Fall is upon us, and, while most of the trees here are still green, I have spotted a few trees that are changing color already.

Fall is such a pretty time of year! I love the colorful leaves, the pumpkins, and, yes, even the cooler temps. I am for sure a summer lover, but, I also enjoy the beginning of fall when the temps cool off just a bit.

It’s also a good time of year if you love to get out with your camera. Even a quick trip to a local place where fall beauty is showing is fun. Adam and I made a quick trip to a local place a few days ago. I wanted to go specifically for nature shots, and I wasn’t disappointed. Nature shots are my favorite. Here is a shot of some fall color I found that day:

I love the bright fall colors against the blue sky!

I definitely want to get out more with my camera this season. We have lots going on, especially during this month of October, but, I’m gonna do my best to make time for photography.

Make time to do the things you love!


Fall Firm Up

I think I have mentioned before that I work out with GHUTV online. It’s an online subscription that gives you access to a huge variety of workouts and so much more. They also do a live workout every Monday, which then becomes part of your library.

When I first started with GHUTV, a year and a half ago, I usually just picked a workout and went with it. There is a private fb group called GHUTV Squad, for members. The group usually follows 2 different calendars each month, or you can do your own thing and pick your own workouts. I find that I am more consistent if I stay with a calendar.

For September, they introduced a new calendar, Fall Firm Up Trainers Challenge. This was a calendar of all “live” workouts, and it was intense. I was a sweaty mess every day of this calendar! Yesterday, I finished it!

There’s another new calendar coming for October, it will be released on Monday, I believe. So, today I did Cardio Step 2. It was so much fun! Tomorrow will be a rest day.

I love being a part of the GHUTV Squad. It’s an amazing community of motivation and support.

Do you workout out at home?

Workout Buddy

Do you have a workout buddy? A friend or family member who joins you in your workout?

My workout buddy is Zeus, our german shepherd. He likes to come downstairs with me in the morning while I get my workout in. He pretty much just sleeps the entire time, but he’s down there with me. So, I guess he’s being supportive. 😂

Our other dog, Zeke, couldn’t care less. He rarely comes downstairs during workout time.

I’ve been following the Fall Firm Up Trainers Challenge with Get Healthy U TV. Following a calendar helps keep me more consistent and forces me to choose more challenging workouts. 3 more days and I will have this calendar complete! Chris Freytag and the GHUTV Squad are amazing! If you want to workout from home, have a huge variety of workouts at your disposal, and a squad of motivating and supporting people, then GHUTV is for you! I love it!

Join Us

Starting in August, Young Living members could enroll their spouses as part of their organization.

So, of course, I enrolled my husband. We started him with the Premium Starter Kit with Thieves.

Look at all this amazing Thieves goodness! What a great way to get him started. Thieves is such great support for our immune systems, so knowing Thieves is getting into our systems when we wash our hands, brush our teeth, clean our home, even out in public with our Thieves Spray and Thieves Hand Purifier, is so reassuring.

We would love to have you as part of our oil family. Are you ready? You definitely won’t go it alone. You’ll have constant support from me, plus a whole community of oilers. We can show you how to use essential oils and supplements, plus other products from YL, to support your wellness, your emotions, keep your home clean without chemicals, all of it. It’s a journey I am so grateful to be on!

Dog Day

It’s National Dog Day, so of course I have to share a photo of our dogs.

Here are Zeke and Zeus.

I love them!

Zeke, on the left, is a rescue dog from our local animal shelter. He’s been a part of our family for a few years now. He is a chocolate lab/whippet/pit mix and we love him so much!

Zeus, on the right, with those ears, is a german shepherd, and we got him last year as puppy. He was quite a handful as a puppy, but he has grown so much and has made huge strides in obedience. We love him so much!
