Happy Monday, and welcome to November, huh? I can’t believe it’s already almost Thanksgiving and that all of the holiday season craziness is just around the corner. One other thing that I can’t believe? That the Red Sox won the World Series!! Well, I take that back. I can believe it, because this year’s team had that magical feeling that the ’04 team had as well. I could tell at the beginning of October that it could turn into a very exciting month as the playoffs progressed. And boy was I right!
Since last Wednesday night, when the Sox defeated the Cards in Game 6 to take the title, the city of Boston has been celebrating like crazy. With the Duckboat parade on Saturday, this city has been full of high fives, hugs, and Red Sox jerseys everywhere you turn (oh, and beards too of course!) It’s been so great to be here in the city with all of this going on, and it feels especially wonderful after the rough year that this city has had since the Marathon in April. All of the Duckboats in the parade this weekend sported signs that said #ForYouBoston, and it really did feel like they won for this amazing city and it’s people. Now I can’t wait for next year to see who returns and what they can do next!
With all of the Red Sox celebrating going on, and Halloween shenanigans thrown right in the middle of it, I really haven’t had much time to write. Today I’m sharing some good reads that I’ve found lately, and hope that you can enjoy them too! I’ve also begun writing a post about sleep deprivation that has sprung from the lack of sleep that the Sox playoffs caused, so hopefully that’ll be up Wednesday. Until then, check out these other awesome posts, and have a wonderful start to your week!

Saying”It Works for me” is exactly like saying “I have a tickling fetish” What works for you may not work for me, and vice versa.
