The Right Foot

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


Good morning, lovelies! And welcome to a brand new week! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great. Got a lot accomplished and yesterday we went on a foliage drive upstate. The foliage wasn't peak yet but it was pretty nonetheless.

Also we attempted to go pumpkin picking but, as I mentioned earlier, there is a pumpkin shortage this year, and the farm we went to seems to have been affected by the hurricane back in August. Oh well, guess I'll just be picking mine up from the storm this year. I tried....

So onto the next. A little pumpkin shortage isn't going to bring me down. I'm in a fabulous mood this morning and I'm starting this week off on the right foot. I started a new way of eating last week, vegan & gluten-free, and as of now, I'm feeling great and ready to take on whatever is thrown my way. One thing I haven't given up is my morning cup of coffee. Every girl has to have at least one vice, right? And besides coffee is good for you :)

Hope your week gets off to a fabulous start!

xoxo

Good luck with the new food choices, Dawn. I too had a great weekend, and that always makes Monday better, doesn't it?

I spent the weekend celebrating my brother's birthday. And this morning, I finally started work on my handmade accessories collection.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Amazing about the pumpkin shortage, have heard so much about it. I am so interested to hear more about your diet, was this an impulsive thing or had you been considering this for a long time? Do you feel a marked difference in your energy level? I am curious because someone I know who moved away to Spain did that a few years ago and within a few months she said she felt like a new person......it defenitely intrigued me!!
Enjoy your day.

Don't you love those days when everything goes just right? Glad to hear your week is off to a brilliant start. The new diet sounds great; I'm doing something similar and trying to stick to organic and non-processed food - a change in diet definitely makes you feel a whole lot brighter! xx

Chelsea said...

Such a good attitude to read about first thing on Monday. I want to hear more about this big diet change...I am not even sure about the pros of going gluten free. xo

I finally got some pumpkins as well!
p.s: truly need my caffeine fix too, especially on a Monday morning!

Taylor said...

Save a pumpkin for the kiddo's (at least that's what I tell myself bc I don't need one, even though I want one HA!) And girl how are you eating like that - I want to go veggie but I can't give up the occasional steak...Although we are tonning down the meat consumption - I am not that strong!

Liz {Sequins And Stripes} said...

Gluten free is the way to be! Your body will feel amazing! Happy Monday to you!

ASHLEY said...

Happy Monday! This is happening in Southern Maryland too! We went pumpkin picking and the patch wasn't very pretty ;( They said Irene had them under 16 inches of water!

Daisy said...

I can never give up coffee too ;)

Elle Sees said...

Wish I could send some pumpkins your way! I got to go stargazing too.

Sounds like a beautiful weekend, Dawn! I've been enjoying fall too ... such a gorgeous time of the year and always feels like a fresh start (must go back to when we started school in the fall) ... perfect time for a fresh start in a diet and you've really made some changes! So glad you're feeling fab and best of luck with the new way of eating .. I agree, give up coffee ... uhhh, no. ;) Kisses ~

Sad about the pumpkin shortage! I haven't been to a patch in so long and I totally need to go soon. Love that first photo. Stunning!

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

Pumpkin shortage such a bummer! I feel like I've been seeing pumpkin patches all over the blog, but just not here. Definitely keep me posted on the vegan diet. Have you ever seen this blog? http://theveganstoner.blogspot.com/

my bro in law loves it and he has been vegan for several years now.

Wow good for you on your new way of eating. and I agree with you on the coffee. I'm pretty sure I would wither & die without coffee.

Ahh I do love a good hazelnut latte; especially in Winter and on stressful days -The perfect excuse for a break or a gossip with girlfriends on Sundays :)
Love the brown-espue tones of all the pictures, very pretty.
