This weekend Shaun and I are dog- and house-sitting for my parents who are on a weeklong vacation to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Tucker loves my parent’s English Setter Jake, and the neighbors have a Gordon Setter named Piper who comes over to play quite often. Up until this weekend Tucker was pretty afraid of Piper…he’s quite a bit bigger than Jake and plays pretty rough. But after a few play sessions he got way less timid and joined in the bigger boys as they played. It was pretty cute to see him come out of his shell.

These pictures are also proof that fall is on it’s way, if not already here! The leaves aren’t changing down in Madison yet, but they’re already starting to turn at my parents’ house! I love fall, and this probably helps explain why…growing up in a house surrounded by woods and trees…it was always so beautiful around this time of year!

This also helps explain why Shaun and I eventually want to settle down in this area. We’d love a house in the country with some land and privacy – we both grew up in similar households in that respect, and I think it really was a great place to be a kid. Do you have any favorite fall memories?
