Welcome FALL!!

So, fall is here! Not necessarily the cooler temperatures, but summer in every other way is over. Work has picked up for me as A&M students came back last week, we're enjoying football season beginning, and looking forward to a great semester. Yes, living in a college town still has us refer to seasons as "semesters."

Here are a few things we are looking forward to this fall:

1) Community Group - we have been so blessed to be a part of the Lee's (our new NEIGHBORS!) group the last 3 (Jared) and 1.5 (Risa) years. We are going to be in a new group this year with some other couples in our church. We are excited for what the Lord has in store for our new group but will miss our friends in our old group! Here is a picture of a lot of our old group (plus quite a few more!) at a couple's shower in May.
2) Football - We love A&M football and love getting to go to the games with my parents. The first game was last weekend and Caroline joined us for her first Aggie game.
Caroline, Pops, Marci, and Jared looking good!

The feeling is mutual!!

3) Seattle - We get to go to Seattle next month with my work! Jared gets to come along with my boss and 30ish Business Honors students. Fun!!

4) Our new house! We move in less than 3 weeks and are excited to get settled.

This summer was obviously the best summer ever but we are excited for the fall as well! We feel so blessed and are excited to continue starting our lives together.


  1. PLEASE make sure to go to the original Starbucks on my behalf :)
