November’s BIG list

This past month FLEW by! Goodness gracious, it’s like one day it was September and I was picking apples, and the next I am romping through a pumpkin patch and wearing a coat. October has long been my favorite month in Connecticut and, despite the fact that I didn’t plan well and was gone 3 weeks of October, the leaves held out for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the last week of the month, full of vibrant colors and fiery trees. My October BIG list, however, took a bit of a hit. Going into last month, I knew that my goals were a bit audacious, considering the amount of traveling I was doing. Needless to say, I didn’t get to cross everything off that I wanted to, but thats ok, cause they can just roll over to this month! November is one that I am excited about. I wrap up my wedding season with 3 weddings, all of clients whom I adore. I will be going to Colorado by myself, for the first time, and am going to work my tail off to market and network for my glamour brand of photography. It’s the month that I get to decorate for Christmas, and can have Christmas music on all day without Adam asking me to turn it off (for some strange reason he doesn’t like it on in August. The nerve!). And it’s the month where I challenge myself to find one thing every day that I’m thankful for. Indeed, this month will be good. And here’s the list that will make it so…..
