October is one of my favorite months of the year. Here’s just a few of my favorite things about the month:

It means corn mazes…

Navigating the maze

It means changing leaves…

338: Fall leaves, leaves fall

It means pumpkins…

Pumpkin Patch

It means coffee… (okay so this one isn’t exactly October specific, but you start drinking more of it in October)

348: Vanilla Latte Art

It means scary things…

Spider webs

And it means football…

Cameron Yoe vs Lexington Eagles

It means Mums…


It means Oktoberfest…


It means Halloween…

Happy Halloween

It means birthdays…


Yup. I’m pretty partial to October. What are some of your favorite things about this month?

Looking ahead 31 days

Fall leavesOctober 1st. August seemed to drag, but September was over in the blink of an eye. Now its October, and I have no doubt it’ll pass even quicker.

I love fall. Absolutely love it. Right now I have the windows open, listening to rain falling gently, tree frogs chirping. It’s 60° at the moment, and the breeze feels wonderful. I have fall decorations up inside and outside, and tonight I flipped on the fireplace insert. I didn’t turn any heat on, but the glow just seemed right.

Fall means pumpkin patches, corn mazes, Oktoberfest, and football. It means fun socks, sweaters, and pumpkin spiced lattes. Ghost stories and horror flicks make for fun thrills.

It means my parent’s wedding Anniversary is just around the corner, and some very special birthdays aren’t far behind.

I luckily should have two or three photoshoots this month. My husband’s schedule is quite full this month as well. My parents may be visiting later in the month, which is always a treat. And speaking of treats…


I think I have my costume figured out. I just have to make sure one key component still fits. I’ll admit it: I’m always excited about Halloween!

I’m also participating in NaBloMo this month. (National Blog Posting Month) I hope it will help me get back on track with blogging regularly.  I rarely post about the day’s prompt, but I like a lot of the prompts I see this month. The theme is “Mask” which should be fun. Since, when I think mask, I think hiding something or yourself. Exploring the many things one may hide will be interesting.

Welcome to October! Please don’t be in any hurry to leave… lets enjoy the month and its many treats it brings.
