The response to my Daily Life post last month was phenomenal. It was so great hearing from all of you with suggestions, words of encouragement, and just overall positive feedback during a time I truly needed it. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! YOU, the reader, will forever be the driving force of Tattooed Martha and you continue to prove it to me time and time again.
In addition to all of your lovely messages and comments I also received a little care package from fellow blogger, Amber, of Gypsies Crafts & Treats. She makes amazing handmade cake toppers, garnish sticks, straws, and invitations. She sent along a Sailor Jerry and Halloween themed package that I can’t wait to use in upcoming posts. She even made a cake topper headstone for our car that was recently stolen! Haha we all had a good laugh about that one! Be sure to check out her blog and Etsy store.
Part of the reason behind my slump last month is that I’m always biting off more than I can chew, leaving me feeling discouraged and frustrated when things aren’t happening as fast as I would like. I’ve set some more realistic expectations and goals for myself and life has been running a lot smoother. I have high hopes for the future of this blog and I think you guys will enjoy the changes ahead.
I think you all know that Autumn is my favorite season so I’m trying to take things slow and enjoy every moment.
So far this month I’m..
Halloweenifying (yea, that’s a word now) the house. I’ve dug out all of the Halloween decorations I can find and started a massive list of projects I want to create to add to the Halloween effect. Even Punk has gotten into the spirit.. can you find her?
Drinking every pumpkin beer I can get my hands on.. so far I’ve tried 4 different types and my favorite is Elysian Brewing Punkucchino.. Pumpkin beer + coffee + the name of my cat… Of course I’m going to love it!
Hiking as much as possible. I’m not fond of working out or spending much time at the gym so I’m making it a point to hike more especially during fall. We recently hiked to Punchbowl Falls and I saw several of the trees already turning bright shades of yellow and orange. Of course I forgot my camera so I had to make do with these low quality iPhone photos!
