Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful November!!

I am punching in a blogpost for November, as it has been a cold and strange one here in oHIo! I want to hibernate like a bear right now...lol
I have a beautiful picture of one of the last trees holding onto its fall color. Took this one at the walking park, I try to get myself out there at least five times a week ~

Away to College then comes the Fair!

Rachel getting ready to go back to College. Her room is in various stages of being packed, haha!
Her things looking a bit more packed here. We loaded the Expedition...
Headed off through the Blue Ridge Mountains, Rachel, Dan and I! Beautiful drive!
We made it Rachel, Me and Dan in her dorm room. I don't know how but all her Things really fit in there. (we carried all of it up three flights of stairs!)
We said goodbye and off she went to settle in for another school year. She is a sophmore now.
Yes, I cry every time we part....sniff, sniff! Miss you my love!
