Happy October, my friends!
October has always been the busiest month of the year in my world; a fun busy with birthdays, end-of-season yardwork, football, and travel, but still busy. Do you find it a crazy, busy month too?
And I’ve always thought of October as the ‘eve’ of the busy holiday month of November and December. I start getting my act together for the holidays by beginning gift idea lists, planning meals, planning baking, etc…
On a completely unrelated note, are you familiar with the Latin phrase, Omne Trium Perfectum? Simply translated, “everything that comes in three is perfect”. Storytellers, writers, and marketers have long incorporated this rule of threes into their work.
Some examples are ‘Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness’, ‘Veni, Vidi, Vici’, the three ghosts that visit Ebeneezer Scrooge, the quote ‘Third time’s a charm’, the Three Little Pigs, and the Three Musketeers. The Bible has multiple references to the power of threes; The Trinity and the Three Wiseman for example. When you start paying attention, you’ll notice many examples of the Rules of Three.
With that in mind, let’s have some fun with these perfect sets of three!
