October Reflections on Community

Last week I shared with you all some of the things that help me since I was having a pretty rotten week. This week is completely the opposite and it rocks, probably because I started it off with the Salt Market!

It was pretty great to see so many people supporting the community. Plus I got to see some friendly faces.salt market syracuse

I swiped a ton of business cards. Here are some of my favorites:

Being out and about in my city totally brings me happiness. I love Syracuse. I also like connecting with people who also care about where we live and want to enhance it. Tonight I will be attending a CNY [Central NY!] blogger meet-up. I’m pretty excited to connect with other bloggers in the area – it seems like a pretty diverse bunch. Along with being locally oriented I love this wonderful blogging world.

From guest series like the weekly team-up with artsocial for the IN LOVE series to DIY inspiration by Sara from Beautifully Contained  – I love sharing the wealth. Cue commandment #6 from my own happiness project. I’m looking forward to to November where I will be refocusing, re-branding and re-designing bedsidesign. Don’t worry though, there’s no way I can leave community in the dust.

To carry this month’s focus on into November I’m offering you an opportunity to team up with me. <– check it out!

What brings you happiness? And as always, this is a linkup. Join the movement!

    Here I was thinking I need to blog but I couldn’t think of anything to blog about and I read this post! I have so much happiness at the moment to be thankful for and now I’m going to get it all in words. Thanks for the inspiration!

    That looks like it was a ton of fun. One of these days I need to set up a blogger meet-up for SLC bloggers, there are already a lot of different groups but I don’t really feel like I fit in with any of the current ones.
