Peak of autumn

It looks like the color show of autumn is at its peak! We are just immersed in this world of brilliant colors. Every where you look, there is a kaleidoscope of autumnal hues. It's just amazing. The trees are all vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. I never take a second of it for granted. How sad that my favorite time of year is here and gone within a blink of an eye?

This coming weekend, Brett and I are taking a weekend adventure up to the very tip of the Upper Peninsula for a fall color tour. It's a ten-hour drive (I still can't believe how big Michigan really is...) and we're just going to enjoy the ride. We'll be spending the weekend exploring the mountains, seeing waterfall after waterfall, repelling down a copper mine, visiting a historic lighthouse, searching out a mysterious light haunted by a ghost and watching the northern lights over Lake Superior. I just melted in my chair when I wrote all of that out!

I love the rusty color to this dress. I definitely realize how short I am when wearing it though! In the photo of the model wearing it, it graces her knees. On me, it's well past my knees! I just paired the tallest heels I have with them and was good to go! I used to only wear shorter dresses and skirts, but I've been loving the longer lengths lately, especially with cooler temperatures ahead.

Tomorrow Brett and I are headed to Chicago to see my favorite band play my favorite album of theirs all the way through! It's Minus the Bear's 10-year anniversary of Highly Refined Pirates and they are doing a tour playing the album fully through. Isn't that the most amazing thing ever? I can't wait. I'm going to sing every word with the crowd! I've never seen them play my favorite song ever (Get Me Naked 2: Electric Boogaloo) and I'm going to be so happy when they play it!
