I was in Maine this past weekend for my brother's wedding. I was a bridesmaid, which is something I've never been before, but always wanted to be. I finally got my chance! I've been in weddings before, but only when I was little and a flower girl. I'll post more about the wedding soon. I didn't really get a lot of pictures since I was in the wedding party, though. :\
Lately, I've been feeling a bit more creative. I suppose I partly have Chris to thank for that. He has been getting back into playing and writing music, which has gotten me back into it too. I used to write so much when I was younger, and I really miss it. I constantly wrote poems, lyrics, songs, short stories...even a novel once, although it was pretty much one of those angsty teen love stories. I wrote it when I was 14, what can I say? For a long time, I've felt like my creativity sort of died out or went missing, but I'm starting to try to find it again.

I've also been reading a lot more, which is another thing that was on my summer to-do list. I started with Lucille Ball's autobiography, then moved on to The Lost World. I didn't want that book to end. It was so good! Right now I'm reading Fever 1793. It's about the yellow fever outbreak in Philadelphia in 1793. It's pretty good so far!

Chris also caught the fall fever and surprised me with pumpkin butter and pumpkin spice tea! The pumpkin butter is so good. I had it on cinnamon toast, but it's good alone too. It has more of an applesauce consistency than actual butter. I can't wait to bake with it! I made some oatmeal applesauce cookies a week or two ago, and I think the pumpkin butter would be a perfect substitute for the applesauce.
