Thrifty Thursday Linky Party at!

Happy  Thursday and Happy October!  Can I get a little woot woot for fall?  I truly love this time of year.  As many of you know, this month I am hosting a series called 31 Days of Less & More along with my friend Edie of Life in Grace.  If you haven’t already been following along, I invite you to join us for a month of less heartache but more joy, less stress but more peace, and less stuff but more contentment.

31 Days of Less & More. Join this month long, life-changing challenge to fill your life with less heartache but more joy, less stress but more peace, and less stuff but more contentment. Starts October 1st.....are you in?

Please note that for the month of October the Thrifty Thursday link party will be going live at 8:45am EST instead of 9am.

    Woot woot! I am so happy it’s fall! Although it’s still 90 in Texas, but at least it’s not 100!

    I finished your ebook and left a review on Amazon yesterday. Thank you for writing a book with so many wonderful tips! I’ve only implemented a couple of them so far, but my readership has already started growing. I can’t wait to start trying out even more tips!
