Last night was a memorable evening. Not just because I got to go out with my handsome husband, but also because we were invited to a grand opening in Lakeland. Hard work pays off. It really is as simple as that. Having a vision, setting a goal and working through obstacles to see a final product. That’s how I would describe Robyn and Jarrid from the poor porker: visionary hard workers.
Who’s ready for the Holidays?!?! Apparently not my kid. This past Monday on our way to soccer practice I heard my daughter mumbling about wreaths but I couldn’t quite understand what she was saying. It turns out, our town has already put the Christmas decorations out in our little downtown area. To my surprise she was perplexed that the city would do such a thing without first celebrating Thanksgiving!
Phew! October is no more. I can’t remember a more busy October month than this last one. We were busy from week 1 to the very last day, Halloween! So without further ado, I’ll tell you my favorite things from October.
Yuba Mundo Bike
With the cooler morning temperatures, the girls and I put some miles on the yuba this month. 50 miles to be exact! Using the Strava app, I nearly doubled our yearly miles! Best part of riding the bike was listening to these two reading books out loud or make up stories on the way to school. Oh, and let’s not remember the day it sprinkled and I rode back home without an umbrella.
Our next to “last” day in Paris was the busiest. Our day started with breakfast at the hotel which consisted of nutella and croissants, breakfast meats and of course cheese. 🙂 After our Eiffel tower tour with Fat Tire Tours the day before, our tour guide told us about the church on the hill, known as Sacred Heart.
The one thing I had planned to do in Paris, other than sit at cafes and people watch, was to go up the Eiffel Tower. I had read all about the long wait times and didn’t want to be part of that. So, a week before our trip I began searching for our skip the line tickets. What I didn’t realize was how busy Paris would be that first week in August.
While I searched and searched, I finally found Fat Tire Bike Tours with a spot for us. Yes, it was way more than buying the regular ticket, but we would have a tour guide and best of all, we’d get to skip the lines. On our way to Paris, our flight was delayed. I quickly emailed the company, who promptly responded and scheduled us on another tour date.
