It's a Goode Life: Fall Fun

I am grumpy tonight. I am tired and already way behind on my to-do list. I am frustrated with the human race. And, I blew my diet today out of pure exhaustion. Bet you are checking the title of this blog about right now and perhaps a bit confused. No, no... right blog title, wrong attitude. Crummy attitude aside, I am going to rise above and instead of wallowing in this negativity, I am going to share about my favorite family moments this month--and hopeful get out of this funk.

Nothing warms the soul like fall family fun! And we have been having a ball this fall :) Miss Addie has had weekends full of corn mazes, pumpkins, apple pickin' and more! It has been so amazing seeing the world through her eyes.

She takes in every moment with such excitement. "An Aaaapple!" ... "Punnkins!" ..."Corns!"..."Bye, bye Apple Port-chard".."Yaaaaayyyy!"

If only I could approach my day that way. "A Meeeetttinnggg!!"... "Fifty Emails waiting just for me..Yaaay!" ... "Communications plans!"... "Blackberry..WoooHooo!"
She wakes up every morning leaping out of bed wanting to "Plaaaay!!! Yay!" She knows her job and she does it so well. Such energy and such passion. Not to mention the unbelievable amount of love in that little person. Such compassion. She is what is right with the human race.

I wonder if my daughter would be willing to be my life coach? Seriously. Wait, I think she already is.

My girl and my man ;)

A little pep talk with "Coach"

I am so blessed


Ha, funny thing just happened... funk is gone. Yaaaaay!
