October: 10-on-10 | Kansas City Family Photography

It’s already October. It’s my favorite month of the year. Fall is officially here.  I figure it’s about time to do a “this was our summer” type of post. Am I too late for that? I think maybe this unrelenting rain we’ve had for the last 4+ days might have some people wishing for summer sun again so, here. I’ll bring it to you in virtual form.

At the end of the school year this last spring I shared our Summer Bucket List. I don’t know that I ever intended to check everything off that list. Well, I probably had great dreams and ambitions that maybe we would, but in reality, I knew we never could. Summer moves fast. We like to just relax and enjoy the break from routine; free from the schedule and rush to be everywhere. I did want a list so that I could at least attempt to get us out and exploring a little bit and we certainly did that.

Some would say I failed at my bucket list. I’ll admit, I was a little disappointed in myself for not checking more things off, but now that we’ve had some separation from summer, looking back, I think we had a pretty successful summer. We all survived, so that should be success enough. Looking through our summer pictures, though, I realized we did make some lifelong memories.

So, for our October 10-on-10 blog circle I thought I’d share with you my 10 favorite images {in chronological order} from this summer. And, as it turns out, they are associated with some of my favorite memories we created, as well. I guess I should call that a great success since capturing memories and meaningful moments is what I claim to do best, lol! And bonus, all three of my babies are in all 10 of these images ❤
