Blogtober Recap and Takeaways

The challenge of Blogtober has come and gone. I am pleased to acknowledge my full 31 day participation. This was my main reason to join in on this fabulous Helene and Taylor Link Up, so I feel all elated, like after any good marathon.

This provided me something to look forward to and every night I would try to get my post ready for publishing in the AM. Some nights, well, my bed won the debate, thus causing me to get up and be sure to write a good post at the start of my day. Let me just say, this required a 30 minute earlier than normal wake up time.

There were about 3 topics I didn't know what to say. I remember I went to bed so disappointed when the first prompt that I was like uh-oh, this 31 days straight may not happen because I have nothing to say, occurred. But as any good writer's block happens, it cleared. An "I'll face it in the morning" approach worked in my favor. The post in question, about my funniest memory from childhood, ended up being one of my very favorites. Funny how that works.

I told my self to take the weekend and not write. I needed a rejuvenation. I slept in, worked out, baked, did laundry. I was very lackadaisical and content with enjoying the day as it came, both Saturday and Sunday. We have been extra busy lately with various events between both Hunter and I, so it was needed to soak up some R&R. I even napped on Saturday. Get! Out!

And because it's a Monday, for your entertainment:

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
