My mama bear sent me a fabulous care package in October. If there’s anything I love, it’s the changing of seasons. She sent me pumpkin flavored everything, candy, tea, and fall decor. She is probably the best mom to ever mom.

I had my friend Katie over for a fancy food, chick flick and wine night. There might be plastic ice cubes in our wine glasses, but we don’t need to talk about that.

The family and I went on our annual trip to the mountains. For that blog post, click here.
I’m a mad fan of changing leaves, cool temperatures, crisp mountain air, and photographing everything. These trips are my jam.

We stopped at Panda Express for dinner. #tsogood

We were super blessed by one of my brother-in-law’s former students whose family let us stay with him at their cabin. We really enjoyed epic movie nights, wide open views of the stars, a lot of great windows, and the coffee station outside our rooms.

Adventures around town would not be complete without a stop at The Mast General Store, bottled soda, and some OOTD shots with the mountains in the background. Photobomb courtesy of Jon and Noah.

We spent a good part of the afternoon keeping tabs on the situation back home in Fayetteville where Hurricane Matthew was wreaking havoc. Snapchat, Facebook–all the social media sites kept us in the loop and helped us reassure everyone we were safe too.

I love the stars. I love the moon. I love telescopes. I love all of these things even more when we’re in the mountains.

Our hiking adventure up to a fire tower in hurricane winds.

Mountains, take me back again. I miss you.

Friends and fire pits.
These human beings and our friend group probably don’t know how grateful I actually am for them. They adopted me in October, and it’s been super wonderful.

Work all day, work all night, capture the sunset in-between.

You know what I love? I’ve already mentioned fall and turning leaves. Combine those with photography adventures and I’m set.
I will share those photos with you later.
Also, mis-matched socks.

When you wake up at 7:30am on a Saturday for a photo adventure but don’t drink coffee any more so you have to get a tea that’s as big as your face.

This is such a sibling photo. Just hanging out at church in-between services, like we do.

When other offices hear about the hurricane and the flooding so they make hurricane buckets and send them to your market center to give to people in need. I’ve gotta get real, I lose faith in humanity sometimes but these kind of acts, and all the giving hearts I have witnessed in the months since the hurricane, have been truly remarkable.

The competition was fierce this year at my office. Every halloween we have a door decorating competition. My boss (AKA his wife) did an excellent job. Honorable mention.

“When I grow up, I want to be a dragon.”
Halloween at the Harkness house! I wore my dragon onesie. It has a tail.

best of 2016 playlist

It’s here!

I build a “Best Of” playlist every year and listen to it obsessively. Last year I decided to take what is normally just on my iPhone and put it on Spotify for all of you! Click on the image below to listen.
Happy last week of 2016, friends!
