Hello Friends and happy October! ♥
In the blink of an eye we said goodbye to September and hello to October! The air has officially changed around here and it smells like fall. The nights are cool and I can feel that crispness in the air that October is so known for. We wait all year for it and it's finally here.
October, the month of Halloween and all things spooky. Also the month I go apple picking, bake pies, and eat too much candy. Can I say (in a low voice) it's the official start of holiday season?
You didn't hear it from me, but they are coming : )
So, let's catch up! ♥
I've been absent on here for two weeks, which is huge stretch for me! Life has been busy, work is busy, and John is still navigation his way around a new school. October, and fall in general, is very nostalgic to me. I long for the old days when he was a toddler and on fall days like this we would bundle up and go to the playground. He'd jump in he leaves and I remember us sitting on a bench eating apples and looking at the trees. The simple things. It was nice. I miss that.
I baked yesterday! It had been awhile.
I've had this can of pumpkin in my pantry for ages. It's been taunting me. Yesterday I finally put it to use and I made these pumpkin chocolate chip bars!
The smell when they were baking was beyond divine!
I hope you are enjoying the start to October. The leaves are just starting to change here and I've moved my work desk into my bedroom so I can be near the window to watch the trees. I don't want to miss a thing.
Have a wonderful day my friends! Stay cozy!! xoxox
Rob would disagree! ♥
