September has come and gone and the hardest thing has been not to fill my Instagram with the beauty that has been surrounding me.  Not that that would be a bad thing, but I've been trying to savor moments more too.  Oh, this Virginia fall.  This is exactly where I'm supposed to be.  Before I actually moved here after school, I didn't as much feel as if I was a part of the community.  Now I just have so much sense of pride and joy for this special little piece of the world.

So here's some of my happenings from the past month through the eyes of Instagram.  Happy Autumn everyone!

// If I could, I would go photo adventuring everyday. They are the funnest of days.
// Why have I not gone hiking more? I just love hiking and this is one of my very favorite hikes around.  Not to mention the miracle that the sun came out on the way there!
// Sweet potato tacos from Taco Shark - $6.00.  Time spent with my sweet, loving momma, priceless.
// Discovering my passions?  Apparently my dreams, aspirations, and goals give me much more possibilities then I had thought.  I have so many things I want to do and places I want to see and I don't know where and when to start pursuing those things.
// Those little kiddos sweet words and goofy laughs were so incredibly missed.
// I have found my new favorite running trail.
// The Head and the Heart. AMAZING.
