Welcome October

October 01, 2010

October is here and I have to say it is my favorite month of year. I love that we are beginning to get cooler nights and incredibly warm and sunny days. Our days are shorter but in Nevada the sun shines, the wind stops blowing and the sunsets are spectacular. September was such a busy month with getting kids back to school and beginning three courses at once. I felt like I too was going back to school (I guess I was). October will be more settled as redlinedesign celebrates a year in business and hopefully will become a registered trademark as well. It is also my birthday month and my daughters birthday month so there is a lot to celebrate here. This is what September actually looked like:
September Business Goals
