Happy Monday!

Whew! It's hard to believe that yet another month is about to collapse. This is truly the beginning of the part of the year I enjoy the most, though. The crispier weather, the magical moments had around the Holidays with family and friends. There's nothing quite like this time of the year.

I had the lovely opportunity to take in some breathtaking fall folliage on Thursday though. Okay, it wasn't "take in" as much as glimpse as as the airplane I was on whirled by. But I still saw more bits of yellow, gold and red than I'd ever had before. Absolutely gorgeous.

I had a wonderful time at the RWA's NJRW Conference the past few days. The lovely ladies of that chapter know how to throw a conference for sure. Meeting so many wonderful people has never been quite so simple--now I can only hope all those names swimming around in my head choose to stay tagged to the proper face for the next time I see everyone. :)

What about you? What did you do this weekend?

'Tis Almost The Season

Wow! Can you believe it's October already?

The crispier, dark mornings have crept into Austin, even though I can't believe it's almost winter again. And with the encroaching colder weather comes....

Shopping!

Every year I vow to get a jumpstart on my Christmas and Holiday shopping. No matter my good intentions, something seems to encroach on my carefully constructed plan and leave me where I always am--frantically dashing through the aisles shoveling whatever I can into my cart in a harried frenzy of determination. This year I won't be buying gifts on Christmas Eve.

Before Christmas though I have two birthdays in my family, and one for my best friend. My friend's birthday is this month, just a few days away from Halloween. (Might I say it's quite difficult not to tease her about this every year...hehe).

My brother's is in November. He was a Turkey baby. So, does anyone have gift ideas for a technically inclined man?
