Isn’t Fall the best…

A ocllection of fall pumpkins and leaves

Fall decorating, crafts and

recipes are the best.  It’s getting

colder outside, the leaves are falling,

and we begin to prepare for the colder

months and getting ready for the holidays.

Nature becomes beautiful with all the colors, the air becomes crisp, the breeze starts to blow and the leaves are now falling to the ground.

Don’t get me wrong…..I LOVE SUMMER, it’s great.  But there is something really special about fall.

I saw this on Pinterest today,  Thanks to  www.blessedarethefeet.com/give-every-day-shine/     new-year It struck home that  I need to set goals for my blog for the brand spankin new, sparkly, do-over, blank canvas, full of promise, and hopeful NEW YEAR!!                                                            GOALS!!                                                    You could think of goals as a recipe for your success? There are short term, and long term goals.  Goals are written to carry out or attain a desired outcome.  They will most likely need to be modified, reviewed and most likely will be changed once, twice, maybe more or if you are lucky maybe less.  I love this graphic because of all its ideas of how you can improve or change your goals.
