Fall-ing in love all over again

I’m pretty sure I announce my love of fall every year at this time, so this year is no different. Or is it? The things I love about this season haven’t changed: cool mornings, college football, pumpkin-flavored everything. But between my husband, Daniel, and I, our roles and responsibilities have changed and we enter autumn as the parent of two young kids, both working and Daniel completing graduate classes toward his MBA. Basically, we’re totally busy and crazy.

This time of year is also our anniversary and it’s a reminder of the day we tied the knot in Beaufort four years ago. So much has changed for us since then, it’s comforting to look back and remember the fun of having all our family and friends together as we said our vows. It was the best decision I ever made to marry Daniel and I can’t imagine my life without him. I’m so grateful for his love and patience, and watching him as an amazing dad only makes me love him more. I feel fortunate to celebrate with my favorite person during my favorite time of the year.
