Good October morning to you....its time for an another installment of By Invitation Only where a group of bloggers get together and each serves up their own interpretation of that months said theme. This months is titled "Thoughts on October".....and what does this month mean to us?
This was a fun one for me because A. I love fall B. I do have a few fun things on my agenda, C. Its my sons birthday month and D. the sleeveless shirt season is officially over..woo hoo!.......so we have some nice things that happen to fall in October. I am sure it has a slightly different meaning for each of us but here is my own personal thoughts on the month.........
My oldest sons birthday is in October....hard to believe he is turning 25 this year!
It means soccer games. Lots of them. Love it when I have a reason to throw on a toasty sweater or wrap. And love it when they win!
It means having an opportunity to wear and buy more beautiful soft cashmere scarves and sweaters...just love the "cozy season"
October is a license for lots of cooking of delicious comfort foods. Nothing is off limits:) Including a decadent chicken pot pie.....
It is the perfect month for carving out time for a one or two day roadtrip to admire and ogle over falls parade of colors, nothing beats fall foliage in the Northeast!
For some reason I get very into antique stores in the fall...so October is a time to explore and discover some new ones!
This particular October means road trip with one of my dearest friends in the whole world...we are heading to beautiful Newport, Rhode Island!
October is a month ripe forapple picking
October means adding a little fall decor throughout thehouseto welcome in the new season
It means Halloween and getting to see all the cute little kids in their adorable costumes!
October is all about gorgeous clothes and an excuse for a little retail therapy (hellooooo Ralph Lauren)
A surplus of apples...hopefully enough to be inspired to bake that homemade apple pie!
October is a time for quiet walks with Teddy taking in the magic of the season of fall
A great excuse to get a brand new fabulous handbag....like clockwork every fall, I indulge and splurge on a really great new bag.
And lastly October is a month like every other to be thankful for good health, the blessing of family and company of great friends....you included!
So that sums up October and what it means to me....a lot of goodness, and hopefully happy times ahead. How about you....what does October mean to you?
