the week in photos.

when you’re in the air conditioning, packing for a weekend of college football & drinking pumpkin beer ..your brain screams “FALL!!!“. then you open the door and 100° temps slap that crazy idea right out of your mind. oh well. nothing can bring me down – football is here!!  and fall will come soon enough.

[J] & I are headed to our college town of iowa city, IA to join in on the festivities.

it has been so long since I’ve been back. I’m excited to spend the weekend wandering our old stomping grounds. and cheering on the football team, of course.

and with that .. it’s time to get this weekend started!
