November- A month of Thanks

The year is winding down. It’s exciting and scary at the same time. Exciting being that the holiday season is coming up but also scary to think that the year has gone by so quickly. November is a month to take time to think about what you are thankful for. It’s a time for gratitude. But it’s also a time to have some fun…. November is National Pomegranate Month, Peanut Butter Lover’s Month, Vegan Month. It’s also a time to better communicate with people, esp during  World Communication Week (Nov 1-7). Or You can study up on your geography during Geography Awareness Week (Nov 14-20).

Never a dull moment during November,and it all kicks off with…

October- Fall Into Fun

As much as I LOVE the summer I am really starting to come around to early fall. October is when the leaves are changing into beautiful bright colors, cider is available everywhere, cider donuts are in season and their sweet, sugar flavors have me hooked, and it’s when I get a little crazy buying a lot of pairs of tights. But besides that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While I think all those walks are kinda pointless- don’t waste money on crews to clean up your discarded water cups, but just donate $$$ directly to the cause- I strongly believe that there are special days and months to remember things that make you happy or helping others  behappy. So remember October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and Cookie Month. And don’t forget all these daily weird/fun/wacky celebrations…
