Fall is here. I don't care if it's still 90 degrees in Texas. Fall is here and I am breaking out my Halloween decorations this weekend. This is my favorite time of year for a lot of reasons. I've always loved holidays. I love the food, the tv specials,the decorations, all of it, and I get close to four months of holiday awesomeness.

This time of year makes me miss my Mom even more. She taught me to love Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Holidays were low key and relaxed but always lots of fun. I miss them.

I keep going back to the memory of our condo in Kennebunk. It was at the end of a dirt road that was maybe a quarter mile long. Our mailbox was at the other end, and I always used to walk down to get the mail. The leaves would crunch underfoot and you could feel the bite in the air that told you winter was coming. And there were crows. I miss crows so much. They're everywhere in New England, and they just don't exist in Texas.

This time last year, I was unemployed and broke. Now I have a great job with a company that has more money than the US government. I have a house and a cat and a puppy and a man I love beyond the telling of it, but sometimes I just ache for the days of walking down that dirt road, smelling pine trees and wet leaves and hearing the crows.

So I've been back from Boston for two weeks which has been spent on countless job interviews for bullshit jobs and really hating the weather.

Boston was amazing. The weather was cool and fantastic. The city was beautiful. Scituate was a lovely little town. Seeing Aaron, Scott, and Woody rocked. Dave never managed to make it down to Boston, but I forgive him for it because he's awesome. I never ever wanted to leave.

And now onto the pictures!

Holy crap guys, Boston is SO SOON. We're leaving at like 6:30 am on Tuesday! I am SO EXCITED OMG.

I'm a bit nervous because I have never flown before. I know planes are safe blah blah blah, am just nervous about losing plane virginity. Seeing Woody and Aaron is confirmed for sure. Hanging with Dave is not 100% confirmed yet, but he NEEDS to meet Duia. Especially after he said he'd ride down to Texas on a camel to hang out with us.

Need to call wonderful Scott from William Arthur and see if he can come down and hang with us too. I cannot believe I'm going to be back in Boston!

I am going to eat so much Dunkin Donuts you have NO IDEA. Don't judge me. I need my Dunkin!
