October’s arrival always brings a smile to my face. It’s my favorite time of year! Yes, even here in South Florida, where we don’t have a real changing of seasons, I still love it! The air becomes (slightly) cooler. The holidays are almost upon us. I start thinking about the year so far, what I’ve accomplished, and what I still have yet to achieve. Not to mention, MORE PUMPKIN. Always, more pumpkin. 🙂
October always makes me want to slow down a bit and take it all in. I start out the beginning of each Fall thinking I’m going to be able to revel in the season, but it always seems to fly by so quickly. Of course, we are very busy with the kids, work, school, homework, karate class, and planning activities such as going to the zoo and visiting the pumpkin patch.
Not to mention, we can now say that “next month” is November… which is when Zachary will turn 6. I’ll save my thoughts of disbelief of that for next month’s post! 🙂
Hopefully, in between the chaos, I will still find time for some of the quiet that I love about this time of year.
Are you an October lover, too?
