October is just so good.
Trees prepare for winter in a firey blaze. Sunlight slants sideways with a sexy wink before lights out. Stoves warm meaty stews with carrots, potatoes, onions and leeks. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cakes, pumpkin oatmeal (hello Trader Joe’s), pumpkin soup, pumpkin jack o’ lanterns, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin lattes … pumpkin pies!
God. I. Love. It.
