We are now in October, one of the best months of the year. Do you know why it's the best? HALLOWEEN IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!! Halloween is literally only 3 weeks away and that means that all of the best things are happening right now.

People are planning costumes. Costumes are an awesome part of Halloween. You can be anyone and anything, appropriate or not. Some costumes are so creative and you can tell people spent hours putting them together. It might seem like they're going to a cosplay convention. And others...are more like Jim Halpert from The Office.

The decorations this time of year are crazy. Some people choose to go with just a little bit of fall in their lives, like putting a wreath made of leaves on their door. Others go wild and their whole front yard looks like a cemetery and their back yard is filled with awesome Halloween inflatables. And the whole family gets to experience carving pumpkins, which can be a part of your decorations! Some pumpkins are beautifully carved and others are typical jack-o-lanterns.

Halloween is also a very family friendly holiday. Some holidays kids just don't get. Like what even is Labor Day and why do we celebrate it? This holiday is for everyone, too, so the whole family can enjoy and even dress to a theme. It also means that your whole family isn't going to come over and expect a fully cooked meal and a super clean house. Great for moms, dads, and kids everywhere.

This time of year also means awesome candy. With all of the candy you can possibly find anywhere, you cannot go wrong. And since it's fall, other awesome treats like specialty Starbucks drinks, baked pumpkin seeds, and candy corn are easily accessible to you.

I personally love Halloween because I can watch Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas over and over without feeling judged. These movies totally set the mood for an awesome Halloween season. You can even bet me money that I will be playing "This is Halloween" over and over again on Halloween. They're also great movies and perfect for everyone to watch.

One last reason why Halloween is the best because it's basically personalized. You can do whatever you want. If Halloween isn't your thing, you don't have to celebrate. Or you can celebrate it too much and go all out. You can dress to the nines in a flapper costume or wear a sheet and be a ghost. Or you can just do your typical family traditions go trick-or-treating. It's all up to you! I hope you have a fabulous Halloween month!

Cole And Savannah LaBrant’s Love Story Is Proof That There Is A Life After A Toxic Relationship

I promise, it's not the end.

Toxic relationships are draining. They become a black hole, where everything you once knew becomes muddled and it suffocates you, trapping you.

Savannah LaBrant knew that all too well. In her new book co-written with her husband Cole, the popular YouTubers and social media influencers had been going through a lot in their personal lives at the time.

Her parents divorced after her father had an affair, and her previous boyfriend had cheated on her, and her whole life began to feel like a lie.

Then along came Tommy.

Like in most toxic relationships, Tommy seemed to be the best guy ever at the start. Not too long into their relationship, though, things started to go downhill quickly.

After the two slept together, the "super sweet boyfriend" Tommy had been disappeared. He got what he wanted. He only cared when he wanted more. The fighting continued for two more months until Savannah had had enough and broke up with Tommy.

She shortly found out, though, that she was pregnant.

Tommy shifted again. He seemed excited, even talking about marriage. Again, it was short-lived, because six months into her pregnancy, Savannah found out that he, too, had cheated on her. She ended the relationship, but the two continued to be off and on for quite some time, for the sake of their newborn daughter.

He'd swear everything would change. Everything would be better. Everything would be different. He asked for chance after chance and Savannah continued to try to make things work.

But it always ended in fighting, hurting, and crying.

Toxic relationships take a toll, physically, emotionally, and mentally. It twists your way of thinking and idea of self-worth. Savannah stayed with Tommy even though he cheated on her and drank a lot, which she had done before but now it made her uncomfortable. She got stuck in a seemingly endless cycle of getting hurt.

Her family saw right through it. They begged her to leave him, but the toxicity had its hold on her. She wanted to fix him. She told them they didn't understand. She didn't want to admit it to herself that she deserved better. They continued to pray that God would send a better man into her life.

Then along came Cole.

He was everything Savannah and her family had prayed for. He respected her, he loved her, and he loved Savannah's daughter Everleigh. The two overcame 2,200 miles of distance after having met online and started dating. Fast forward, they're engaged. A little bit more, they're married.

Cole and Savannah LaBrant's relationship is proof that a toxic relationship doesn't mean the end.

Savannah found someone who made her feel beautiful, made her feel worthy, made her daughter feel loved, and showed her a life completely unlike what she had known before.

Savannah thought she could never escape the terrible relationship she had been in before she met Cole. She was left empty, exhausted, and afraid she'd never find someone since she had a child. Cole was the answer to her prayers.

No matter what you have endured, you will still find love and be loved. You are deserving of a healthy, safe love that benefits and furthers your life. You will overcome the toxic chapter in your life, blossom into everything you've always wanted to be, and be loved by the right person.

Take a note from Savannah: Don't give up. You never know who you're going to run into at the mall.
