i love this girl

she is two going on twenty. she loves lipgloss, lotion, purses, gum, freshly painted nails and yesterday she said "jossie, can we listen to the song that goes like: she's cheer captain, and i'm on the bleachers?" oh how i've trained her well-- to love tswift. single ladies is in her top five and she knows every song in mama mia.

nothing like a beautiful fall day on the scooters.

and i ended it by talking a walk with my man at freestone park. oh how i love this weather and having him home.

oh tswift

you are gorgeous, humble, wholesome, talented and your music means so much to me.
i lovelovelove your new song.

"i was a flight risk with a fear of falling,
wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts
i say can you believe it? as we're lying on the couch
the moment i could see it

do you remember when we were sitting there by the water?
you put your arm around me for the first time
you are the best thing that's ever been mine

you said i remember how we felt sitting by the water
everytime i look at you, it's like the first time
you are the best thing that's ever been mine. "

last year, i told my dad, i wasn't sure if i could ever fall in love again.
i wanted to believe i could, but wasn't sure.
when i first set on eyes on justin i wanted him like i've never wanted anyone before.
and on our first date we sat by the water at tempe town lakes
and our first kiss was on his couch.
he really is the best thing that's ever been mine
and the best thing i'll ever have.

{can't believe in 9 weeks & one day i'll be mrs. j pattee}

road trip!

i flew out to ohio to be with my man on his days off and his spontaneous mind thought of taking a road trip..
so we did, and loved every second of it.
the east coast is soo beautiful, we "oo'd and "awe'd" the whole drive.
we went under so many bridges and tunnels and always held our breath. just always won by far.
first stop: d.c.
the lincoln memorial

justin's good friend, billy and his wife gave us a tour around the sites

the washington monument

we stayed with just's brother and family. it was so good to have dinner with them and visit. little jane loved having her uncle justin read to her.

next stop: new york city.

{just had never been, and i'm so in love with this busy city}

just LOVED driving in n.y.c, i'm pretty sure that was his favorite part. he loved the craziness of it all.

central park was beautiful
highlight:walking around central park, climbing on rocks and listening to the live jazz music.

battery park. we saw the statue of liberty and loved the view of the city and getting rained on.
love this future hubby of mine..

times square!! on our way back to ohio, we stopped in hershey, pa. it was so much fun to see the process of how the hershey chocolate bar is made. it was pretty intense.

we drove through/saw: ohio, pennsylvania, west virgina, virgina, maryland, delaware, new jersey, new york and connecticut.

yes, this officially makes us world-wide travelers.
