Pumpkins, Harvest, & Life

Seriously is it really fall? Where did the summer go? This summer was packed with many new adventures and new experiences. I've had the chance to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones. There have been major shifts and changes in my life and I really feel like I'm a different person then I was. I signed up for school again and I think to myself why did I ever stop? I love the feeling of completing a class or acing an exam, it seriously just makes you feel so good about yourself. Plus my school sends me little "Congratulations" notes about how well your doing and little inspirational quotes haha its kinda nice. I can't wait to finish and finally have accomplished something that's been a long time coming!
I also went to Vegas with my family and we had tons of fun! Lots of pool time, drinking, gambling, and seeing my best gals. It was nice to get away and just have some fun with family and friends. Only thing missing was Amy and Brandon since he cant really drink yet still from his accident, they didnt want to be the only sober ones in Vegas!
A couple weeks ago I got the chance to spend an entire week down south with Amy and Brandon! We went to ropings and dancing and that saying is so true, wrangler butts do drive you nuts! It was such a good time and I got to go gathering for the first time and see my first branding. I thought the smell and castrating and such would get to me, but it actually was a neat process. And of course the saddle sore that comes with spending all day riding Miss Roxy haha. It was great to see the kids and I just can't believe how big they are getting. Kohan is like a little man now, so smart and such a little shit. Some of the things he comes up with just amazes me. And our little border baby Paige isnt really a baby anymore. She is such a beautiful little girl, with not much hair lol but she has a way of just wrapping herself around your heart. I can't imagine life without those two.
But here it is fall already, even though the weather isnt proving to be fall like, and I cant help but think where did the last 9 months go? It's true when they say the older you get the faster time seems to fly and the harder life gets. It's times like these when you sometimes wish you could go back to those high school days when life was so easy and just about playing sports and Friday night football games and Saturday night parties in the woods. Dont get me wrong I have lived and loved and enjoyed my life but there are those moments when you think "Oh to be a kid again". But we can't go back and we have to face life and make those grown up decisions.........So although I dont want to make such decisions I know I have to and it scares the living daylights out of me! But here is to moving forward and making tough decisions and not letting fear get in the way!
