Autumn. Lovely, lovely Autumn.

Autumn pinterest board from katienormalgirl.com #autumn #fall #seasons

It’s mid-November and you’d never know it down here in Florida. The approaching cold snap is expected to lower temperatures down to 60°F …for one night. Many of our trees are still flush with green and the orange and yellows of Fall never quite make it down this way. So when the weather outside doesn’t quite say “Autumn” (in the same way that it does up north), I need a little inspiration. This week’s Pin-Picks are all about my favorite season, Autumn. Join me over on Pinterest, I’d love to see your Fall picks!

P.S. Poll: Do you refer to the season as Fall, Autumn, or do you use the terms interchangeably, like me? Let me know in the comments!

Journey Of 1,865 Days: The Fear Of Going For It

Journey of 1,865 Days-The Fear of Going For It from katienormalgirl.com

It’s a month into my new Journey of 1,865 Days and I have a secret to tell you. Sometimes when I think about it, my chest swells and fills with such excitement that I feel like I might actually burst. (Drumroll, please.) I want to open a business. Of course there’s more to it than that, as any dreamer will tell you there’s always more to tell – and I will –  but for now, the important part is to say that I want to open a business.

“When A Haircut, Isn’t Just A Haircut”

I once read that you carry the memory and knowledge of your life’s journey in your hair. Up until recently, I had the journey of 1,865 days in my hair.Handwritten word-journey of 1865 days

I sat in the salon chair with the stylist standing behind me, her left hand holding the 12-inch ponytail, her right hand holding the scissors, poised just above the hair-tie. She asked one more time, “Are you ready?” I answered without hesitation, “Yes”. This Continue Reading →

A Year of Full Moons – October

he moon has reset and will soon start to wane.  This is your monthly reminder that now is the time to release any bad habits or negative thoughts you might be holding onto.  As our view of the moon shrinks, sliver by sliver, let it take that which you wish to release.  Allow yourself the freedom to let go.  It’s during this lunar phase that the growth of leaves on plants and trees starts to slow, because as the moonlight fades, the plants push their energy down to the their root systems.  Focus on strengthening your own roots, the part of you from which everything else grows and flourishes.

The quote on the photo above is from one of my favorite books, The Girl Who Chased The Moon by Sarah Addison Allen. The story is enchanting and always inspires me to go out and chase the moon.  I took the above photograph during our full October moon in Orlando, Florida, United States on October 28, 2012 at 9:14 p.m. EST, using my iphone.
