short letters

To the super cute guy that sold me my MacBook Pro: thank you. :) I love my new computer! (and I wish you had been wearing a name tag....)

To Coldplay regarding your new album that came out today: I'm gonna agree with my friend Elizabeth - it brought tears to my eyes. In a good way. You guys have pretty great music.

To my future boyfriend/fiance/husband: did you know that the #3 rule of being a gentleman is not to keep a lady waiting - even though you know that she will? (said in a loving way. I'll wait for you no matter how long you take :) )

To my brother and his cross country team: WAY TO GO!!! I'm so proud of you guys! You ran with the best and did an awesome job - I love cheering for you.

To God: fall. is. awesome. You're quite the artist :) Thank you for creating a season where I can wear sweaters and scarves and drink coffee :)

To all my readers: thanks for reading! And a question: any ideas on what to do with ~60 pumpkins? (besides about 1,000,000 pumpkin pies) My brothers' garden was quite prolific this year!

ice cream!

That's right! We're celebrating with ice cream at our house! Today my brother and the rest of his cross-country team ran the region meet (which is one step before the state meet). They did really well - and well enough - that the whole team gets to go to the state meet next weekend!!!!! Whoot!!!! I got to watch (and photograph) Noah's run, and he did great! *proud big sister moment* :)

I like that photo. He seems so confident, ya know? I thought he ran really well, and it was so fun to watch. I'm enjoying my strawberry ice cream - and I can't wait to watch Noah and his team run in the state meet!! Wahoo!!
