As much as I didn’t want summer to end, there is something beautiful about the beginning of a new season.
Fall is a time to reset, reassess your goals and set new ones. New possibilities exist if you are just willing to see them.
Welcome to another month in review! This one is going to be short because, well honestly I’ve just been trying to settle into our new home, find work and get to know my new hometown.
So here we go!
In September 2017…
Sunny September days have had me craving nature and getting active outside. Lake Pfäffikon is so beautiful and only a 10 minute walk from our apartment. I love living this close to a lake and exploring all the trails that exist around here!

In September I wrote a blog post about why I’m choosing a minimalist lifestyle and shared some tips on how you can also embrace this life of less. I’m constantly working on this mindset shift and learning more about myself as I go.
In case you need more reasons to embrace a minimalist lifestyle… here are twenty!
September was a month full of challenges.
We found ourselves asking the question of what the hell are we doing here?
Expat life with a twist as it turns out, is not always perfect! But the setbacks and challenges we face are lessons in life that we would have never learned if we stayed in our comfort zone. These challenges teach us that even if you fail, you always have the choice to get back up and try again. They teach us to keep our head up. To stay ambitious.
And I’ve come to realize that nothing every really goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. From there, it’s only onward and upward.
Enjoying this beautiful September day exploring my new surroundings and breakfast with my mom @jucker_farm 💛Feeling so blessed to have her visiting and getting to spend some time with her before she heads back home to Canada. Sunshine and great company always make for a good day 🙌🏻 PS: I wonder how many pumpkins it took to make this owl? 🎃🦉🎃🦉#feelinggrateful #morningslikethese
Throwback to last Friday and this cute Ticinese Grotto in Ascona! I mean who wouldn't want to enjoy a romantic dinner at a beautiful place like this?! 🌿👫I hope you can spend some time exploring a new city, town or neighbourhood this weekend. You might just find a gem like this! 💎💫 #happyfriday #fridayfeels #thatsdarling #finditliveit
What I’m Listening To
Currently my favourite badass bossbabe podcast I love listening to is Jenna Kutcher’s Goal Digger Podcast. On her podcast, Jenna discusses everything from blogging, entrepreneurship, goal setting, business success and everyday life. Her fun and inspiring podcasts have been motivating to keep doing what I love – blogging!
Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally.
It comes from what you do consistently.
Goodbye September and hello October 2017!
