Showing posts with label September

Even though August was so very hot and humid here in middle Tennessee, it turned out to be a great month for me and my family. I'm hoping all that good will continue as we welcome September and my eleventh year of blogging here. To start the month off on a high note, I've partnered with the Review Wire Media team again to bring you a $200 e-Gift card to Target. Read on to learn more.


Hello September!


Hello September Acorn and leaves

I can hardly believe it is the last day of September! I just had to share a Wordless Wednesday post to end the month on a pretty note.

One of the reasons we fell in love with this property years ago was because we came to view it on a later September afternoon much like this one.


My WAHM Plan: Nature walk on our land

Look at all the lush grass and greens calling you to come explore! Taking nature walks with my family is one of the best perks of living in the country.



On this recent, beautiful afternoon, my girls and I were captivated by the September sunlight, mild on our faces and beautiful when seen through the leaves of the trees.

We admired how it turned our pond into a beautiful mirror of light and reflection.

We stayed in this spot the longest. Transfixed by the sights and sounds of nature, lost in companionable silence. Breathing in the moment. Adding another memory to our book of life.


Happy Wordless Wednesday dear readers!

Color of the Month- September -Cocoa Brown

I can't wait for the seasons to finally change and I can get my true fall on at home and here on the blog. I was looking through some past fall photos and found this beautiful metal Sunflower and just loved the perfect cocoa brown center, so it became my inspiration for this months color!

September finds me shifting gears

Happy September dear readers. Fall is almost here, can you feel it? I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing Labor Day weekend and hope you did too.

I needed to relax, because my August zoomed right on past me with a full plate of work, family and school activities leaving very little time to fret about the state of my blog.


But fret I did. 


See, in the blogging world, August was a really bad month for me. Truth be told, the whole summer was bad. And while I had originally thought I would share all the details with you because the devil is in the details; ultimately I decided on a condensed version.

So here goes: I had my na├»ve little bubble popped and was schooled on how blogging and networking with the big girls and boys really goes down. 

From buying Twitter followers to ghost writers, to whole teams churning out content and then sharing it  24/7, I have had my eyes opened.  I naively thought that some of the bloggers I aspired to be like actually wrote most of their content or at the very least, shared their own Pinterest pins. But no, most of them hire others to do that.

I’m not saying all bloggers are doing this, and I’m not saying that outsourcing and delegating are bad - I’m saying I don’t want to do this to be a professional blogger. I don’t have the time or the money to feed the blogger beast. 

So, now what you say?


I’m totally taking the pressure of myself and my little blog that could by adding another income stream. One I know from past experience works well for me, Avon. 


Yep! I’m an Avon lady! 


Shop my store

I just rejoined on the 28th of August and on the 29th I got my first order! Now that is a positive ROI (return on investment) I can handle.

 I won’t change things up too much here on the blog, but I will share a product of the week with you.

 If you have been thinking of adding a new income stream, I invite you to join my Avon team. You can read more about it here. It’s only 10 dollars to join and I know lots of Bloggers who are also in direct sales. Inbox me at 4lkinsatgmaildotcom with any questions you may have or fill out my contact form here


I hope September finds you safe and secure financially and otherwise. But if you are discontent, I urge you to take out a pen and paper and plot a change of course. September is the perfect time of year for new beginnings.
