What I Wore- Church 10-15-17 AND Showing Off My Hometown's Fall Leaves

It is the height of fall in my New Mexico mountains, and I'm loving it!! I know that in a few weeks, it will get really cold and SNOW will come. I've had such a crazy summer that I feel like I haven't had a summer at all so I'm really not ready for winter yet, but I am looking forward to a few cold, snuggly days!!

Here is what I wore to church this Sunday--

It is sometimes hard to know what to wear on these beautiful fall days. I want to embrace the cooler weather, but I'm not ready to pull out the heavy sweaters. One thing that can easily be done is to add a pair of riding boots to your outfit. I did this a lot when I lived in South Texas-- it was the only way to feel like it was fall!!

I bought this dress in College Station, Texas when M was in college there. I stayed with her for her sororities'  (Chi Omega of course!!) Mother\ Daughter weekend. This dress reminds me of that time- plus it is very easy to wear. I love these boots because they are so plain. (similar boots). I just don't think I'll be able to bring myself to wear the over the knee boots that are so popular!!

I had the funniest thing happen in church. I thought this necklace had crept up because I could feel something on my neck towards the end of the church service. When I reached up to move it, I realized it was a bug!!!! Not a little bug either- a medium size bug!! I told Dr. T that he is very lucky that I didn't scream! Wouldn't that have added some excitement to the service? I love this necklace because it is the diamond out of my wedding ring from R. I wear it a lot!! 

Dr. T gave me these earrings for my birthday. I know many people love to go to Taos, NM. These earrings are from Emily Ruffin Goldsmiths in Taos. The shop is close to the John Dunn Shops and prices are really reasonable!! Be sure to stop by there when you are in Taos! 

Dr. T normally plays golf on Sunday afternoons, but his golfing buddy had surgery so he has been home with me. He loves to watch football on these afternoons. I try to keep Sundays holy (set apart). My days are all so much alike since I don't work. I never do cleaning or regular chores on Sunday because I want to keep it a special day. I try to use Sunday afternoons as a time for relaxing and reflecting while reading or watching specific TV shows. A good friend of mine tells of "shoulder to shoulder." She heard about it at a couple's bible study. It is just spending time with your husband without talking. Most men are not big talkers. Being there while he does something he enjoys without me yapping in his ear is important. I've made a point to sit with Dr. T while he's watching the game. I read blogs, magazines, and books because I don't care that much about football. Every so often he will rewind a play so I can see it and we talk about it, but other that, not much is said to each other. 

I read several widowed women's blogs who talk about football season without their husbands. There is such a distinct sound of a football game. Many of these women didn't necessarily watch the game with their husband, but miss the sound terribly now that their husbands are gone. Several have written that they turn a game on just to feel that feeling of having him there watching the game again. 

It really is the little things that make a marriage, a home,... a life!!

How about you? I'd love to hear other "shoulder to shoulder" examples. I'd love to hear how you spend your Sunday afternoons!!
