The Top Ten Things I Love About October

Yes, I know it's December. A mere less-than-two-weeks from Christmas. But in my harried mind, it is still October. The last two months have kind of gotten away from me. The days are zipping by at all-time record speeds this year. And the only post I really cared about getting up for October was the one in which I declare the many things I love about that orange-y month.

I think it will be easier for me to transition into December-themed blog posts if I don't leave any unfinished business.

So without further ado, I present you a throw back to our first lavish, glorious days of fall this year:

10. The leaves: on trees, falling through the air, gathered and tucked around my house for fuh-reee!
9. The pumpkins: on front porches, on dining room tables.
8. Apples...and the apple orchards. And the fresh honey.
7. The crisp air.
6. Autumn sunlight.
5. Woodsmoke.
4. Cookouts.
3. Bundling up in scarves just because I finally can!
2. Halloween candy.
1. Beginning my personal countdown to Christmas.

Thank you for bearing with me. I'll try to catch up to real time now.
