Soul officially lifted

     In some ways, this fall has been like a breath of fresh air.  Being a school teacher, the start of the school year and the changing weather is sometimes accompanied by a busy schedule and a fair amount of stress.

     I don't know if it is the changing of grade levels, other differences at work or positive life changes, but  I have fallen in love with this season.  In many ways, it feels like a weight has lifted.

However,  I also greeted October with a nagging feeling of dread for reasons I'm sure I will get to later.

Lately, my soul has been lacking.  Have you ever felt like your soul needed something, and for the love of Pete, you can't quite put your finger on it?

This morning, I looked at Scarlett, and Scarlett looked at me, and in that moment, I knew that our souls needed a Pumpkin Spice Latte (me) and a trip to The Dog Park (her). 

I was right.

I hope you guys had a great weekend.
