october is the most important month of the entire year for my family. while i love selling 600 thread-count-sheets tuesday through saturday it has been a nice change of pace selling pumpkins and watching the worlds cutest kids try to push wheel-barrels full of pumpkins on my days off. so now for a little catch up..

 it was a picture perfect fall season.

work wise, it was a very busy month. 
we started off the month with a little music video by the one and only justin bieber.
they shot in front of the store and it was such a fun experience to be a part of and watch. 
when you see the silver shopping bags in the video- they were stuffed with tissue paper by yours truly. 
my little sister sure did love the 'bag of snow' i saved for her as a souvenir. 

 at lulu we celebrated fall with a pretty pink pumpkin patch. 

we even got to be a part of a proposal during october. 
we had this frame that said, "what are you doing the rest of your life? north and south and east and west of your life? i have one request, that you spend it all with me." one of our customers had placed a picture of his girlfriend and himself in it and we placed it on the wall as if it was for sale. and when she walked in and saw it he walked her to the front of the store and got down on one knee on the sidewalk and proposed. my boss and i watched from behind the counter with a few tears. it was magical. 

 it was a great flea market month, i got a few great pieces half-off on the last day. 
trying to stock up on some furniture for a future business venture. more to come on that soon.

we had another great hootenanny to close out the fall season. 

(what's a hootenanny you ask? oh just a semi-annual party/dinner/concert thrown by my granddad and some very, very talented songwriter brothers he coached at brentwood academy.) 

there was some great dancing. i laughed until i cried.

it was a pretty great month. and november has proved to be a pretty great month as well.
