It’s already November! As I enter into this month, I want to be intentionally grateful. Today, I am grateful for last month. October was a blast! I welcomed the month with open arms, knowing it would be filled with great times with family, friends, and obviously, food. As I reflect on the month, I cannot help but smile at the memories…and crave some more of that homemade chili & cornbread. Outside the leaves are just about to peak in color, and inside, my home smells of “Spiced Cider” and “Autumn Apple.”
-Decorated home: autumn.
-Making homemade chili with cornbread, cheese, & BBQ chips atop!
-Catching up with Helen (college roommate) at the “So You Think You Can Dance” tour!
-Having Chris come visit Duke and Wake Forest and visiting with him.
-Making some “spice cake” cupcakes with candy corn on top.
-Exploring Charleston, SC and reconnecting with family (and self as I sat on the beach!)
-Having a picnic with Rene.
-Writing October’s date as “10-__-10.” (Wasn’t it fun to write?!)
-Painting my nails orange with a spider on my thumb. Sp0Oo0O0oky.
-Doing well on my midterms.
Ah, indeed. October, thank you for your grace & beauty. I do not know what November holds but I do know who holds November. Praying that this new month is filled with purpose, surprise, and overwhelming gratitude.
