Happy fall!

I know it sounds silly, 
but I always forget that I like fall. 
Probably because I would flippin marry summer if I could....
or because I don't care about all things pumpkin or apple picking*. 

With fall fully upon us though, 
there are tons of reasons to be happy this week. 

1. Bike rides
After my bike got stolen this summer, 
I've been pretty pissy about biking. 

But I got over my shitiness (mostly) and 
hit up our local used bike shop last week 
and bought a new (to me!) bike. 

about this old French beauty
with her pepperoni pizza bell. 

and yes, I need to keep my eyes on the road
and off my camera. 

2. Fall runs. 
Jax and I have definitely put in extra miles 
now that it's cooled off. 
Plus, the crunch of leaves as you're running
is pretty great, right? 

3. Fall beers and books at the studio with the hubs
are the perfect combo for a Saturday afternoon. 

If you can get your hands on Long Trail beer,
I highly recommend it. 

3. Cookouts with friends and their pups. 
Meet Reef. 
He once at an entire deer, 
lived to tell the tale and is also super chill. 

Jax could learn a thing or two from him. 
Just sayin. 

That's it kids! 
What's topped your list this week? 

***My friend John once described me as the most dude-like lady he knows.

Getting over it...

I've been a bit under the weather this weekend. 
Best ways to cope? 

Manhattans, Pup Snuggles,
Scandal, Health bars &
Hocus Pocus 
(amuck! amuck! amuck!)

Feeling better already :-) 

In other news, 
the Chicago Marathon was this weekend. 
Each year when it creeps up, 
I get the urge to run another. 

Where should I go for a destination marathon?
