BEING A PREP FOR A WEEK: 10/2/16 -- 10/8/16

October 8, 2016

Before we delve into this post, let's not ignore a few important topics.  First, it's October. For those of you living in colder parts of the world, that might mean that you've already pulled out thicker layers of clothing and winter boots;  for those of us in the South, this October has signaled a steady decline in the number of hours of daylight and an onslaught of rain caused by Hurricane Matthew (which I hope you're all well and safe from!).  I did spot a leaf on the ground the other day, so that's evidence of nature's remarkable progress.

Second, this is the first time I've published one of these posts in several weeks.  As you can probably guess, that unfortunate turn of events was caused by the utter insanity of the past few weeks of my life. This past week in particular started off on a rather sour note, but it ended as wonderfully as could be expected.  It just goes to show you, doesn't it?  Thankfully, I'm currently facing a four-day fall break, so you can bet that I'll be using that free time to get back on track.

Prep For A Day

Now, on to some of my favorite links from the past week:
I've found it:  the perfect fashion blog.  Blogger Jenny Cipoletti runs a blog that is the perfect blend of lovely travel shots, everyday musings, and classic, feminine fashion.
If you love classics like Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre, you will find this Instagram account thoroughly amusing...
This note that an autistic boy received from one of his teachers concerning his grades is absolutely heartwarming;  it'll put a smile on your face...
Lastly, Jackie, the new biographical film about Jackie Kennedy, just released its first trailer.  Needless to say, it looks like a film worth watching.

So amidst all of the conundrum and the calm in today's world, I've tried to remember just one thing:  "And behold, He is making all things new."

How was your week?
