Welcome to October 2017! Hard to believe how quickly this year has flown by. It seems like it gets faster and faster each year. I remember being a kid and feeling like it took forever for Christmas to arrive and now, as an adult, it feels like one minute we’re celebrating the New Year and the next, we’re getting ready for the holidays again.
Today, it’s a gorgeous 73 degrees here along North Carolina’s Crystal Coast and it couldn’t be prettier. It’s a great day to get outside and enjoy the sunshine before the weather begins to turn cooler.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy the weather where you are. October’s going to be a great month! If you’re looking for a few new topics to write about on your blog, these upcoming National Holiday’s will be the fun inspiration you can use to keep things going.
