October is my favorite month for many different reasons. Fall is here, even though temps are still near 90 degrees here in East Tennessee, leaves are starting to change, and there is just a crispness to the air that I love.
I got in really late last Friday night from Colorado. I had the dreaded middle row seat for the longest flight which made my flight seem twice as long. The man on my left pulled out a nasty smelling sandwich and started chowing down as soon as we took off. My stomach had been slightly queasy all week because of the altitude change so you can imagine that did not help. The man on my right was dipping skoal tobacco and spitting it into a bottle. YUCK. He was trying to be discreet about it but when you are sitting that close it’s hard to be. I put my earbuds in and adjusted my neck pillow and watched a movie and slept.
I had a great time in Colorado and did a lot of fun things. The scenery was beautiful, and I had so many ideas in my head from our conference speakers I couldn’t wait to get back to work to share them with everyone. We had some amazing speakers but Jon Schallert with Destination Businesses was my favorite.

We spent an entire day at Bair Ranch with horseback riding, 4 wheeling and Jeep riding. Also lots of time afterward in the lodge drinking wine.
Have a wonderful weekend
Love your day your way!!
