween recap. We did so many fun things this season, partially because I am just overly excited about holidays this year. Something about being away from home and being pregnant has sent my whole sense of whimsy into overdrive. 

My favorite was probably our pumpkin carving party though, which began with a trip to the pumpkin patch and ended with what amounts to a big tailgate in our backyard as we grilled out and carved pumpkins. 

We also got to go to a party with some awesome people K works with and it was so fun to get to meet so many fun new people. 

We got a surprising number of trick or treaters but it could have been our eight inviting pumpkins or Pikachu coming home on his dinner break to hand out candy. P.S. Pikachu got on TV again this year, that makes two countries in two years. 

Fall is completely beautiful here, although it makes me want to stay home and now that daylight savings time has begun it gets dark sooo early. 

The good news for K though is that the weather makes me want to cook. 

Now the rest of these are just random photos. 

One: I sometime wear K's clothes now. 

This is the end of our street when we took a walk up the beach on Sunday afternoon. 

This is my bump that we found out recently is a boy (!!) and the slow start of making it look wintery in our place:) 

We are overly excited about our visit back to KC soon and you can expect a deluge of photos that don't make any more sense than this post:) 

What a 2nd year we have had. We weren't newly weds anymore, but there were so many parts of our lives that we started in this second year. 

Here are some things I learned being married to my wonderful husband over the past year:

1. Patience: I've still got quite a bit to go on this, but I already know that I've learned to just wait a bit because his calm influence

2. Kindness: I've never met a more compassionate person and while I still have to try to be kind, it is more effortless thanks to his example

3. Joy: Simply put I enjoy life a lot more, and enjoy being me more, because with K we prioritize letting go and living in the ways that WE define.

So many big things happened this year, not the least of which included moving to Canada and finding out we are having a baby. I can't wait for year three.
