November is my favorite month.
leaves quickly changing colors and falling all over the ground.
the air is cooler and i can finally wear scarves!
i feel like i sleep better too.

and can we please talk about sitting by a fire?!
the temperatures are usually just right for them.
so far this year i have warmed my hands by a fire twice this month.
i'm trying to plan more of those soon.

my favorite holiday [Thanksgiving :)] is at the end of the month.
i enjoy it most because it's about food and fellowship.
and i am thankful for the extra time i get to spend with my family.
and hopefully catch up with some old friends.

of course, maybe it's my favorite because it's also my birthday month :)
i will turn 36 this year.
the more time i spend in my 30's the more i know these are some of my best years.
i am growing older and, hopefully, wiser.

i already feel like November has flown by.
so i will try to savor these last 10 days as much as i possibly can.
i am headed to the upstate this weekend.
i can't wait to bundle up and collect some beautifully colored leaves.

it's me. 
i was wondering
if after all these months you'd like to read to go over everything
that has been happening in my life.

can you hear me?
i'm in Carolina dreaming about who i used to be when I was younger & naive.

it really has been too long since i last wrote.
so much has happened in the last 365 days.
i am not the same person i was a year ago.

so Hello from the other side.
i must have cried out a thousand times.
and the Lord heard me!
and He answered my prayers!

Hello from the outside
at least i can say that i've tried
to forgive & trust in His best.
because He sees what i cannot see.
and He knows what i cannot know.
