Yep, time is going to fly. So let’s sllooooow it down a notch and enjoy every moment of this season.

Welcome to 31 Days: Inspired for the Holidays

Have no fear! In this series I’ll be sharing 31 days of simple and creative ideas you can use this year. We’ll be inspired from Fall to Christmas. Traditions to Decor.

Just a little thought that panicked me today, by the time this series is over, it will be NOVEMBER! Yeah. That is scary on many levels. Ladies, you know you need to stick with me here. We need to rally the troops and get our fall & holiday groove on.

And I have something fun to announce during this series too, so stay tuned!! YAHOO! Fun is GOOD!
