Good Bye, September. Hello, October.

Ahhhh, October. The season where rust-colored leaves find a home on the ground, chunky scarves find their way to the front of the closet and pumpkin spice lattes find eager hands.  And I'll join the throngs of people who say that fall is their favorite season. I'm not sure what it is, but there seems to be a little magic in the air. Things just feel fresher, newer. I'm really excited for Fall 2016! This season has brought some really interesting things. From starting a business to planning weddings, this has been a whirlwind month.

Bourbon & Honey: The Business and Feature Friday

If you caught my Hello September post, I made two announcements: I started a social media consulting company and I added a new section to the blog called Feature Friday. Over the past month, these have both blossomed! Feature Friday is very popular - and for good reason, too. These stories are wildly positive, bold and encouraging. Something I firmly believe we as a city really need. When we build our communities - whether online or offline - and share each other's stories, we spur each other on, encouraging one another and making a difference in our lives.

The business has been growing steadily, and with a few collaborations locked in, things are only getting better. Lots to come this year!

Hello, October

hello october september recap post

October is bringing some really fun things. I will be attending the Next Big Thing social media conference on October 15. Expect a recap of the day, which is sure to be jam-packed with information! I will also be attending the

I will also be attending the Harvest Fundraiser for Leftovers Foundation. You may recall the feature I posted on this great organization. If not, see the link above! Leftovers is a special organization. They solve a unique problem in our city. Many services agencies such as poverty agencies that provide the people they serve with food struggle with tight budgets and rising food costs. Leftovers rescues food from markets, grocery stores and restaurants to help alleviate some of the stress these service agencies face to provide enough food. I'm excited to be supporting this organization, and I highly recommend that you all head on over to Eventbrite and grab your ticket.

I've also been saving some delicious fall recipes to share with you guys this month, so be on the lookout for those. I will also be featuring four more incredible people and organizations as part of Feature Friday.

What are you up to this month?
