I just spent the past four hours sitting outside on my deck studying for the OITE and enjoying the most perfect sunny 75 degree afternoon. I need more afternoons like that in my life. Of course curling up with a great book rather than Miller Review and upper extremity assessment questions would have been just a tiny bit better, but I'll take what I can get.
On that note, here are just a few pictures I've captured over the past week that indicate that summer is a long lost memory and fall has arrived.
Open Windows and Fresh Fall Air
Last weekend I soaked up the cool night air by leaving my windows open overnight. Sadly, my neighbors decided to have a very loud domestic dispute at 4am on Saturday morning. Not exactly the the time I was ready to be awake or the peaceful nature sounds I thought I'd be awakened by.

Apples, pumpkin, kale, and butternut squash are just a few of my favorite fall foods. Seasonal ingredients will definitely be finding their way onto many of my plates in the upcoming months.
It's hard to imagine how we spend our Saturday afternoons any other way.
My birthday, Mom's birthday, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
All of these festivities translate into quality family time, which I love.
Plus, my first vacation of second year is coming up in October! I can't wait!
