It was a breezy, sunny day last week and there was a little chill in the air. It was just the right temperature for taking a walk or walking a dog only if I owned one...:) I stared through the window at the beautiful colors of fall displayed in the trees and the shrubs and I thought "how busy, yet beautiful." There were greens, browns, orange, wine; each color competing to be the finest and together all turning out to make this beautiful fall scenery. I took a cue and layered myself in a busy outfit; a black and white assemble accessorized with a colorful scarf I recently got from Wal-Mart. Over my white graphic tee, I threw on a grid jacket; a mixture of trends. It was indeed a busy outfit but it put a smile on my face.

Fashion aside; at this time of the year, everyone is so busy caught in the festivities and holidays and shopping that there is hardly any time spent on the reflection of what is most important. Halloween just ended and the stores are already stocking up for thanksgiving and black Friday sales, Then Christmas and New-year are just around the corner. The Christmas list is getting longer and longer and the check-out lines at the stores are getting a little crazy as each day comes.

I am taking some time to reflect and slowing things down a bit. For me, this season is not just all about getting the best deals or making that perfect dinner or planning the perfect party. It's about appreciation for God, life, family and friends and taking some time out of  my busy schedule to tell someone how much they are loved and appreciated.
