Fall Bucket List: Blogtober Day 5!

Well, isn't this just the most precious topic for today! Why, you ask? Because as I sit at my desk talking fall, IT IS 61 DEGREES RIGHT NOW! In Florida!! Ladies and gentlemen, we have officially hit a cold streak!!!! Whoo! Can you tell us Floridians don't get out of the house much without sweating our faces off? It is dreamy and I hope it never ends.

Now, on to the discussion at hand: fall bucket list! I aim to keep it simple this season and take in the beauty of everything fall. I've already organized my scarves and boots, watched Hocus Pocus 4 times, and baking is like breathing to me so it's definitely amped up through this season. Our house is already decked out in our Halloween finest and I seem to have a knack for always finding something more to add in. As for the activities to still accomplish, let's talk.

Things still to do in fall:
1. Open all the windows in the house and sit with my beloved chamomile tea for hours watching the world go by. No tech stuff, no tv on, just me and the world on a date
2. Watch Remember the Titans approximately 7 times
3. Invest in my first cup of white hot chocolate; sorry Pumpkin Spice lovers, ick!
4. Make s'mores with Reese cups instead of Hersey bars
5. Paint/carve pumpkins


There we have it. This is my Fall Bucket List of items to get accomplished. I shall start with number one while the getting is good. Happy Fall y'all!

How I Holiday Decor

I love some holiday decor.  It's fun to mix and match consistent pieces for it and and exciting to switch out the ones that have their set calendar time.  Like my pumpkins for example.  I have a set of them that are used for spooky purposes first, then for grateful hearts right after. Let the record show exhibits ... A and A.5: Halloween goodness           Turkey Day decor   Also, let the record show further exhibits of love for Halloween decorating: B: Witch, please C: Even the tissues have monsters on them Oh and D:   Roni hates us, Pepper giggles, we take far too many pictures of this.   If you couldn't tell, my favorite time of year to decorate is for Halloween.  #givemeallthegoblins   I'm pumped to further enjoy this holiday season with high levels of gratefulness and plan to focus on love and happiness more than anything.  Happy beginning of the end of year holiday season and decorating to you and yours!   Until we me

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w
