October, you know you're my favorite. You've always been my favorite and all my life I've looked forward to your visit-with the promises of apples, pumpkins, mild weather and fun harvesty activities. Last year, you kinda let me down. A lot. But I forgive you. And I look forward to making up with you. Thanks so much for how hard you tried to be your amazing self today. 30 more days, love...30 more days.
Today you pleased us with your cooler weather. We surely enjoyed driving with the windows down and feeling the cool breeze. Thanks! Keep up the good work.
Maybe you didn't have anything to do with it, but I promise I noticed those lower gas prices on this first day of your visit. Oh, and LOVE the clear, blue skies you brought.
True to form, everyone was celebrating your return...we chose to check out the Fall Fest at Calloway's nursery. Violet wanted to see all the plants. Of course, there was plenty of red, orange and yellow on the palette.
You know, something I've grown to really love about you since moving to Texas is that you offer a more pleasant, more forgiving time to plant. I can almost taste the fresh broccoli, cauliflower...
raspberries and blueberries.
So October, you just keep on pulling out your stops, and we'll keep on living up to your name. Sure, we shouldn't put the pressure on you like that, but I'm facing a bit of a trust issue with you after all you pulled last year. I do swear, though, the happiness you bring to this house inspires.
