Happy October all!

I know once September hits everyone starts talking about Fall, but honestly I don’t really start feeling it until October arrives. The weather actually begins to cool down a few degrees. You can buy pumpkins and they won’t rot before Halloween. You don’t feel as stupid wearing a scarf…

So many reasons to love October!!!

First of all, I’m hosting my annual Witch’s Brunch on Saturday and am soooooo excited! This is my most favorite party I throw all year. You can read about last year’s here. 

I bought these pumpkin bowls at Pier 1 last year for my Thanksgiving Tablescape, and  they are still available! I plan on using them for Pumpkin Soup on Saturday.

A new LBD is on the blog this month (a new favorite from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!) and I’ll be posting a few fantastic recipes. If you are local to North Texas, I am giving a cooking demonstration at the Oil & Vinegar at Watters Creek on October 10 from 1-3. I hope you will come watch!

And let’s not forget that this month is breast cancer awareness month! Like many of you out there, this month is always very important to me because of my mother’s battle with breast cancer. It is a scary, dangerous disease and I thank the Lord everyday for healing Sadie and keeping her cancer-free for the past 5 years. It is such a helpless feeling when someone you love is suffering. Prayers to all of you who are battling or if you know someone who is. You can read Sadie’s story here.

This year’s Stella and Dot Breast Cancer Bracelet is the Resilience Cuff.

From September 10th, 2015 until October 31st, 2015, Stella & Dot will donate 20% of the purchase price of eligible customer purchases of the Resilience Cuff to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.
The Noreen Fraser Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for breakthrough research that advances precision medicine for the prevention and treatment of women’s cancers.

Please consider getting one for yourself or a loved one battling cancer. You can purchase the Resilience Cuff here.

If you host a Stella and Dot Trunk Show during the month of October, I am donating 10% of proceeds to the NFF. PLEASE consider hosting a party! It is such an important cause!

My verse of the month was introduced to me by a friend just a few weeks ago.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified;

do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God

will be with you wherever you go.     ~Joshua 1:9

I love this verse!!

Be strong and courageous! Don’t be terrified. Don’t be discouraged. Because God is with us. I pray this verse be a confidence boost for you this month.

Happy October to you all!

-ciao for now-
