Hello November

“In November, the trees are standing all sticks and bones. Without their leaves, how lovely they are, spreading their arms like dancers. They know it is time to be still.” – Cynthia Rylant

Hello November

While searching for a nice November quote, I came across the above – and many others – from ‘In November’ by Cynthia Rylant. It seems like a beautiful little book and from the quotes I’ve read, it really captures the feeling of autumn/winter.

Anyway, hello November! I can’t quite believe you are here already (where has this year gone?) but it’s lovely to see you. November signifies the transition from autumn to winter and an introduction to all things festive- happy times indeed. Following my Hello October post, I have achieved two out of three goals (the latter being to relax with not knowing what exactly I want to do with my life- it’s just a tough one!) so here’s what I’m planning for November.

  • Chill out about my uncertainty
  • More of the same (blogging, reading, social media growth)
  • Try to get my noggin around SEO
  • Enjoy the last of the autumn leaves that have been covering Munich like a colourful layer of snow…
  • … and prepare for real snow (yay!), which has been forecast for as early as next week. I’m not surprised – the temperature has dropped drastically recently
  • Get to work on a festive playlist! (#sorrynotsorry)

What are your plans for November?

Love Sarah xo

    I love this list! These are definitely things I want to do too. If you have wordpress, yoast seo is really good for helping with seo’s. I’ve already started playing holiday music so it’s okay haha. Thanks for sharing!

      Hehe glad I’m not the only one! Love the Christmassy tunes! And can’t wait til all the Christmas movies are added to Netflix!! :) aw I do have wordpress, thank you so much, it’s great to get recommendations for plugins. I do searches and often there are so many different plugins I don’t even know where to begin! x

      Oh I’m still pretty baffled even with this plugin ha! Hopefully I’ll get to grips with it soon! :) xx

    I’m so jealous you may be getting snow! I live in Australia already in Spring it’s soo hot. I’m dreaming of snow right now!! For November it’s more of the usual: blogging, working, watching tv series, and trying to read more books. Hope you have a great november!
