right now | october 2014

In my mind, October is always the calm before the storm. There are the beautiful colors of the changing leaves here in the mountains, the weather is most often still beautiful and warm and breezy.

November brings lots of planning. 

Planning for the two November birthdays for the kids. 
Planning for Thanksgiving at our house. 
Planning for the Christmas celebrations ahead.

Here's the post where I share how I created my mini book.

  1. are the blue tin cookies the danish ones? i love these. specially the swirl ones.
    how do you like your new phone? i think the 6+ is a little to big for my liking. i jokingly call it the "ipad nano". haha.

    1. Yes, those are the cookies! The 6+ is good for my poor eyes, but a bit big for a phone. But, since I rarely use it as a phone, all is good! I love it!

  2. OOOH! The IPhone 6! You'll have to let me know what you think!
