This weekend. Ahhh. It was perfect. Just looking at these pictures makes my heart burst with happiness.
Last week was hectic as ever. Chris had been in Atlanta all week and I was ready for him to be home. Friday night his flight got delayed almost five hours and he was finally able to make it home around midnight. I don't really remember him coming in, but I do remember waking up to him on Saturday morning!
Saturday was the most gorgeous day of the year! The weather was perfect. Not a cloud in the sky, temperature was in the 70's, and we didn't have a thing planned.
After eating breakfast and lounging around, we decided it was time to head to the pumpkin patch. We felt guilty if we didn't get out of the house on a day like that!
Every year Chris buys me a "Cinderella" pumpkin, so off to the pumpkin patch we went.
After discovering that most of the Cinderella pumpkins were rotten on the bottom, we stumbled across this grey pumpkin. It was the perfect size, and the color was what I really loved. I felt as though the color is very symbolic for our lives right now.
I feel like Chris and I are in that grey stage in our life. We aren't exactly newly-newly weds, but we don't have kids yet, so we are kind of in the grey...and I love it! We no longer are figuring out how to live with one another like when you first get married, but we haven't yet tackled the reigns of parenthood. We are in a really, really great place and my heart is just so full.
Chris's engineering side came out in full force while searching for the perfect pumpkin. He analyzes every single pumpkin, looking for the perfect one.
We came across this squash(?) and it was as light as a feather. Literally, so light! Ordinarily, Chris made me take a picture with it.
We also came home with this colorful little guy. I am always smitten with unusual pumpkins to decorate the house with and this one made the cut.
In true Tucker fashion, I dared Chris to pick up this huge pumpkin and, of course, he accepted my challenge. That smile, those squinty eyes, that pumpkin. He melts me.
I am so sad to see this weekend go. Chris and I had so much fun together and it made me excited to be in this stage of life with him.
After the pumpkin patch we went grocery shopping together, the later Saturday night went to church with some friends.
Sunday was full of football and grilling out with more friends and my heart continued to burst.
We are so blessed and I can already tell this fall season is going to be one for the books.
Have a wonderful Monday!
