Fall never fails to inspire me: brilliant colors, crisp days and cozy evenings...

Today Patrick and I went for a hike in the Collegeville/Saint John's area, and here's a photo for you

336 days to go

I spent a little bit of time playing with a spread sheet to create a guest list for the wedding, and I think I'm more confused now than I was before!

Should we invite the in-town cousins that I'm not very close with but who invited us to their weddings last year? And of course you can't invite some and not others...

I plan on chatting with my mom this week, though, and we are going to Utah next week to visit Patrick's mom, so soon I will have lots of insight ;)

Hey, at least I know I like this idea for centerpieces:

I have access to plenty of peacock feathers :)

I also really like this photographer's style.

Ok, it's time to stop daydreaming and start getting ready for a Saturday at the library.

Happy weekend, everyone :)

I spent last Saturday at the Northern Minnesota Draft Horse Association Fall Field Day

My mom, grandma and I took a road trip out to Belgrade and we gawked at horses and old farm equipment.

There were teams of Percherons and Belgians pulling covered wagons and buggies as well as demonstrating old farming machinery.

It's just mind-boggling see how difficult (and dangerous) farming was back then!
