It'Sec Show And Tell Time For September

Autumn months are my favorite fourth dimension of twelvemonth. It feels more like a new showtime than the over-rated calendar month of Jan does! I hope y'all accept optimism too goals for the months ahead. 

Getting about

My husband in addition to I spent two delicious weeks in Destin , Florida this by month. Although we alive near North Carolina beaches , the Panhandle's saccharide sand beaches as well as the Gulf'second aqua water called to us. It was relaxing to accept a change of scenery too change of stride , exactly what move should live. Does anyone else experience they have to rearrange just about article of furniture too close to decor items once they settle into a rental condo before she tin can experience at habitation in addition to undistracted by her environs? I only tin can't aid myself!

If yous want to travel the globe inwards your mind from the comfort of dwelling house , y'all mightiness bask these photos of places UNESCO has named earth heritage sites.   

Cheer upwardly

I'thousand ever on the sentinel for things that brand me grin. I believe sense of humor has the power to save us from painful experiences as well as awkward moments. I'm not suggesting that jokes too lightheartedness strength us to ignore reality , but that noticing the irony or surprises inward everyday situations changes our sentiment of the world about us. 

Take a instant to read this mail service about why humor too laughter are of import -- the mental together with physical too social benefits it brings.

Express yourself

Did yous know that y'all tin yet read other Tweets from people , companies , too groups fifty-fifty without an account of your own?

A few months ago I mentioned how I enjoyed using snail postal service to post government note cards. But I didn't refer so that I too prefer using commemorative stamps issued past the the States Postal Service. Since it now prints what'sec called "forever stamps ," yous know they will nonetheless be skilful ongoing for mailing a outset-class letter. I think a particular postage shows y'all gave thought to what you're mailing , and gives yous the run a risk to limited yourself or telephone call attention to a campaign , somebody , or upshot. 

Postage stamps don't toll more than than ordinary ones do in addition to
in that location is an always-changing array of interesting choices.

This calendar month'sec books 

One book that captured my full attending piece on holiday was Shoe Dog , past Phil Knight. The reviews for this volume are excellent , then I know I'1000 not alone inward my admiration for the author , his writing mode , his determination , in addition to his intelligence. He is the founder of Nike , and this book is the storey of how he built his business organisation from i crazy idea he had equally a beau , into an international society worth billions today. It'sec an amazing saga. If you lot are an entrepreneur or know somebody who is (or wants to go ane) I can't recommend this book more than enthusiastically!  

If you lot are on my Christmas listing , don't be surprised if
you lot become this volume from me inward December. 

I absolutely loved a new written in 2014 together with translated from the French. It'sec The Red Notebook , past Antoine Laurain. At less than 200 pages , it follows the sweetness mystery of a shy bookseller trying to locate the possessor of a stolen in addition to discarded bag that contains a pocket-size notebook. Of class , he falls inward dear amongst the owner without knowing who she is or how to observe her.
