The Holiday Eating (and drinking) Season is OFFICIALLY upon us!
I'm still recovering from the election, and from turning 29, just in time for hectic holiday family shenanigans.
It's no secret that this season is prime time for focused self-care. The traveling, the shopping, the planning, the cooking, the socializing...It's all wonderful fun, but if you get too caught up in it, you are at risk for physical and emotional burnout.
Take the time for yourself to get your head on straight, treat your body right, and make sure you feel amazing, all season long.
Are you ready?
Here are some resources to help you get prepared for what's to come.

Nothing official here, but I DO challenge you to drink one or two more glasses of water each day this week, than you normally do.
You already know all the benefits to your health, as they're listed in practically every health article on the internet.
You can even make a drinking game out of it:
Every time *that* uncle says something awful at Thanksgiving, or if mom does something really mom-like (like wanting to look in your ears) or when your brother's kid has a melt-down...
Take a sip!
Cheers and I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving.
All my love,
I absolutely LOVE this time of year. As a November baby, I'm absolutely TEAM FALL.
Some people need to go south to Florida for the winter, but I need to go north for the summer...like Maine, or Canada.
The smell of the leaves, the crispness in the air, dreary rainstorms. the tone of new beginnings...I love it all.
However, though I adore the concept, Halloween has never been my strong suit. I'm a chronic procrastinator and never wind up thinking of a decent costume
(like that time in college I ate a pudding cup on the way to a mixer [like a grown-up], and kept the spoon so my costume could be "A Creeper. Wanna spoon?")
This weekend, I'm enjoying some fun walks with Renly, visiting all the fun decorated houses, spooky movies, and a little bit of witchy wonder, perhaps a spell or two...
...Perhaps the one from Practical Magic so I can bring a certain Walking Dead character back to life...

Some of you will disagree with me, but, although I would love a few more afternoons by the pool, I'm enamored with the turn of the season. It feels like a new opportunity to start fresh. Just google "September is the new January" and you'll see what I mean. I can't help but be reminded of that scene from You've Got Mail when Joe Fox says to Kathleen Kelly:
"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."
