October is such a beautiful month, isn’t it? I love the excitement that revolves around the changing leaves, pumpkins, and fall flavors. It is a much welcomed change, especially when it comes to the heat. I won’t miss it one bit! It’s finally time to break out the scarves and boots. Yay!
So I’ve been hosting this coffee date linkup for over over a year and a half, and it has been such a joy! I’ve met so many sweet bloggers that have turned into friends through this linkup. I’ve also seen this linkup go through lots of good changes. That said, I think it’s time for something new around here! This is going to be the last coffee date linkup for 2015. I’m going to be brainstorming some creative ideas and will hopefully have a new fun linkup ready for the start of the new year.
Anyways, let’s have some coffee this morning and catch up! October has been a whirlwind, so I really want to see what you’ve been up to. First I’ll share some of my highlights, then I want you to linkup your recent life-lately post or share your update in the comments below!
Like I said, October has been crazy. I’ve had some really fun times in October so far, but I’m also very exhausted. I’ve had weddings and events every single weekend this month, which is truly a blessing! However, I’m still teaching full time. So I work basically 24/7, which isn’t very good for my body and soul. I am craving rest, so I’m thankful that we are getting out of town this weekend for a camping weekend with some sweet friends of ours. Oktoberfest, here we come!
Some of my favorite moments from October…
-Attending the Maiedae Mixer and providing the florals
-Weekend weddings–can’t wait to share the flower photos!
-Surprising the student that I mentor with sweet prizes and crafts. Seeing this little one’s face light up when I pull him out of class for a few minutes is priceless!
-I made a mini hot air balloon…out of flowers! It was amazing and little kids sat in it. My heart was so full. (Oh, and speaking of hot air balloons. Three years ago tomorrow marks the anniversary when Lamar proposed to me 3,000 feet up in a hot air balloon!)
Things to look forward to for the rest of October…
-Camping this weekend and visiting wineries with Lamar, Daniel, and Mary Hannah. Can’t wait!
-So I finally decided on my Halloween costume for the party we are going to next weekend. It’s a surprise, and there will definitly be an Instagram reveal, so stay tuned!
