Happy Wednesday! Can you believe today’s the LAST day of September?! This month marks nine months since my 12 Months of Happiness series first debuted and I couldn’t be prouder of how this series turned out! I’m a firm believer that happiness is contagious and this series definitely reinforced that for me! I’ve really enjoyed spreading happiness around by sharing with you all some of the things that made me smile each month and reading all the wonderful things happening in your lives as well. I’ve gotten so much amazing and positive feedback on this series so far and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. Here are some of the things that made me happy in September: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your September went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you all about what makes you happy!)
September is one of my favorite months because it marks the beginning of one of my favorite seasons: fall. If you couldn’t tell by my What I’m Looking Forward To This Fall (2015), Welcoming Fall With Plaid and New Fall Traditions (2015) posts, I LOVE fall! Fall is definitely tied with spring and winter as my favorite season (basically I love every season but summer. Unpopular opinion I know but summer is just to hot and humid for my taste. Plus, since I’m no longer in school/ I graduated college already, it’s not like I get “summer break” anymore. Summer is just a regular season to me!)
September was a GREAT month advance screening wise. I was invited to three screenings this month, The Walk, The Intern and The Martian (how funny is it that all of these films start with “the?”) Although I’ve been invited to several screenings in the past year (my first ever screening invite was for If I Stay back in July 2014), The Walk was the first IMAX screening I’ve been invited too and it was such an incredible experience. The movie itself was alright, but seeing it in the IMAX definitely helped (in fact, I wouldn’t recommend seeing it in regular theaters. The best part of the movie was the scenery and the IMAX definitely enchanted that!) I’ve said this a few times on the blog before but if you’re a new reader, one of my dreams is to be a screenwriter/film critic/work in the film industry so every time I get invited to these screenings and get to mingle with people in the industry, it always brightens my day. It’s like I’m one step closer to my dreams! (Side note: If you’ve got a dream PLEASE follow it! Never in a million years would I have guessed how much success, opportunities, and joy this little blog would bring me!)Disney definitely makes me happy EVERY month. I spent the first week of September (and the last week of August) at my second home aka Disney World and like always, it was amazing! I even started a new monthly Disney Haul series this month. Disney is my LIFE and nothing makes me happier than being at the Disney Parks! I’m so happy to have a Disney trip planned every month. Getting a Disney Premier Passport (aka annual passes to BOTH Disneyland and Disney World) this May was the BEST decision I EVER made!
Here’s a few other things that made me happy in September:
- The Huffington Post featured MY Super Blood Moon photo! Check it out HERE!
- I’m in the process of switching from Blogger to WordPress! Everything should be transferred and up and running on WordPress by NEXT WEEK!
- I bought opening night tickets for The Lion King on Broadway (I LOVE that show so much!)
- My favorite TV shows (like Blackish and Once Upon A Time) returned.
- I welcomed BB-8 into my family.
- I focused a lot on Pinterest and Twitter this month and my traffic almost tripled!
