We love you, October.
Niamh even wants to name one of her future daughters "October."
You are just filled with goodness.
I agree with Anne of Green Gables,
"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
Philly turned 8.
Phil and I celebrated 12 years married.
There is pumpkin-flavored coffee at every turn.
And the nights are cool and crisp.
The windows are still wide open, but you need a sweatshirt and a snuggle to stay warm.
Candles yummy up the house with scents called 'fall leaves.'
And I can eat butternut squash soup by the gallon.
Then hide those pounds (necessary for winter insulation, you know) in leggings and long cardigans.
Oh! And scarves, boots, hats~ my favorites.
New episodes of our favorite shows.
And The Walking Dead.
I love me some October zombies.
Twinkle lights and pumpkins on the step.
A corn field maze with sweet friends.
Running under the big orange moon.
And Philly rocking sweatpants tucked into rainboots.
I swear he will be a trend-setter one day.
We have 2 never-sleepy kiddos.
6 (crazy) pets.
Errands and deadlines.
Work and homeschool.
Fun times with friends.
And I love our church groups and nights out.
But to be cozied up under blankets... with a late night latte and kids laughing and Phil talking about his day and the house smelling lovely and the animals all sleeping~ I love that part of fall. It always lands in October...right before it gets really cold...and the holidays are just around the corner. October is that easy and wonderful space between the excitement of summer and the rush of the holidays.
And I could linger here forever.
What does your October look like?
