Happy October! For some reason, and I'm not quite sure why, I've never liked October. In the past, that is. I think it had to do with the "O" thing. I like certain letters over others. I love A, S, W, R, and M's. I don't like C, U, or O. I know--I'm strange that way. But, this year, I feel like I'm welcoming October with both arms. It helps that it dropped nearly 15 degrees from September 30th to October 1st. It feels officially fall. And I'm pulling out my sweaters, the pumpkin spice candles, doing Harry Potter marathons and trying out new squash recipes.
