Monthly Reflections | October

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections

It's the end of yet another month and it seems that no matter how hard I try to dig my heels in, the days just keep flying by.  I'm doing a few things differently these days, including getting outside to enjoy some fresh air and the beauty that surrounds me.  Tomorrow isn't guaranteed, so I'm living each day like it's my last.

Happy Monday!  It's such a lovely thing to count my blessings of the week past when everyone else is dreading the day and the week ahead.  Gratitude is such an uplifting thing, isn't it?

S'more Pops

Last weekend, I was hanging out with my niece while my sister was at work.  It was a super rainy and dreary day.  The kid and I were watching some tv and talking about making some s'mores, but we couldn't go outside in the pouring rain, so we came up with a solution.

Simple Gratitude | 04

Today I'm sharing my #gratefulheart on the blog #gratitude #feelingthankful

This post is part of the Grateful Heart Monday linkup with Emily at Ember Grey.

It has been such a very long time since I've written a Simple Gratitude post.  I do keep a gratitude journal for daily tracking, but I have slipped on using it for a while.  In all honesty, some events of the past few months have made me bitter and focus on the negative things, but today, I'm turning over a new leaf and getting back into the swing of keeping my eyes on the blessings in my life.

Fall Hashtags I Love

Fall Hashtags I Love - A Simpler Grace
If you are on Instagram, you know how key it is to choose creative hashtags to go along with your images and adequately describe the content you share.  In fact, it is probably the most important thing, secondary to taking clear, sharp pictures.  Whether you are new to hashtagging or are just unsure which tags to use, I am here to offer a little assistance with choosing the perfect fall-inspired tags to use this season.

Fri-yay!  We finally made it!  The weekends at this time of the year always seem to be buzzing with activity, whether school sports or trips to the farmers markets or fall festivals.  I always try to take a few moments to myself on Fridays to relax and recharge so I can jump into the busy weekends with purpose.
