Celebrating...October

Hello dolls!!  Happy October!!  Can you believe how fast this year has gone?  We are in the final quarter and I feel like the year just started.  But alas...we've saved the best for last.  I mean, the three biggest celebrations of the year are upcoming...Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas (and New Years)...LET THE CELEBRATING BEGIN!!! 

Surely we are all ready for the major celebrations, but I am here to help you look around and discover the little things to be celebrated.  Things like the leaves turning their fabulous shades for autumn, or unpacking your cozy, warm sweaters, and football, and caramel apples (you knew I had to throw something food in, right?). 

If you need some help coming up with things to celebrate, here's some ideas for you:
  • October is adopt a shelter dog month, so if you can go out and get a new friend
  • October is also financial planning month---a great time to start thinking of all of the trips you want to take next year
  • We all should know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  If you haven't already, make sure you have your annual breast exam...and be a friend and take a friend too!
  • My favorite is October is Positive Attitude Month
  • And food related...October is National Chili Month and National Popcorn Poppin' Month
This is enough to get you started...you'll just have to keep checking back for more things to celebrate this month.  Or feel free to send me your ideas...

But before I go, I'd like to celebrate an important anniversary with you... sixty one years ago a famous icon was born...and here it is... 
Peanuts premiered in 8 newspapers, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Minneapolis Tribune, The Allentown Call-Chronicle, The Bethlehem Globe-Times, The Denver Post, The Seattle Times, and The Boston Globe as a daily strip and featured Charlie Brown, Shermy and Patty  And as they say...the rest is history!

Happy October!!!

Luv Ya!!
