A few days have passed since my pumpkin contest post, so I decided to reveal my pumpkin’s true identity… Unfortunately, there is not a winner because no one participated. Believe it or not, my previous post is the first “no comment” post that I have received in four entire months, so it was actually kind of amusing that it generated so many blank stares.
My pumpkin is supposed to be an artistic witch’s hat… Can you see it now? 🙂
My pumpkin this year is definitely scary, and it just so happens to be one of the most abstract pumpkins that I have ever carved… Honestly, I was quite disappointed with it at first, but I have thoroughly enjoyed laughing at myself and other people’s interpretations of what it is suppose to be. Therefore, I am hosting a fun contest on Maysa Rose to see if anyone can correctly guess my pumpkin carving. The winner and answer will be announced in my next post; will it be YOU? Drop your guess in the comments section below and have a safe and Happy Halloween 2018!
I think Kiwi found herself a boyfriend… These two have been attracted like magnets for the past few weeks, and I was able to catch these sweethearts on camera during this precious moment.
However, Olive is getting pretty jealous,
and Calypso is just pouting…
*I was glad to host these two beautiful guests on this month’s parakeet post! I hope that you enjoyed this as much as I did. 🙂

In exactly one week, my family will begin the journey through 13 states in 20 days. We are going to explore some of the major national parks and landmarks across the USA including: Mount Rushmore, Cadillac Ranch, Garden of the Gods, Yellowstone, Royal Gorge, and the Badlands. It is going to be such an incredible experience that I am so thankful to have… I am so blessed to be able to spend this summer with my family and make memories that will last a lifetime. I will be sure to keep you all “posted” while I am on this adventure, and I will take lots of photos to share. I hope that you join me!

Music… The mood booster that always ends your day on a good ‘note’…. The influence of your highly off-pitch voice screaming lyrics into your imaginary microphone. You think you are having a great time until you realize all of the windows of your house are open and all of your neighbors can hear you *cough*. ANYWAY, I wanted to dedicate this post to all of those music lovers out there who are always searching for new songs… Enjoy!

Reggae… Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled when I turned on my Reggae playlist this morning, and they chirped along in complete delight. This has always been their favorite music genre, and they never seem to get tired of summertime vibes.
Before I started to play the songs out loud, I was quite interested to see how they would react to my earbuds…. Unfortunately, Kiwi didn’t want to have anything to do with this little adventure, but Olive thoroughly enjoyed herself! I decided to snap a picture of this brave little bird to share with you all this morning. Happy Saturday!
