Hello October.

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. 
These three are growing in their affinity for you as well. 

They don't seem to get the whole changing of seasons=changing of style/color clothing, but I know they love you anyway.  Your sweet little pie pumpkins made them so happy while they glued macaroni and googly eyes.
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.
No words needed, right?  You so *get* this, October.  I know you love to regale us with your fine must-get-outside-to-soak-up-the-lovliness days.
I like this season of our lives, October.  I will miss these little bitties-they grow so fast, just like the plants in the garden.  Thanks for sharing it with us.
Oh, and while I've got you on the line...do you think you might bring us some rain?  That "beach" is not really a beach...It should be several feet under water.

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.

I can't tell you how intensely happy it made me to open this box and dig through its contents.  AHHHHHH!!  Next Girls' Night Out will have to be a fall baking party :)
