This fall seems to have done everything it could to wear me down with long work weeks, cold weather and the never-ending head cold. But last weekend, I got to do two of my favorite things: adventure with Caleb and spoil him a little bit, too.
It rained all week, but we lucked out and got a sunny day for our hike. Caleb discovered a little spot by the water, and we sat down to make some hot cocoa.
I surprised him by stashing Tim Tams in our backpack. We bit off each end of the wafer cookies, sipped hot cocoa through them and then slammed them in our mouths just before they completely fell apart. If you haven't tried Tim Tam Slams before, you are seriously missing out.
When Caleb and I first got married, I remember talking about life timeline sorts of things, like when we wanted to buy our first house, get our first pet or have our first child. He said his goal was to buy a house while he was 25 — and get a dog as soon as we were settled in.
It's crazy to think that this could be that year.
After our little hike, we met up with some friends for drinks, pizza and lemon poppyseed cake. I'm amazed by how much our friendships, careers, home and marriage have grown and changed this past year of Caleb's life. Who knows what this next year will hold!
