one thousand gifts

little moments and big dreams [344-372]

It’s the beginning of October. I’m feeling an incredible high from the amazing, inspiring weekend I spent in Alabama and the fact that my favorite month is here — which means more pumpkins, apple cider, and scarves to come. October is going to be a great month. I can feel it. So excited! This list seems rather short for 2-3 weeks worth of life (since my last update), but I was busy living and forgot to stop and write. No more excuses, though. I’m writing everything down from here on out and putting my all into life.
