One of my favorite things is fall in Evanston, IL.
Josh and I had some time to kill between the ceremony and reception at Kate and Matt's wedding and we may or may not have done a little impromptu photo shoot outside of my old home - Alpha Phi.

I loved fall at college and I love fall now. That is partly because my birthday is this month and partly because fall seems like a new beginning. New year of school for kids, new leaves for the trees, and a new season to enjoy.

Every time I go back to campus at NU I get weepy.
I am one of those wonderful nerds who LOVED college.
I met some of my best friends there and I grew into the woman I am supposed to be.
Northwestern made me who I am.

So, here I am.

Wearing Allison's dress. Thanks Al!

Josh was such a good sport! And so handsome!

And some good ol' self timer on the quad.

Just a quick note... these are the au natural photos. To see the fancy, edited ones, click here.

And please stop back by tomorrow for my surprise birthday post!

Linking up with the beautiful Katie today.
