Happy October!

fall, leaves, heart in leaves, october, happy

Today is the first day of my favorite month! But honestly, who doesn’t love this month?! And yes I love it for much more than pumpkin spice lattes, apple orchards and the leaves changing colors (although these are all great reasons too). Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, nothing compares to the being able to be whoever you want to be one time a year. I love seeing people’s creativity and it is always a great way to get out and meet new people. It just feels good to be a part of something and see how much fun everyone can have with it!

I think there is also such a refreshing feeling in the air during October. The weather starts to get a bit colder and each morning I feel refreshed. I sleep better at night, although it is harder for me to get up in the morning, but I love being so comfortable snuggled in bed. love taking advantage of being outdoors to take walks or go for a run with leaves falling all around me. And now fall is better with Emma because she loves chasing the leaves and can go for longer walks without getting too hot.

Anyway, I’m a little sad I won’t have any Halloween decorations up for a bit (still settling from the move), but check out my decorations from last year. I am very excited for this month and can’t wait to share more this month. I hope to be doing some posts on decorations, planning for a Halloween party, costume ideas and some of my fall outfits.

Happy Tuesday and more importantly, Happy October!

    Happy October! I love the month of October as well! Here in Florida that means temps in the low 80s high 70s and who doesn’t love Halloween? I mean I’ve had my Halloween/Fall decorations up for a few weeks now already hahha.

      That’s awesome! I don’t do a very good job of planning my costumes around the weather… it somehow always gets freezing here by Oct. 31 and I usually hate myself for what I choose to wear lol!

    October is my favorite month too! Love the slight chill, though it’s supposed to be in the 80’s here tomorrow, so still waiting for summer to really end.

    I, too, LOVE the crispness and freshness of fall. It’s the perfect season for me, I think :) I’m the same way with sleeping better at night (windows open, hearing the breeze, love it!) and find it sooo hard to get out of bed in the mornings. Ah well! I really, really like your new blog design as well. It’s perfectly lovely!

    Don’t hate me but I don’t love October. It means summer is over which means soon it’s going to be freezing. :(

      Lol! It’s okay I don’t hate you :) I understand… that is the only bad part too. Once October is over, or even towards the end of the month it gets SOOOO cold. Then I worry about snow and driving in it… so I can definitely see where you are coming from!
