Dear October, please don’t surprise me. I barely survived September and I really just want to get into the holiday spirit this month without any surprises.

Mmkay. Thanks.

Please tell me I am not the only one that feels that way?!

I really am looking forward to this month and the months to follow. It truly is my favorite time of the year!

September is typically my ‘holiday planning’ month. I get out my holiday binder and put some time and effort into planning ahead so I can be present and fully embrace the holiday season.

I try to review everything from costumes, outfits, meals, gifts to bucket list activities. I use planning sheets I created and they help me set the tone for a thoughtful and joy filled season.

Would you want to have access to these holiday planning sheets? If yes, let me know! Shoot me a message on instagram.

Maybe I can get you a free download or have the entire packet available in the shop this month?

September was a whirlwind so I didn’t get to spend much time on my holiday planning!

I had my my women’s retreat in Tulum, Mexico (it was absolutely incredible by the way), my social media planning day (also amazing with sooo many great ah ha moments), moving into our new office space and just life as we navigated another round of chemo for my husband so I didn’t get to dive into these as much as I would have liked. So this week I have set aside time to do more holiday planning.

Speaking of Clayton, he is doing very well. I truly appreciate all the messages and texts from you asking about us. We landed in the ER last Friday but got to come home today and after a few blood transfusions and a zillion tests, he is feeling good and preparing for round five of chemo next week. Keep those prayers coming! We are weary yet hopeful and uplifted by everyone supporting us and cheering for us! 

I want to share a few upcoming things and then I will give you all the goodies for October!

First up, I have only 3 spots left for the retreat in Seaside, Florida. I would love for you to check out the details and let me know if you want to join an amazing group of women! We are going to kick off 2020 with intention and it’s going to be the perfect way to start the new year.

Go see the details here and let me know if you can join me. I know these last few spots will get taken, let me know if it will be you!


On the same note as travel, did you know that I can help you book your next trip? I have increased my travel bookings this year and would love to help you plan a memorable trip!!

I love to travel and I love helping others with the perfect itinerary. So if you are thinking of a winter escape or planning your spring getaway, let me know how I can help!

If you missed my social media planning day, I put a new resource in the shop you can use called the “5 Steps to a Thoughtful Social Media Marketing Plan”. This includes over 200 prompts you can use to connect with your audience and has a lot of information to help you in planning your social media marketing.

I am also including free downloads for each month so you can print and plan out your social media for every day of the month. You can get these here on my website.

And last but not least, this week I am launching a NEW product in the shop just in time for Christmas! YOU inspired this special box and I have loved all the feed back!!


Who is ready for help with their ELF this year?! I am happy to say that this year I have you covered. They went on sale the beginning of this month and will only be sold through November so make sure to get your order in quickly!

As a newsletter family member you get these two items BEFORE anyone else but I like to share here on the blog after they have been released to my tribe.

The FIRST, is each month I will provide a list of fun reasons to celebrate randomly. Whether you are a mom looking to add some fun with your kids or your a small business owner and want to use them for social media prompts, this list is for sure to bring you added joy this month!! Here are your FREE downloads for October. Make sure you include #celebraterandomly in your hashtags!

The SECOND, is for every bucket list month, I will send you the bucket list. I love the beginning of our Fall Bucket Lists and the activities for October kick it off nicely! Here is your October Bucket List.

I hope you are looking forward to October, the arrival of Fall and the holidays as much as I am!

Next month I am planning a floral workshop where we can learn how to make holiday floral arrangements, a little holiday shopping and of course yummy treats!
