Tufts football #71 - aka #kyledukefanclub














New England fall


















I've been itching to go on a drive since the fall is going to be gone before we know it.  I love rambling around New England so that's what I did today after taking family photos and before the football game.   I feel so lucky to live in this part of the country; it's so beautiful.


And my favorite

These sisters have a beautiful friendship.

the Jackson girls




I warned Rachel...

…that I was going to take a few photos of her with her girls.  And I'm glad I did.  I hope she frames this one for her husband's desk at work.

I know this photo is blurry but I love it

Oh, Beacon Hill


There's a lot of love in this photo






















Adler is crazy about his Chopelas grandparents and they are crazy about him.

Adler and his dad

Chopelas family photos

Jenn and Adler live in Oklahoma now (sad!) but are in town this weekend and she asked if I'd take their family photos on Acorn Street.  I think this one is my fave.

Big towing morning on Beacon Hill

TBT: Aunt Essie






















My great aunt Essie heading into the Santa Anita Park in the 40's.  I found this the other night in a box of old photos.  My dad inherited a farm in Texas from Essie when we were kids.

Grapes

My lunch grapes resemble the glass grapes the Relief Society sisters used to make in Homemaking Meetings.  Was it in the 60's?  Who has the recipe?  They might be fun to make again.  #retroreliefsociety

FHE: movie night























I saw "Meet the Mormons" tonight and I really liked it.  All the people in the movie were so REAL.  Gosh, I want to write them all notes and/or meet them in real life.

Last year some old friends were getting rid of old church books and magazines and I was the lucky recipient of lots of cool things.  This book was published in 1972.

Tenoch

I've been wanting to try Tenoch forever and I finally went tonight.  Those fish tacos were delicious.  There must have been 25 people in line when my friend and I got there (always a good sign, right?).  Once you ordered your food, they made it quickly, you paid and nobody had to wait too long.  I'm definitely going back.

TBT: straight hair

My friend straightened my hair before I donated it about 8 years ago.  #aintnobodygottimeforthat #curlygirl #locksoflove
