Not only is today Halloween, but it also marks the last day in October. Another month has come to an end. I always feel a bit nostalgic on these days. Like something important is concluding. Do you agree? Yet, at the same time, I like these days for the sole purpose of being able to sum up the entire month of blogging.
While 30 days may not seem very long ago to most people, to a blogger who publishes 5 posts a week, it feels like a lifetime. No longer do our previous posts seem relevant, as we are typically already planning an entire month in advance.Thus, something that we posted one month ago, in actuality, is really two months ago in our minds. A lot can happen in two months!
That being said, let’s finally discuss what did happen in October.
Next, I described the big changes that I’ve gone through emotionally this summer, as well as dealing with Holly’s health problems and being able to witness the self-effacing beauty in a dog’s own strength and will to survive.
Speaking of food, my husband was October’s guest blogger and he made the most delicious Butternut Squash Pasta.
It wouldn’t be a successful month without including at least one home design idea. Here is my reigning kitchen concept.
This was probably the most that I’ve ever blogged about The Little Barn as well. I showed you our roof, siding, and appliances in these posts. I also discussed the idea of a dream home and you guys had some really amazing and insightful advice on the topic.
On a rare evening out, we were able to see the film Pulp Fiction in theatres. What a great night that was!
Of course, Halloween also occurred this month. I began by showing you the cutest pumpkin DIY, not to mention 10 scary film choices, a healthy holiday treat, a makeup tutorial, and finally, our costumes for that night (tonight, in fact).
