Fall mood boosters and trying a little something new...

Welcome back loves! I don't know about you guys but this week has been pretty long and looking back at this months blog post topics, my month has been a little bleh (for lack of a better word). Settling back into the school routine took longer then I expected; my sleep schedule is laissez-allez and still can't quit the late-night grilled cheese habit! But nonetheless, I'm still grateful for everything else. My family, my bed, a safe neighbourhood, the weather, access to education, sweaters, access to technology, pumpkin loaves, yellow nail polish, hugs, supportive folks, oh and a new month. Feel better? Good. Psst for every horrible thing/thought try finding two positive things/thoughts. Well back to the new month thing. I get very ecstatic about things like a new week, month and the new year of course. I live for, but don't wait for, the marking of a new start to ditch or commence a new habit, routine or train of thought. I get all Monica Geller about reorganizing, decluttering, planning and such. So I decided to kickstart the month with a new start not only in my life but on my blog. I'm super excited to record a podcast to share with you and ramble on about everything! So if this isn't displeasing grab a cup of tea, a bullet journal, a broom, a bike or whatever you need when listening to content and bare with me...
