Despite the fact that the temperature reached the triple digits today (insert expletive here), I am so thrilled that it’s finally October.
The way I see it, October is perfectly positioned between the long, hot days of summer and the frenetic but always fun holiday madness. The Halloween / Thanksgiving / Christmas excitement is starting to brew, but not enough to overwhelm my to-do list. The sun begins to set earlier and earlier. The weather (knock on wood) cools down and entices me to spend more time outdoors. The leaves on the trees begin to change colors. Three words: pumpkin spice lattes. Three more words: boots, scarves, sweaters.
But the very best part of all is that (historically speaking) this is the time of year when my creative mojo shoots through the roof. Last night I downloaded the app Teux Deux on my iPhone and instantly filled the “Someday” section with several projects that I want to try, products that I want to make, and photos that I want to take. I also began to make a list of goals for myself, including waking up earlier, staying organized, going to yoga more often, drinking more tea instead of coffee, saving up to buy a new camera, etc. My brain was shooting off ideas faster than my fingers could type (which is the very best kind of problem to have)! I can’t wait to dig in…
