What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Okay I’m going to level with you, even typing that felt fake. Because WHAT A CRAPPY YEAR, am I right?
Anyway, October is here, and I’ve been thinking about how that’s always the brightest spot for me. It kicks off my favorite three months of the year. We get fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. It’s full of my favorite music and food and crafts with Jack and parties with friends. It’s the best.
It feels weird to be excited about something like pumpkins and crafts in a year that has been insanely terrible, but also…I have to.
I am so freaking determined to end the year on a good note. If that means I have to fill my house to the brim with pumpkins, then dang it, that’s what it means.
But really, the last three months of the year are always filled with magic. The last three months of a crap year are no different. There’s still magic, we just might have to work a little harder at making it this year.
SO. Some magical things I want to remind you of: Little kids in costumes / DOGS in costumes / The Autumn in New York music station / cooler weather / sweaters / pumpkin and apple flavored everything / magic / magic / magic / magic / magic.
It’s coming, let’s chase it.
The rest of the year, the best of the year.
Because it HAS to be.

I’ve been saying for the longest time that now is the time to thrive. My mental health needs this time of year. All of it. I need pumpkins, cider, Hocus Pocus, cooler weather. Give it all to me.
GIVE ME ALLLLL OF THAT!
I’m with you 100%. I have to, too.
It’s beyond necessary at this point.
Cheers to the best quarter of the year ahead!!!! All the magic will put some happy into 2020. I haven’t listened to The Autumn in New York music station, but there is a YouTube video with the same name and it is awesome. I will have to check that out.
Cheers, friend! Lots of magic on the way!
Determined to make it wonderful. SPEAK IT INTO EXISTENCE! <3
YES YES and YES!!!
I’m determined to love the last quarter of this year! I mean, these months are always magic, so why should this year NEED to be any different?! It’ll just be a little different.
AMEN to that! Still magic!!
AMEN!! This my absolute favorite time of year!!!! Thank you for continuing to be sunshine in human form.
