October is by far my favorite month of the year. Aside from our wedding anniversary, the month has just always brought refreshment and comfort to me for as long as I can remember. Maybe it's because of how much I dislike the heat of summer. Maybe it's because everything becomes so vibrantly colorful... Or maybe it's just that change has come about.. we need that every once in a while, you know? J and I went to a pumpkin farm this past weekend to harvest a few of these little guys for our porch. Disregard the windswept hair. On another note, my tights are actually mustard colored - no, I did not go to the pumpkin patch to be all matchy-matchy. It was fun to get a little bundled up on a chilly morning and do festive things, however.
Another exciting event will occur this fall-- we are purchasing our first home! I will wait to post any photos until after the closing date, which is in late November. All I will say for now is that it's in town and on a lot that's over half an acre, so I see a lot of tree planting, garden building, fire pit making, and beekeeping in my future!
Happy Fall, friends. What do you love most about this time of year?
