Ok...not that I'm happy that the summer is almost over but I do look forward to September. I like fall-the beautiful colors of the leaves as they turn, the crisp, cool night air to sleep in with the covers all the way around my neck...and my favorite thing about September...my birthday! I know, what am I 12? I can't remember the last time I was this excited though. My birthday falls on a Monday. On Saturday and Sunday, I'm going to Indiana to be with my aunts and cousins for the Popcorn Festival. We're going to spend the day together and then have a girls night on Saturday night. Sunday, my cousin Sarah is coming back to Grand Rapids with me and she's spending the night. On Monday, Sarah, my mom and I are heading to Traverse City for a wine tasting tour. As Sarah would say-we're looking forward to loads of semi-drunk fun ;-) OH I think the funniest part for anyone who knows my mom's side of the family (Sarah is the daughter of my mom's older sister) is that my mom wants to visit this shopping center in Traverse City that was once an insane asylum (The Village at Grand Traverse Commons). As silly as it sounds the website looks like its a lot of fun with lots to do! Even if it isn't, I think that will give us a lot of jokes for the time we're away! Can't wait for a weekend away with the Schultz girls!
