Hi there and a very HAPPY MONDAY TO YA'LL! It obviously isn't the 1st of the month anymore, but better late than never, right? I was M.I.A. the past two weeks on the blog, and to be completely honest with you, I just needed a quick (but seriously big time) BREAK from social media/emails/internet and decided to disconnect briefly. Have ya'll ever felt like that? Every so often I have a moment where I struggle with how much is too much when it comes to putting it all out there and sharing your life online, not to mention always being connected...there certainly comes a time when I just need to take a step back, breathe, and regroup. Of course someone out there has felt the same way, surely, right? Not to worry though, I'm back in action and feeling more than inspired after the mini break.
On that note, how has ya'lls September been so far? What did I miss? September is one of those months I personally have a love/hate relationship with. While there is the obvious ending of summer (hate, and on a side note, this is the last "official" week of summer), this month also means the beginning of college football season (love!, hook em' horns!), cooler weather (love love!), fall fashion!, leaves changing color (if you live outside of Texas) and that's just to name a few. It's safe to say that after this past weekend here in New York, fall is officially here!
The past two weeks I've had a chance to complete a few things that have been on the dreaded to-do list for-ever...and had such a wonderful few days with my mom in town this past weekend. Just a few of my favorite Instagram pictures from the past two weeks, and for those of ya'll who don't yet follow me on Instagram, follow me at haleycarpenter or online here. Make sure to check back later this week for a few fabulous fall inspired posts I've been working on!
