This past week it has been particularly cooler in Memphis. Granted, it is normally 100 degrees or more ... being in the 70's is a lot nicer. We take Miss P on her morning walk around 6:30 am and it has been downright chilly in the mornings! I know it's just a cold front, but it sure is nice! It makes me so excited for fall. A lot of people say that summer is their favorite season, but mine has always been fall. I was always one of those nerds that was so excited to start school, especially college. I loved college. Those were some carefree times. I loved all of my classes, all of my professors, my friends, being able to go to college football games on Saturdays ... gosh, why does college only last 4 years?!
Rob and I are going to try and make some college football games this year. He graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide) so we are going to try to go to the UK/Bama game in Tuscaloosa. I am excited to see Tuscaloosa since I've heard so much about it from Rob.
Another thing I always loved about fall was the fall meet at Keeneland. For those of you who didn't go to the University of Kentucky, Keeneland is the classy horse racing track in Lexington that has two annual meets- spring and fall. Keeneland is the event in Lexington. Everyone gets dressed up in their Sunday best to go tailgate, socialize, and watch the races. I will definitely be making it back to Lexington for a weekend of Keeneland activities.
This week also celebrates one year ago that I met Rob at law school orientation. He was in my roommate's section and we all met up after orientation and went out. It's so hard to believe that was a whole year ago. Where does the time go? I swear, I can still tell you what I wore to all three days of orientation. Here is a pic of when Rob and I first met:
