I'm in northern California staying with my family for thinks giving and nothing makes sense. That's usually how it is when I come here but this time it's for a different reason.

Yesterday I carved a jack-o-lantern. (Maybe I'll post a picture, I really like how it turned out) and baked pumpkin seeds. Tonight I am baking pumpkin bread.

So I think I want to start using this blog to really get some focus on my life goals. I wanted something that kind of combined Gretchen Rubin's Happiness Project (http://www.happinessproject.typepad.com) as...
