September is dwindling down and October is inching its way towards us. The weather—at least in New Mexico—is crisp and cool, and I’m soaking in every minute of it while I’m here. How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
Shoot. I’m talking about the weather. That’s a no-no when starting a conversation with a new friend, right? Whoops? Moving on…
I received a really great response from this series last month, and it sounds like several of you went out and found some new blogs to read. That makes me happy since I really feel that’s what blogging is (partly) all about. At the conference I went to they really honed in on bringing back that connection and engagement, and I’m really going to strive to make that happen, at least here.
So, here’s a rundown of the wonderful sponsors I had this month. I’ve truly enjoyed getting to know them, and I hope you will, too!
Origami Owl with Laurie English (Independent Designer)
Christmas is 86 days away—crazy, right?! I’m totally smitten with the idea of getting some Origami Owl products for some lovely ladies in my life. If you missed my interview with Laurie, the Independent designer last week, I highly encourage you to read it (and not just because there’s a giveaway attached to the post that ends tonight!) Besides the famous living lockets, check out these lanyards (perfect for teachers), leather wrap bracelets, and their new core line for a more modern look.
The Way I Wanderlust
Kayleigh is a woman after my own heart. She loves travel and lives to blog about it—perfect combo, right?!. Whether she’s jetting off to England, sharing breath-taking scenes from Canada, or adding to her bucket list on Wanderlust Wednesday (my favorite feature of hers), you can rest assured that she’ll leave you itching to hit the road after reading her blog.
Jen over at Beebee Belly is awesome, and not just because she’s living it up in Hawaii with her husband and two kids, but because she writes those posts that you want to read. She shares delicious recipes that real people can actually make (nothing with crazy ingredients or super complicated, is what I mean), and she posts easy DIY crafts. But more than that, she’s a military wife AND she serves in the reserves! Also, she’s not a fan of the pumpkin craze, which is a-okay in my book! (And one last plug, she has an Etsy page and some wreaths that I need in my life.)
World Traveling Military Family
Mrs. B is a familiar face around this ol’ blog, and if you haven’t checked her out yet, then you need to—NOW! Her thorough and informative posts about travel, especially around Germany, are not only entertaining, but so invaluable with all the advice she gives. If you ever wondered what it’s like to live in Europe, WTMF is the blog you can live vicariously through. After you’ve had your fair share of travel, hop on over to her Pinterest page, because while Mrs. B has a knack for travel, you should see the crafts she makes. If she’s pinned it, there’s a good chance she’ll be making it very soon!
