My favorite month is coming to an end and it was such an amazing month for me! It was full of lots of fun, but also some chaos.
I kicked off September in Colorado with my family enjoying football and time together.
The following weekend I got a surprise visit from my family in Florida who had flown west when the harsh reality of Hurricane Irma hit. It was great to spend some time with my brother, his wife, and my beautiful nephew. While the reason we spent time together was not pleasant, it was great to see them sooner than Christmas. I had not seen my nephew for two months and it was miraculous the development he had from mid-June to early-September.
Weekend number three I got rear ended. What a drag. Thank the Lord I was safe and damage was minimal and a stress free experience. The rest of that weekend was spent at Disneyland! My boyfriend and I became annual passholders and it was an exciting purchase. I can't wait to spend many weekends at the park in the coming year. It was nice to enjoy the park without feeling rushed or forced to get on every single ride, because we have the ability to go back whenever we want.
Last Friday I took my final CSET for teaching credential (I find out if I pass on October 20...please pray!) and then spent the night at the Greek Theater with Walker Hayes, Old Dominion, and Thomas Rhett. What a show. I loved every second of it. I would love to see Thomas Rhett again. His new album is incredible and I recommend you check it out if you have not yet.
The next day I turned 25! Wow. I have never had a more special birthday. My boyfriend and friends made it an incredible day for me. I have never felt so loved before. We celebrated at a brewery. It was neat to watch all my friends from different walks of life interacting with each other and forming their own friendships.
On Monday a pain I had been experiencing in my foot all month come to a head and I had to get x-rays. Unfortunately I learned I had a bone spur and a stress fracture which are likely related. I will be spending October in walking boot which is already frustrating, but I am trying to have an attitude of gratitude with the fact that at least I have a foot and the ability to walk.
Now someone go wake up that guy from Green Day...
