As we see the fall leaves falling off the trees, and feel the chill in the air, we know winter is around the corner. This is the time of year when we take some time to reflect on all the many things we have to be thankful for. We do what we can to spend time with loved ones, and share in old memories, while making new ones. We also start thinking about what gifts to buy for those same people. One company is giving you a few more things to be thankful for.

I’ve heard it estimated that over 365 million people around the world own a computer, including desktops, laptops, Apples and PCs. Although that number sounds very impressive, it will surely continue to rise in this technology driven society. Computers are simply everywhere, and are needed for school, work, communication and recreation. Unfortunately, computers indefinitely have problems, but most of us don’t know how to fix them.

Phone companies have been around for nearly 140 years. Back then, it was an amazing feat to hear a voice talking on the other end of the phone line. Fast forward to the present day, and phone companies provide you with land line or cell phone service, high speed internet service, high definition picture taking capabilities, GPS navigation, and much more. Although this list is impressive, I found one phone company that’s doing even more.

In general, computers are expensive to purchase, and often times even more expensive to maintain. Technology moves so fast these days, it’s hard to keep up on the latest and greatest when it comes to speed, ram, memory and other such things. If you take your computer to a repair center, the cost of such repairs or upgrades could be quite high. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could do the repairs yourself?

It’s no secret that recently technology has encouraged the collection and consumption of electronics of every shape and size. Everywhere you look, you see people on their hand held devices checking email, playing games, chatting with friends, and making phone calls. It seems like those of us that don’t have any of these gadgets are in the minority now. This technology craze has also created a division between those who thrive on it, and those who are more focused on simple living and earth friendly practices. Is is possible to satisfy both sides of this issue?

When my husband and I had been married for almost a year, he began talking about getting a dog. I had never owned a dog, and although I wasn’t opposed to the idea of owning a dog, I wasn’t sure if I could ever learn to really love a dog. Low and behold, less than 2 years later, we were the proud owners of an adorable 6 week old mastiff/boxer mix puppy. We named her Maya and she instantly became the center of our world. When Halloween came around, I became one of those people who I used to make fun of that dressed their dog up in a costume. She won first prize in a doggie costume contest and we have dressed her up ever since.

Although summer is such a fun time of year, I have to say I love fall even better. The weather is still warm enough to be outside, the crisp nights are perfect for bike rides and long walks, and it’s the start of the holiday season. Now is when most kids start to think about who or what they want to be for Halloween. Finding just the right costume can make all the difference between a great Halloween, and a forgettable one. This is where the adults need to step in and help their kids out.

Growing up in the nineties, I knew what the word layaway meant, but I never saw anyone actually use it. My parents were the type who either bought something when they needed it, or didn’t buy it at all. Some adults I knew would put things on credit cards, and then pay them off later. Unfortunately, there are negatives associated with both of these scenarios. With my parents, they often times bought things when they couldn’t afford them, or missed out on deals because they didn’t have enough money at the time. Those who bought things on credit ended up paying more for them than their upfront cost. Now that I’m adult, I see that layaway is the perfect answer to both of these scenarios.

Although I love summer with all the traveling, swimming, camping and relaxing, I think I love fall just as much. The days start to get a little cooler, the leaves start to change, and there is a crispness in the air preparing us for the winter which will be here before we know it. Millions of kids, teenagers and college students return to school with high hopes of a great year. All of these events are fun and exciting, but it’s not what I love most about the fall. I absolutely love watching college football with friends, eating good food, and sharing in the excitement that inevitably follows.

Did you know that September is National Sewing Month? If you’re like me, you had no idea until you read this blog. I personally was unaware of this monthly celebration until today when I checked out Joann.com to get ideas for possible Halloween costumes. I soon found out that throughout the month of September, Joann.com offers 50% off their Home Decor Fabrics until supplies run out. What a great reason to get fabric now for those fun fall projects you have in mind.
