Hey, Ambitious Fam! October might be one of the few months of 2020 that I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to. I was grateful for the ability to spend lots of time outdoors, enjoyed a staycation, and consumed all of the pumpkin things (for more on pumpkin mania, click here). If you’re interested in seeing more about my life and adventures in October, check out my Vlogtober series on Instagram! There you will find a 30-second vlog reel for each day of the month.
Here are my other reflections for the month of October:
One of the activities that I was able to do this month was to visit a new orchard. My siblings and I got up early to make the drive to Catoctin Mountain Orchard in Thurmont, Maryland where we were able to pick apples and enjoy some treats from their market. It was a great way to spend some time outdoors and switch up the scenery. I plan on sharing more about the trip and my other mini adventures on the blog soon!
Though not on my October Bucket List, I realized that I never got to share some big news from the month: CAITLIN AND I STARTED A PODCAST!! Caitlin (of Lemonade Press Blog) and I have been developing our virtual friendship for a couple of years through letters, DMs, texts, chats (etc) and we were looking for a new way to collaborate. We both loved the idea of starting a podcast together and the rest is history! Virtually Best Friends released it’s first 2 episodes on October 22, 2020, and is gearing up for its 5th episode (!!) this Thursday. This week’s episode is super special to us. Until then, you can catch up on our other episodes via Apple Podcast, Anchor, Google Play, Spotify, and more!
Over the last couple of months, I have been learning how to create digital art using Procreate. It has been such a fun way to channel created energy, reduce anxiety, and learn a new skill. In addition to the cover art for VBF pod, here are a couple of other examples of digital art that I was able to create in October:
This month I completed 5 out of 6 of the items on my October Bucket List. While I went on quite a few walks in the month of October, they weren’t really what I had in mind for a “fall hike.” Maybe next month!
