Time flies by and often we take each day for granted. I am doing my best to remind myself that every day and eveyr season is a gift, and that we should really enjoy each to their fullest.
I will admit, of all the seasons, this is the one I liked the least; the only thing that made it somewhat tolerable was Halloween. Then I found these, and now, it is growing on me. 🙂
These images give me the warm and fuzzies. I forgot how much fun Fall can be.
What do I love about Fall? First and foremost I would say Halloween. Next in line would be the apple picking, pumpkin carving, warm apple cider or tall cups of hot chocolate, snuggling on chilly nights, watching the leaves turn from green, to red, to orange, candy apples, and so much more.
So what do you love about Fall?
I’m not talking about the “I’m running a little late” kind of stress, but rather the eyes bulging, teeth grinding, pain in your chest kind of stress. You know the kind of stress that arises when every possible thing that can go wrong does go wrong and you are terrified to say “what’s next” because you know it is only a matter of time before that get’s added to your list. Or maybe it’s just me. 😉
Yes my friends, at this moment I feel like I am buried under an avalanche of crap and this is how I’m handling it…
So as I indulge in yet another chocolate covered sanity snack, I find myself thinking how can I handle this without sliding down the slippery slope into a “why me” pity party.
I can honestly say I didn’t realize just how bad stress is for you.
Wow right?! Things can really get a whole lot worse if you don’t deal with the stress in your life. Personally, I think the first step is to acknowledge that you are stressed and identify what your stressors are. Not dealing with the little stressors in your life lead to the avalanche effect that can quickly overcome you.
Here are two quotes that I just loved so I printed them off and now keep them by my computer.
So, how do you handle stress? And just in case you didn’t know….
I’m just sayin.. 😉
With Halloween just around the corner, nights getting chilly and the smell of Fall hanging in the air, I long to cozy up under a warm blanket, sipping on a hot cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate/apple cider or whatever warm beverage I may have at that time and enjoy the changing of the seasons.
There is this UBER cute quilt shop by me so decided to pop in and take a look at what they my have for Fall. This casual browsing quickly turned into a paparazzi event where I just couldn’t stop myself from snapping pictures of all the beautiful material, wall hangings, etc. that filled the shop. So here are some pictures I took for your viewing pleasure.
Once I was able to pull my gaze away from all the fantastic Halloween stuff I turned my lens to all the other beautiful fabric that filled their walls.
