Starting today, we decided to share some of our favorite things throughout the month of September. We are dedicating our Wednesday blog series to spotlight our favorite books, fall activities, movies, TV shows, you name it.
We would also like to invite readers to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest as well to stay connected in with this series. We would love for you to share some of your Fall Favorites too.
Today Laura and Erin give us their first submissions of their September favorites.
Laura: So summer is ending and fall is coming down on us with the swiftness of the winter winds. It’s right around this time I start getting the ‘bug’. Every year for the last 3 years I get it in my head to start cleaning out the house. And there’s a good reason for it! Once I’ve either donated, given or sold items in the home. I then go out on the town so to speak and check out the yearly yard sales and farmer markets.
Is it just me? Or has everyone decided it’s a great time to sell some unused items? Because this is the year of the yard sale for sure! Weather it’s due to the economic issues at hand or people are just trying to get rid of a bunch of junk. Which ever the situation may be I’ve definitely cashed in so to speak. So many items at a really decent price! Always down with savings. This past holiday weekend it seemed like everyone was having a sale. And what great deals were out there! I was especially proud of my frugal habits when I walked away with a great block train set and money yet to invest in other great buys. And a hidden plus if you’re single is you get a chance to meet new people.
Fall always brings me back to the country. Hay rides, pumpkin picking and spending time with family. Farmers Markets are a hidden jewel of the country and if you go to the right ones you’ll find the best deals. Everything is fresher when you buy from farmers markets. They’ve got the wide selection of goods that have come in with the seasons. For example, last year at the harvest festival, I was able to get a wide variety of fall vegetables that were not only good and healthy but not bad on my wallet.
Farmers markets are also a great place to take the family if you happen to be looking to do something for a few hours. You never know what you will find once you’ve started walking down the various isles. Goods can range from fresh farm foods (like corn, squash, and pumpkins) to hand crafted specialty items.
This year I’ll be stopping by the farmers markets and the yard sales in hopes of making this a September to remember.
Erin: Fall is kinda hectic for everyone I think. Between going back to school, getting the kids ready to to back to school, or just crazy work schedules… it’s hard to find time to relax with a good book. I have always kind of been put off by audio books because I value cracking open a book but right now I have to say I’m obsessed with audiobooks!
I work a lot and am constantly busy. I do a lot of the creative behind the scenes stuff here at Foretell as well as working as a CSR so I like to have a little background noise when I work. I find it helps to keep my creative juices flowing and also it helps relieve stresses of the everyday hustle and bustle.
Recently I downloaded an audiobook by Gabrielle Bernstein called “Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles.” It was recommended to me by a few people and I gotta say I don’t know why I waited so long to check out this book.
Spirit Junkie is a great read for anyone who doesn’t really know the steps to take towards finding their inner happiness or for anyone who might need some inspiration from the perspective of someone who has been rock bottom and found the tools to pull themselves up by using simple tips; which she gives in the book.
This was super inspiring to me. Gabrielle talks about how addiction whether it be to food, a substance, bad relationship, bad thoughts, etc, are all fear-based habits that we can break and gives hope that no matter who you are and how far gone you think you are the power lies within you and nobody else.
It was so powerful and she shares her trials and tribulations that were sometimes funny and sometimes sad but all in all extremely relatable on all levels. I have already recommended this to other friends as well actually because I think it’s definitely a great book for someone in their mid twenties to late thirties especially who would enjoy a good read from a strong female figure.
Oh, and I would strongly recommend her guided meditations. there are some that she goes over in the book but I downloaded some separately and they are amazing and I feel amazing and have been doing them in between work and running around. It helps keep your mind centered and helps keep you strong and happy thoughts in and bad thoughts out. It’s all about “letting life flow.”
