October was an eventful month around here! Somehow, it’s already the end of the month, and time to link up to Emily Freeman‘s monthly “What We Learned” link party. Here we go!

1. Rather than learned, I was reminded that I am terrible at crafty projects!

I should have known better, but I always come back to thinking “I can make that! I can be DIY crafty!” Nope, I sure can’t. We moved into our new winter home this month and I attempted to create some cute wall hangings for the bathroom. Cue all the frustration, grumpiness, staples all over my living room, and eventually giving up and tossing the project on a shelf somewhere. Oops. What can I say? I’m not a crafter.

2. There’s a LOT of goodness in Matthew 5-7.

The Sermon on the Mount. I’ve particularly been stuck on Matthew 6:19-34 lately.
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” 
Wow-zers.

3. Chemicals are bad for you.

Okay, so we all knew that already. I’ve just been ignoring the probability that there are gross chemicals in my shampoo, body wash, lotion, etc that are terrible for my body. In the last few days I’ve been reading a bit more about it, and I think soon I might try switching to homemade (or at least purchased organic) for some of these products. We’ll see how it goes.

4. I learned what moose tracks look like.

And I don’t mean the ice cream! 🙂
Brett and I came across these while on a walk near Cowee Creek a couple weeks ago. They were pretty fresh, so we tried tracking the moose, but couldn’t find it. I’m not sure what we would have done if we had found it… but that’s a moot point, right?

What are some things YOU learned in the past 30 days??

  1. I joined a Bible study this month with women I didn’t know, except for one. I’m loving it. Great study and love making new friends. I never saw a moose. Saw lots of caribou though.

  2. I love reading a passage i used to read and seeing it in a new light or something I never saw before. I love the moose tracks
