I always feel that the 1st of any month is a great way to start new things, 
November is my most favorite month of the entire year!

It must be a coincidence or something that I was born this month huh?

This month is going to be full & busy, just the way I love it!

business rebranding
(love the new blog design?? thanks dana!)
watch for new product packaging to roll out in the next few weeks too

new lifestyle changes
including this post I wrote about here and my husband getting another promotion at work 
which again means more traveling (this time to australia!) 
& figuring out how to get me prego when he isn't here haha <--- for reals.

holiday markets
will be in full swing and I will be making my 1600 round trip journey
for the queen bee market .. and I promise its totally worth it!

this month to celebrate my birthday & the upcoming holidays will be a little different,
I want to do a giveaway for someone that really deserves it.
so look for a unique post where you will be nominating a person instead of entering a contest,
just in time for that special person to get a whole lot of holiday swag!

my week {in photos}
has been so fun and I want to get you more involved
(view weeks 1 & 2) so starting friday I hope you link up your week!

tutorials on crafts, beauty & cooking
are posts that i want to have featured much more here on the blog, 
so look for more new fun series, photo tutorials and realistic ideas for you to try on your own.

There is probably more stuff that I'm totally forgetting, but I hope you enjoy all the new things
I have planned for around here to share with you...
& Happy November!

I went there for three weeks when I was 17; I can't believe it has been six years since then. And I like your blog design! Dana does some awesome work. I'm working on redoing mine too, and I hope to have it up later this week.

    Best of luck to you, your husband, and the start of your family!
