Link Love February: Cookie Monster, Mr. Darcy, and the Florida Everglades

Does anyone else feel like February came and went in the blink of an eye? This month has been an especially busy one for me, with a weekend vacation to Tampa and St. Pete, a day of park-hopping at Disney, a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed dinner, the Orlando Apollos launch game, and a trip to Wonderworks, along with a two-week bout of laryngitis. My happiness project is still going strong, and I’m excited to share my recap of Month 2 on tomorrow’s blog. 🙂

Happy October! To me, there’s always something poetic about the first of the month taking place on a Monday. It feels more than ever like the time to begin anew, and I’m excited to see where the month takes us. September was a great month — I spent time with family, celebrated my birthday, checked a few items off my 28 at 28 bucket list, took a mini vacation, made an on-field appearance at a UCF football game, practiced yoga with baby goats, and much more — so here’s hoping the adventures continue in October.

What’s Hot/What’s Not: October 2010

Whenever someone mentions October, images of ghosts, witches and haunted houses immediately come to mind. Halloween plays a big role not only in the ways we shop and decorate, but the ways in which we conceptualize an entire month. However, while we may be excited about our upcoming excuse to eat tons of candy and dress however we please, let’s keep our eyes out for other fads and current events in this month’s edition of What’s Hot/What’s Not.
