I literally don't know where August and September went. It's already October!
I love fall - the cooler weather, football, fall decor...it all makes me smile!
That being said, here are a few of my favorite things from this gorgeous fall month:
As of last week, I had one hat that I acquired somehow over the years (I didn't buy it either; somehow it just came into my possession!). I wore that hat all summer long while walking, working out, or running errands. With hair as long as mine, sometimes I just love throwing on a hat to cover up a bad hair day! Plus, while walking, it also protected my face from the sun. However, I did just order a nicer, all-white (yes, I'm brave!) hat from Lululemon this past week. I have yet to wear it, but I love how pure and white it looks sitting on my dresser!
2. Daily Mass
I've been attending daily mass a few times a week at a church that isn't too far from my apartment or work. It's with the school children too, and I've found that I love the beautiful children's choir that sings, as well as the simple homilies that the priests give each mass. They are easy to understand and help start my day on a positive note!
3. Diffusing Essential Oils
I bought an essential oil diffuser a few weeks ago, and have been diffusing doTerra lavender during the day and at night. Lavender essential oil is great for calming the body and mind, which is something I need on a regular basis! I also love how it helps keep my apartment from smelling like food all the time!
4. White Shoes
I mentioned my new white hat above, but I also received some new white shoes for my birthday a few weeks ago. I'm doing my best to keep them clean and white because I love how bright they are on my feet, especially since my daily uniform consists of gray, black, and my red work shirt. Plus, they are also a closer fit to my foot, so they don't make my feet look huge like most shoes do! #bigfeetproblems
Otherwise, I'm loving fall, and I can't wait for the rest of the season! I wish it would stay for a while before giving way to winter, but in Nebraska, there's no guarantees for that!
