15 Day Challenge Link-Up: Day 15

Today's the last day of the 15 Day Challenge Link-Up!
Day 15: What were your highs and lows of this past month?

NPS exploration:  I got to visit Crater Lake, the Olympic National Park, and Mt. Rainier this month!
Learning about my new camera: Tim bought me a Nikon D3000 for my birthday last month, and I took a photography class with my mom this month, learning a few tricks to a DSLR.  Let the learning begin!
Granny!  I was so excited to see her and loved our visit!
Blog records!  I've had a record number of people visiting my blog this month, mostly thanks to Sar at [life of love], and to me finally posting my blog on Facebook (I was too shy to post it before!)!  Thanks to Sar's link-up, I've found a few new blogs to read and a few new followers!  Welcome!
...and the great response I had when Tim and I wrote the story of how we met!  Those two posts had the most visits ever, and I received so many nice notes from people who read them!  My favorite was from a co-worker who wrote "I hope to someday write a story like that"  Aww!
Soccer!  Tim's soccer team started up again, and I got to visit with some friends that we haven't had the chance to see much of lately!

Bubbles, chalk, pillows, and more!  This sounds like the start to a Dorthy of Craftland movie, but it's just more hints to upcoming project's I'll be blogging about soon! 

Visiting a friend who has Maltese puppies and finally confirming that I'm not allergic to them.  Plllllleeeeeeeaaaaasssssseeeee Tim????
And lastly, professional advancement!  We had a department meeting yesterday where I was recognized for enthusiastic performance, and given a little token of appreciation.  But more importantly, I've officially decided to go back to school, and I start next quarter!  I'm excited, but nervous at how this change is going to affect our lives.  Thank goodness I have the world's most supportive and encouraging husband ever! 

The biggest let down of the month was when I damaged our hard drive and we lost all our photos, videos, music, and movies.  I'm big on memories and am super disappointed.  It's our fault for not having another back up system, but we've definitively learned our lesson!
Another low? Well to be honest I can't think of any other low's- I did get honked at embarrassingly bad when I was driving home the other day...I was pretty embarrassed and already upset anyways!
Here's to a month of high's in October!
