It is sad, but true; it took us a year and a half since we moved here to have our first party. For those that know me well, it would be a shock to the system, I used to always be throwing, hosting, giving or planning some sort of party back in the day. Marriage, a few kids, moves, and what seems like a lifetime later, I am finally back into the swing of things. It sure isn't how I used to do things, but it was fun and exactly what I needed! We are making good friends here in KC and not where I thought we would find them, but it doesn't really matter. We all have kids around the same age, so it makes it quite the exciting time as we chase them or feed them, discipline, and often are interrupted by them. It was a fun evening; chili, cornbread, pumpkin dessert, pumpkin carving, a bon-fire and s'mores!
It has seemed like the longest summer I have ever experienced, but truly, it has taken awhile to have things cool down and be the crisp Fall that I look forward to all Summer long. The fire pit is finally getting to be used and days outside are fun and sweat free! Last weekend we enjoyed taking in the chilly night air around the fire while having the most interesting conversations with our 3 and 2 year old. It also has been so much fun to meet up with great friends and enjoy the local outdoor activities!
