But that's not all I'm loving lately! This week's Friday Five v2.0 link up theme is "all about me". It's been a while since I did a loving/not loving post, and so today, I share 5 things that I'm loving but not loving!
How about those Cubs? Yep, I'm loving the win, the hype, the whole hullabaloo! I've been bleeding Cubbie blue since birth. It's been fun watching this team make a run for the big show. Growing up, my sisters and I would go to visit our grandma on her farm and it was always a sure thing that she'd have the Cubs game on! My husband and I have been to more Cubs games than I can remember. We have so many great memories of Wrigley Field, even when the Cubs were losing. What I'm not loving is that we were unable to get tickets to any games this year. We could have bought tickets from ticket brokers, but the markup on the tickets was obscene. Next year...
I'm not loving that we are in the month of November. The days are getting shorter and the trees are dropping their leaves. Winter is around the corner and I'm not looking forward to that! The Farmers' Almanac predicted a long cold winter with snow by Halloween. To paraphrase a certain presidential candidate, WRoNG! What I am loving is our mild fall. It was 73F on Tuesday this week and has been in the 60Fs since. But according to Accuweather, we in the Midwest are going to see the retreat of our mild weather by the end of the month and December is going to be snowy. Let's see how that goes. I'm ready for anything Mother Nature throws at us.

It's been 6 months since my youngest son broke his leg playing rugby. It was back in May, only one week after we came home from our "not a second honeymoon". I was still on my post-Big Sur marathon high when he was tackled on the rugby field and sustained a tibial spiral fracture. The incident revealed a tibial bone cyst which eventually required a bone graft for the leg to properly heal. It's been a long journey and we were not loving the length of time it has taken for him to recover. He's been rehabbing the leg with Becky (my coach) and this week, he was cleared by the orthopedic surgeon to return to all sports! He hit the ground running (literally) and I am loving seeing my son so happy again.
I'm linking up with Rachel, Meranda, and Lacey for the Friday Five 2.0!
