October is my favorite month. There are always a few warm days, but the season truly begins to change and we see these changes all around us. The colors of the trees, hats and mittens make their appearance and we become surrounded by pumpkins. From pumpkin spice tea to pumpkin bread to carved pumpkins on the front steps - it tells us fall is here. And don't forget all of the delicious apples. We were lucky enough to spend one of the warm days picking some right from the tree. I'm a little sad to see October end, but it's been another memorable one for us.
