I have been contemplating whether or not to write about this because it’s personal and slightly embarrassing. D and I have been working on this goal since before we got married and it’s been a long time coming. We learned a lot about money, finances and sacrifices while going through this process and maybe some of the tips we picked up might help someone else someday down the line.
Alright, so we already have established that I LOVE autumn time more then any other season. From the hats and boots, to the changing leaves and really hearty and warm meals, I could live in Autumn weather forever. When the weather starts to change, you can bet that I am breaking out my slow cooker and making all kinds of autumn meals. One of my favorite go-to slow cooker recipes is pot roast. A lot of people are super impressed that I make it frequently, probably because making a roast sounds intimidating and tricky. This isn’t the case and I’m not as impressive as you might think!! It is super easy and because it’s in the crock pot, you only have to put everything together in the morning and turn the thing on!
Since Rosie came into our lives, the opportunity to make friends has been endless. When you have a dog, I have learned, you are automatically privileged to walk up to anyone else who has a dog to say hello and let your dogs meet. Rosie started making puppy friends and we started meeting up with their owners so all the puppies could play. It started out as a social time for the pups, but as the summer wore on, we became really good friends with all of the dogs’ owners. This may seem sad, but we have more friends now then we did a year ago! We see them on a daily basis so that the dogs can all play, and we even do things together outside of puppy play-dates!
