Currently: October

I love October, it's always such a beautiful month. The leaves are starting to turn, the weather is cool but (usually) not yet cold, and it's prime time for college football, pumpkin patches, and hot apple cider.

I'm linking up with Anne and Jenna to see what I'm currently...

{eating} chocolate chip cookie bars. One thing I love about fall is that it's the start of baking season. Summer is always too busy and too hot to do much baking, but when the weather gets cooler I love to spend a weekend afternoon making some sweet treat. Over the weekend Jona and I made these chocolate chip cookie bars, and they were quick, easy, and delicious.

{exploring} our soon-to-be new neighborhood. This is the last week in our current house; we move to our new one this weekend (yay!). It's not far from where we live now, but it's in a different city and a different neighborhood. We've been doing a little exploring to see what's nearby. So far we've visited the park across the street and scoped out some restaurant options.

{wearing} fall layers. September was still pretty summer-like for the most part, but about a week ago it cooled off and now it really feels like fall. I haven't wasted any time in breaking out the scarves, boots, and layers. I found a little field jacket for Jona that's similar to mine, so over the weekend we wore matching gingham layers. #cantstopwontstop

{admiring} my dad. Last week my dad's company threw him a send off party, as he is retiring next week. It was fun to be surrounded by his former and current co-workers, and hear stories about him as a colleague, boss, and friend. I'm so happy he's retiring and giving himself a much-deserved break. He's always taught me the value of hard work and set high expectations for me. As a kid sometimes that drove me crazy, but as an adult I appreciate those values he instilled in me.

{collecting} boxes, newspaper, and moving tips. Moving day is almost here, so it's crunch time to get everything ready. I want to be as organized as possible so we don't lose anything in the abyss of boxes. One article I read from iHeart Organizing recommended using color-coded tape to pack boxes, one color for each room or floor, and I think that's a pretty good idea. I'll be scouring Pinterest for more moving tips this week no doubt.

What have you been up to currently?
