Staush and Colleen and my Wisconsin fall weekend

I can’t get over how cute these two are.

Meet Staush and Colleen.
I first met Staush through my work with Wisconsin TU- he’s on our state council as well. He picked a beautiful antique engagement ring, surprised her at a park, and amidst tears, Colleen said yes! They are planning a beautiful August wedding in Green Bay next year, and we’re really excited to work with them! They both work in politics, so an election-year engagement session was hard to schedule, but they came all the way over to Rib Mountain to hang out with us.

Congratulations, guys! 🙂
We had dinner Friday night with my other BFF, Amy, and her handsome fiancé, Chris. They took us out to celebrate our birthdays!

We started our busy Saturday with work in the crawl space under the house, then headed up to Kim’s cancer benefit in Wausau. The beautiful Kim Kuklinski and I went to high school together, and we are all praying for her strong recovery. We donated a photo package to the benefit, so I dropped off my display, bought a lot of tickets for raffles, saw some friends (hi, Alie!)…

…then headed off to the apple orchard to see Amy, Chris, and a few other folks from the wedding party. It was great- Helene’s had live music, several varieties of apples, and rides for the kids.

After a bushel and a peck of apples, we zipped over to the Phares’ super cute house for dinner. Ron and Stacey spoil us! We also got to play with Newton a little bit, too. 🙂

I made a big batch of pink applesauce with the apples from the orchard.

I hope we have enough to last us through the winter! 🙂
As always, thanks for reading, friends.
