OK, I know that is from a Christmas song, but I really think that October is the most wonderful, beautiful, cozy and lovely time of the year. I could probably blog every day during this month about how much I love it and never get tired of talking about it (although I would probably lose the few readers I already have out of sheer boredom) LOL :)
This year, Dan and I get to take a whole week of vacation together for our anniversary which is such a luxury for us. I finally have a job that isn't super busy in October and Dan was able to get his vacation time in which isn't always an easy thing. We're taking off to Chicago next week and I'm so excited. Not only will we be staying downtown to celebrate our 4 year anniversary, but we will also get to spend some time with Dan's aunt and uncle who are a blast to stay with, AND we will be buying our new kitchen cabinets at IKEA! I'm so nervous that we aren't going to get everything we need while we're there, but hopefully it will go smoothly and we'll get home with all the necessary bits and pieces (and they will all fit in our car! *fingers crossed*)
Dan was able to take 2 weeks of vacation so he is off this week too. It was much needed...he works the night shift and it is a very physically and mentally demanding job. We've been looking for a new job for him for some time now, so if you could send your positive thoughts and new job vibes our way, it would be much appreciated!
Hope everyone is having a good start to their week!
