October is the month of the year I wait for. The weather is absolutely perfect for me, my neighbourhood looks its loveliest right now, I love the return to snuggling under blankets, homemade soup, sweaters and scarves and making plans for Halloween always makes me happy. I love the warm light and the lack of bugs and the smell of fall and anticipating being thankful with my family next weekend. Maybe most importantly, by October we've all settled into our daily routine and things just seem to be easier in October.
Last weekend was the absolutely perfect October day and we took advantage of it with a trip to the gardens to run around in the sunshine, ride the carousel and eat our fill of gelato before the end of the season.
Such a good day.
The rain is coming, but for now I'm going to soak up as much October sun as I can. I know it won't hold me through the grey gloom of November, December and January, but for now I feel like I can't get enough of it.
