Deep Creek Lake

I know this was a long time ago, but for Memorial Day we spent a few days at Deep Creek Lake. I wanted to share some pictures that I took in the morning fog because I thought the fog was SO COOL!

As I say good-bye to summer, I can barely hide my anticipation for fall!!! Here are a couple of things that I want to do as the weather cools and the leaves turn...

Mount Vernon
Smithsonian (I live in the coolest city)
A trip up to visit the Boston Fletchers
Celebrating Layne's birthday week
Thanksgiving - the day we celebrate obesity
And lots of warm nights cuddled up with Mister Fletcher!

I've already enjoyed my first scarf day of the season,

carving pumpkins (epic fail),

my first batch of pumpkin bread,

and my first hot chooclate. Though I never really stopped with the hot chocolate... I LOVE whipped cream far too much.

Good-bye Sunshine

Good-bye Sunshine!

I'll miss you through the nipping chill of winter. Though I first have a warm, amber autumn to enjoy, so I suppose our parting is bittersweet.

The last few months have flown by. Summer has seen its last sunset and schoolkids are slogging through homework and planning their Halloween costumes. Last year, Layne and I were Marty McFly and Doc.

We rocked it.

In the last few weeks of summer, Layne's mom visited and so did my dad. We took a trip to Deep Creek Lake with family friends, and  Layne visited his brother and family in Boston while I spent a few weeks in Utah. And then we turned around and it was October!

What did you spend your last few weeks of summer doing? I hope you made the most of it before cold weather sets in!

When L Met M (the prologue)

 I had to ditch the old blog name. Layne refused to participate and "Mister and Missus Fletcher" made it seem as though he was going to be active, or even willing. I simply could not deceive my many, many, MANY, readers.

You two understand, right?

I came up with the name of this blog after a few minutes of typing in random things and finding all of them taken. (It's as if everyone in the world is just making up blogs names and URLs and just abandoning them - who does that?!?) Before long, my mind began quoting my favorite movie, as it often does. "When Harry Met Sally" has so much great dialogue, I quickly thought through some of my favorite quotes. But, I passed on all of them and settled instead on just copying the name itself.

So, what follows are the tales of what happened after L met M.  I hope you enjoy.

Until we met again....
