Remember back at the beginning of this month when I declared I would be doing Blogtemember?

Clearly, that lasted all of two days, and now October is almost upon is!

But on the bright side, it reminded me that I love blogging in fall. Is that weird; to love blogging during a certain season? If so, I'm okay with that. If you know me at all, you know that I love this season a great deal.  And with that said, I feel that a "currently" post is totally warranted due to the lack of posts and the aforementioned love of fall. 

Currently...I'm reading Anne of Green Gables for the first time and absolutely loving it. 
I think I tried a few times when I was younger, but for some reason, 
couldn't really appreciate how delightful it truly is. 

Currently...I'm not sure how I went so long without getting a Ben Rector album, but I am so glad that's changed! Love his voice and lyrics so much. 

Currently...Loving the abundant amount of pumpkin flavored items!

Currently...I am not a Halloween person, but I am stoked for the dogs to wear these! 


I know a lot of people here in North Carolina didn’t love the fact we didn’t have a "true" summer…I am not one of these people. I love it wasn’t sweltering and dry for months. And I love that the windows can be opened before October.

Something I am really striving for this season, is not to be overwhelmed by life. It's so easy for me to get wrapped up in all the things that need to get done or all the things I want to do.  And before I know it, I've put so much focus on those things, I completely over look the simple, beautiful fact that have more than I could ever need; and the things that need to get done, will get done. Anything else can wait. 

One thing, albeit small, I've been trying to do each day, when I take the dogs out, is to take a deep breath in and just be still for a moment. In that moment, I feel peace. That's what I am striving for each day.

I need to take pause more to just thank God. Whether I’m thanking him for the in my face blessings or the blessings in disguise, it just needs to happen.

Love this-- I may need to get that CD too! Never heard of him before.

What a good idea, to take a deep breath and really feel at peace when you take the dogs out. It's a great time to be intentional about doing that. Praying for your week!
