I’m loving seeing everyone’s blogs transition into autumn colors and tones. I get so much inspiration from my fellow bloggers, because truly there are so many interesting, beautiful, and creative women out there blogging about everything from food to motherhood to photography. I think being totally “original” is so hard to come by, because I am influenced constantly by everything I see on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. I see blogging as a supportive community of like-minded people who all inspire and challenge each other.
Anyways, sorry for that little blogging rant. There’s just been a lot of fuss lately over it being superficial or staged. For me, I’ve felt like my blog is my safe place. It’s an outlet where I get to share my feelings, my moods, my recipes, and whatever else suits my fancy. I’ve always found it to be empowering and a way for me to exercise my freedom of speech. So if you’re ever wandering if you should start a blog or want to try it out, I say go for it and see where it takes you!
I am really excited that it’s almost October, because that means I get to officially freak out over Halloween. You can be expect me to share lots of vegan candy recipes, costume ideas, and other fun ways of celebrating the season. One good way to get in the fall mood? Pack up a picnic basket with yummy food, grab a blanket, and head outdoors for a picnic in the fresh air. I’ll be preparing like crazy the next couple of weeks to make this coming month as fun as possible here on the blog!
