This was the weekend that Anthony and I were supposed to be in Chicago. As much as we were looking forward to an actual vacation and to exploring a new city, real life got in the way and we had to cancel our trip (we now have a cool JetBlue credit to use--the possibilities are practically endless, at least until it expires). Instead, we spent an extended weekend together doing very little but have a great time.
We finally went apple-picking:
I tried to make Halloween cards but my 'scary' monsters all wound up looking like Elmo:
I went through the IKEA catalog and tagged a bunch of things that would definitely help organize our apartment:
And finally, a homemade apple pie, lattice-style:
Could I use a few more days off? Of course. But I'm happy we had this time together and that we were able to enjoy some autumn activities.
And I know I've been slacking with my posts. The past few weeks have been insanely busy, at work and at home. This week, I promise to be a better blogger (and to write more, and to read more, etc.).
I hope you all had wonderful weekends. Happy Monday!
