a few snapshots from this past week . . .

^my dad snapped these pictures of us when we were with my parents on saturday.  i just love how they turned out!  what makes these pictures extra special is that we were at the location where we got married over four years ago.^
^after we visited the alpaca farm on saturday, we came across heckman orchards on our drive home, so we decided to stop to see what they had to offer.  they had rows and rows of bins filled with pumpkins and every type of squash imaginable.  seriously, so much squash!  we bought two types of squash, the largest head of cauliflower that i have ever seen in my life, and a basket of ginormous apples.^
^we absolutely love owning a home that is three quarters of a century old.  old homes have such history and character.  they sure require a lot of love and work, but it is so worth it.  it seems like we always have a home-improvement project going on around our house.  lately, we have been working on restoring our windows (which are original to our house).  it has been a lot of work, and a lot of trips up and down the ladder, but it has been so rewarding to see the transformation.  we only have a few left to go!^

hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
love, laurie
