I’m not sure how the rest of September flew by so quickly, but it certainly did! After Leighton’s birthday, we had some other fun things going on the last couple weeks of the month, so I thought I’d recap here before we get into full-on FALL mode. Who’s excited about that?!
I got to spend a long weekend in Asheville, NC on a girls trip celebrating one of my best friends on her bachelorette party. It was my first girls trip in a couple years and also my first time leaving Craig home to man the house with Leighton…. just a tad scary — mostly for him! 🙂 Asheville is such a beautiful place, and the Grove Park Inn (where we stayed) lived up to the hype!
We spent the weekend eating way too much good food, hanging out at Wicked Weed Brewery downtown, doing a wine and beer tour all day Saturday, enjoying the mountain views from the GPI (no actual hiking took place), and just having a fun time with D’s girls.
Leighton spent a lot of time this past month playing with her new toys, riding her trike and cozy coupe around the ‘hood, trying her first kids meal, going to music class, and making a big mess during meals. Oh, and she’s now mastered the big, slobbery, open-mouthed “kiss/lick” when you ask her for a kiss.
We welcomed three new baby friends into the world this month, and I was fortunate enough to be asked to photograph all these sweet babies! My job is the best. I had a fun little girls night out last week with my old coworkers at our new fave meeting spot, Krog Street Market. Among other things, I had the most amazing frozen sipping chocolate, pictured below.
We also started prepping for Halloween before we headed up to Nashville for a wedding last weekend. Our house is now officially Halloween-ed. Bring on Fall!
