It's only October, but it already seems like the count down to the end of the year has begun.
Someone said to me the other day there's only 12 weeks to Christmas and while I'm not quite ready for that, there's no denying the distinct holiday vibe in the air that feels almost festive.
Everyone I know seems to be overseas at the moment or taking days off to spend time in the sunshine with their kids during the school holidays. The weather has turned crazy hot, which makes it feel like late December even though we're still in the middle of spring.
All of this coupled with the fact that we'll be going away soon for a lovely beach getaway really makes it feel like the end of the year is nigh.
And of course, this month brings Halloween, one of my new favourite holidays now that Lauren loves it so. She's already decided what costume she'll be wearing to trick or treat and how we'll decorate our house.
I hope you've got a bit of a holiday vibe happening over your way as we ring in the new month and here's to a stellar October!
