Hello October!

First of all...where did September go? Is it just me or is time literally flying?

October has arrived bringing promises of chilly days and nights, bond fires, leaf raking,
brilliant color, pumpkins galore, earthy scents enhanced by spicy cinammon, cloves, nutmeg and pumpkin, fires in the fireplace, mugs of hot apple cider, earlier dusks, the shifting sunshine as it trickles through the windows of our homes...and the cozy visits with friends and family.

What an absolute lovely time of year!

William Cullen Bryant describes it best....

"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile."

PS... I love Winter too and am always anticipating SNOW and yes....that somewhat illusive
White Christmas! One day! One day! :)
