we went to the pumpkin patch, & the iphone came too

…and actually, our dslr came too. but those photos later, gator…like, tomorrow, probably.

anyway...a trip to the pumpkin patch is way, way up on our list of things we look forward to each year. this year, we went to a little farm out in eerie, CO complete with a petting zoo, corn maze, and tractor-pulled cart ride out to the pumpkin patch. we opted for a small, wart-covered pumpkin to take home. mostly we can't wait to have a little house -- you know, a place with steps, and a fireplace mantle -- so we can gather up a few gourd friends for decorations. but until that blessed, blessed day…ok, yeah, until that day, i'll probably just keep lamenting our lack of mantle, if we're being honest. and also gathering a lot of ideas for decorating that mantle. clearly i'm putting a lot of emotional stock into future-mantle. stay tuned to see how that one turns out!


  1. you look so comfy, and your boots are great!

  2. I feel you with the house-fever. I need a mantle too....and walls I can actually paint. Oh, and also a library, please. Sigh.

  3. I went to a pumpkin patch this weekend, too! So much fun!
