September Celebrations!

September has been a month of celebrations with more to come! We've been celebrating weddings,

baby showers and bridal showers,

surprise birthday parties,

and surprise guests! Jason's good friends, Stanley and Emily, flew in from California to surprise him. He didn't suspect a thing!

 Stan is a storyboard artist for Pixar. Yeah, THAT Pixar. And Emily is a sweet freelance illustrator. You know I have a soft spot for artist couples : )

 We celebrated by taking them to Sotto, maybe our favorite restaurant in Cincinnati.

And we celebrated the opening of Carabello Coffee, our friends' new coffee shop! What started out as a bean-roasting hobby in the Carabello's basement is now an amazing fair trade, social justice-oriented coffee company! So proud of them!
 So many amazing coffee shops in Cincinnati, so little time.
September also means we are celebrating fall! The leaves are still green but there in a new crispness in the air, the thicker blankets have emerged from storage,
 and my trusty white hat has made its first appearances of the season. It's been a "fall is coming" sign for years.
I love celebrating! And there are more weddings and festivals and gatherings and showers to come! But my introverted heart is also looking forward to some down time. I think a glass of wine and some sort of documentary on pretty things sounds preeetty nice right now.

Hope you're enjoying September!
