September In Review

Goodbye September, Hello October! What a crazy but fun month this was for my family and I. We were so fortunate to take several trips this month, we went to the family beach cabin, my husband and I took our first trip away together since Miss E was born and we just got back from Palm Springs and Disneyland! Wow. Now I need a few weeks at home to get caught up on life… and the blog.

Because we were out having fun and building memories, I didn’t finish as many projects this month. But I wouldn’t trade it for the world. That just means you will be seeing A LOT of fun stuff this month. Deal?

So here is a quick look at some of the top posts this month:

Happy Hour Link Party

This month I also kicked off a new link party with Crafty Scrappy Happy and Craftberry Bush! I would love for you to join us every Friday for HAPPY HOUR and get to know other bloggers. We’ve only had three parties so far and I am loving it. I’ve really enjoyed finding ‘new to me’ blogs and I would be so honored to have you join us!

I want to give a huge thank you to my Top 10 Referring Blogs from last month. If you aren’t familiar with any of these sites, you are missing out. Seriously, they are pretty awesome. Please pay them a visit :)
