9 Gorgeous Pictures to Inspire Your Best-Ever November

This isn't your average weekend. We're still staggering from Halloween festivities while catapulting straight into a brand new month. What song should epitomize our joy? There's always The Cure's "Friday I'm in Love", but that's a little basic. I'm a big fan of Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink to That)", which is annoyingly repetitive and but horribly catchy. What about "One More Saturday Night" by the Grateful Dead, or the adorable "Friday On My Mind" by the Easybeats? Whatever jam you play, don't just look up from your computers and note lethargically that the weekend is here. We need to celebrate.

I like to treat the start of each new month as a mini-New Years — you know, by making new resolutions, starting new projects, and thinking for the hundredth time about getting a juicer. November is a weird month in the seasonal spectrum; it's on the shivery end of fall and things are getting a little darker, but there's the bright, tryptophan-fueled light of Thanksgiving at the end of the tunnel. It's the perfect month to slow down and focus on the work (and life) you love.
