I spent yesterday exploring southern Oregon with Aumie and Johanna. It was pouring rain but it was perfect. These were taken at Detroit Lake which is a man-made reservoir. They were draining it in anticipation for flooding so we got to run around the river floor. Pretty crazy sight to see.

We then went to our friend's house party which was filled with the most creative costumes. I think I only saw one or two store bought costumes. The house was also fully decorated with tarot card readings, tons of candy, Karaoke, and additional themed rooms. It was really cute.

With that being said, I bring you this week's wrap-up of things I am grateful for.  Large or minor, they bring me happiness when I would otherwise be feeling glum.  I appreciate you.

♥  Genuine friendships
♥  An expanding family
♥  A new job
♥  New Girl marathons with Farrell
♥  The sweet community of people who love my cats
♥  Rain boots
♥  Head scratches
♥  Light Saber presents from Sarah and Brandon
