Happy Fall!!

The weather is cooling off (faster in some places than others), the leaves are changing (again, NOT everywhere), college football is on (GO DAWGS) on Saturdays, all in all it's just a whole new mindset...

On this first OFFICIAL weekend in fall, what are YOU and/or YOUR family up to?  I hope that at some point this weekend, you will get a chance to get outside.  

I wanted to take a quick second to tell you about what I'm doing this weekend... I'm very excited and little nervous.  My huband and I are going to be in New York, NY to participate in the Stephen Sillers Tunnel to Towers Run.  

Here's a little bit of the story behind the run
"On September 11th, firefighter Stephen Siller had just gotten off the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn.  He was on his way to play golf with his brothers on that bright clear day when his scanner told of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers.  When he heard the news, he called his wife Sally to tell her he would be late because he had to help those in need.  He returned to Squad 1 to get his gear, then took his final heroic steps to the World Trade Center.  When Stephen drove his truck  to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, it was already closed to traffic .  With sixty pounds of gear strapped to his back, he ran through the Tunnel, hoping  to meet up with his own company, Squad 1."

Don't worry, I will be taking TONS of pictures of our FIRST trip anywhere WITHOUT kids since... well, since before we had kids!  YAY!!!  Thanks everyone for all of your support and thoughts!  I hope that you ALL have a terrific weekend!!
