*happy november*

Today is November first, and I am spending my day in the most fall-tastic way!  I will be drinking lots of coffee with white chocolate mocha creamer, watch Gilmore Girls (the most fall-licious show ever), create a happy fictional town in which my characters will live and love and burn my pumpkin spice candle.  I am a happy girl.

Here are my november goals!

You should blog about your monthly goals, too!  And comment with a link to it!  [or you could just leave your monthly goals as a comment]  

Being productive is much easier when you’ve got people holding you accountable :)
