Hey y’all! Sorry this post is super late! I was thinking that work at the campground would start to slow down but this month has been our busiest yet!! That, combined with a trip to Virginia, and increasingly crappy internet has me not posting as frequently!
October is one of my favorite months. This October has been a bit strange though because temperatures here in middle Tennessee do NOT feel like fall. Most of this month has been in the mid 80’s which doesn’t help you get into the fall spirit! I haven’t let that stop me from daydreaming about Christmas though. For some reason I always start thinking and mentally preparing for Christmas in October. Call me crazy but I love this time of year!! Fall begins and Halloween quickly turns into Thanksgiving which turns into Christmas! October-December always seem to flow together for me to create one long joyous season that is truly my most favorite time of the year. 🙂
October 1, 2016: Thing #98475 that I love about fall, pretty mums. 🙂
October 4, 2016: It may be hot, but I was too anxious to wait for colder temperatures and I had to start breaking in my new fall boots! I love my bean boots!
October 6, 2016: I got this adorable tin from Tia’s Shabby Chic Boutique in Mt. Juliet. If you’re local you must go there! They have the cutest stuff ever, and actually affordable!
October 7, 2016: This is from the tree out front of the campground. Ornamental cherry tree perhaps?? But I’m honestly not sure.
October 8, 2016: This one reminds me of the road I lived off of in Virginia. There was a spot that looked just like this to me, so in my mind, this is that spot. 🙂
October 9, 2016: My new mug shelf is one of my most favorite things about our apartment. I love it so much!!!
October 10, 2016: I wrote a few weeks ago about participating in the gallon a day challenge! Read about that here!! I’m still aiming to drink lots of water but have been averaging about 6-7 water bottles a day instead of 8, but it works for me. Its so good to stay hydrated!
October 11, 2016: Cast iron apple pie!!
October 12, 2016: Low sugar pumpkin cinnamon buns!!! Check out the recipe here!
October 13, 2016: Coffee and daydreaming about Christmas on the porch.. <3
October 14, 2016: Our Thanksgiving turkey will be extra fresh this year. I’m so glad that despite living in an apartment at a campground, I can in some ways “homestead”! One of our employees raises chickens and turkeys right here at the campground and we get to reap some of those benefits! Its a neat community!
October 15, 2016: In addition to mums, I also LOVE goldenrod! I think I used to be allergic because I’d get allergies every fall but I haven’t gotten allergies since moving to TN for some reason. 🙂
