There’s no more denying it, Fall is here. Time to document my chalkboard calendar of memorable events from the previous season, erase it all, and start over fresh. As usual I’m sure I forgot to mark down tons of things. Some off the top of my head, Erica got a puppy, Courtney left for New Orleans for the year, within a month Ann up and sold her house and high tailed it out of DeKalb foreverrrrrr, Matt, Tom and I went to a benefit at the House Cafe, designing new stationery sets and finally getting back into running my shop on etsy again, countless evening walks around the neighborhood to get in my steps, and we started putting up a new mantel (they always evolve over time and I’m sure I’ll be back to reveal more of it soon). Other things on the board I’m sure will make no sense later, things like Flower sunglasses (I ordered Flower Beauty sunglasses).
Things I’m so sad to have to discontinue with the season is exploring and adventuring (hiking, camping, enjoying the outdoors, etc.,) AND of course HAWAIIAN SNO!
Overall, life is pretty great. I feel like I’ve finally turned a leaf and I really believe a lot of that has to do with the fact that I have cancelled Netflix. I always hear parents talk about how dramatic their children transform from little angels to little demons with the exposure of screen time. I’ve been battling my own demon for far too loooooong and now that I have slayed it I am feeling so much better. I honestly believe I am a testament to screen time transformations and that it isn’t just something children suffer from. I’m getting back to my happy and productive self again. I am still on my phone way too much, and I’ll still watch an occasional show or movie here and there, but it’s just not the main time suck and energy drain magnet that I can’t say no to, like it was before.

I’ll be back tomorrow with my Speed round post from this week.
