Blog-tember Challenge Catch Up

So it's September...and obviously you knew that. But goodness gracious, where has the time gone? Summer is slowly transitioning into Fall and Starbucks has finally put the PSL back on the menu. Y'all, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and there are lot's of fun and exciting things I always look forward to like watching the leaves change color, sipping on hot coffee throughout the day, sporting my favorite pair of corduroys, not having to worry about the humidity (insert frizzy hair) and getting to pull out every single blanket in the house.

 With September, we also have The Blog-tember Challenge (created by one of my favorite bloggers Bailey from Brave Love). If you haven't heard of it, take a minute to read this post for an overview and to find out what the daily topics are for the month. And if you're like me and sometimes share your posts on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, be sure to include the hashtag #blogtemberchallenge so everyone can follow along.

Okay, all of this talk about The Blog-tember Challenge has me anxious to catch up and get started so I'm going to get started...rightttttt now! First days are always the perfect time for introductions so Bailey had lined up an "About the Author" topic for day one. To get a quick insight into who I am, you can visit my About Me page here. After taking a look back at it now (I admit it's been a few months) I think I'm going to take some time in the next week or so to add some more too it.

The second day of the Challenge consisted of writing about what makes you happy. It could be anything as little as your favorite color to something as big as the day you got your first promotion at work. Here are a few things that make me happy: holding hands, the smell of coffee, the sound of rain, lounging in my snuggie, talking about God with Will, visiting and spending time with family, finishing a book, marking things off my to-do list, the color gold, photography, my best friends, southern traditions, blogging, cuddles from Miller, relaxing at the lake and so much more.
So there you have it, two days in one and many more to come throughout the month! And I don't want to call it a day here on SSM without reminding everyone to link-up to What You Wish Wednesday! Leslie, Stasia, Nikki, Amanda and I have worked hard to get this link-up up and running and are continually working to improve it. One of the things I love most about our link-up is getting to discover new bloggers and finding out what's going on in their own life. This week I would like to feature Aimee from Aimlessly Elegant, Amanda over at Cultivate Create and Kayla of Mississippi Mrs.

Aimee recently celebrated two wonderful years of marriage to her husband and wrote this post recapping her wedding story. And y'all, her dress was beautiful! Amanda sparked excitement and made me think of all things DIY from this post on giving a thrift store chair a complete makeover.
And Kayla opened up about her flaws and other things you might not know in this post. Why can't more of us bloggers be like Kayla and feel comfortable speaking the things that make us vulnerable? I think we should all try to do a better job at being true to who we were created to be.
