happy october!

October 1, 2010


While it's always sad to say goodbye to summer, I couldn't be more excited that it's October! October is my favorite month. It's the start of cooler temperatures, the changing of leaves, darker evenings and the precedent for the holiday season! It's crazy to think there are only three more months left to this year! It went by quickly, didn't it? Some personal goals of mine are to start getting back to the gym {it's sadly been a mostly workout-free summer}, drinking more water, making more time for my personal writing, and to photograph the little things! Do you have any little/big goals for the rest of 2010?


Tonight Matthew and I are going to order some yummy pizza from our favorite place, do some more wedding venue research {it seems endless} and hopefully watch a movie! Oh and I'm so looking forward to celebrating my Hanna's birthday tomorrow night! I hope you all have some fun things planned this weekend, too!

If you missed it earlier, make sure to enter the giveaway for the awesome Oufi bag!

Happy October and happy weekending!!

  1. it's hard to believe that it's already october! i completely agree with you that the year has flown by...
    did you take those photos? so pretty.
    i like going to burbank in october and november - the leaves at my mother in laws house are so big and colorful... it doesn't always feel like fall, but at least it looks like it!
    enjoy your pizza and your weekend :)

  26. My plans for the rest of the year (what little is left) are to hit the gym harder than I have all year (I've been a bit meh about it and have only been going haphazardly), take all my medications every day and not just when I feel like it (oops!), make more time for artistic ventures like journalling and photography, and get my Christmas shopping done early!

  37. mara! i've been totally out of the loop the past few weeks with my wedding and honeymoon so i never got to say this before, but... CONGRATULATIONS!!! i'm so excited for you guys and i can't wait to see what you come up with for your wedding. i can totally relate to having to deal with outrageous california venue prices. people were telling me that locations were only 10-12k, like that was a steal. as soon as you use the word "wedding" people go nuts with prices. but you two are very creative and i'm sure you'll make it gorgeous while saving some pennies (which will also make it more meaningful i think). hooray for love! :)

  38. I'm excited for October too!! It's Halloween...and oh yea....it's my birthday month!! Woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  39. hey gorgeous, I've been away from the blog for a few weeks and what an amazing thing to come back to: your engagement. I couldn't be any happier for the both of you. It makes me so glad to see a couple who are really in love.
