My Favorite Month

I think October's my absolute favorite month of the year. I love autumn, it's my favorite season, and while growing up Septembers in Wisconsin felt like fall, it definitely doesn't hit here in Boise until October. I love the brisk chill on the air, grey rains, explosions of color in the tree canopies, the slightly slowed-down feeling that preceeds the holiday bustle. I like pumpkins and apples (especially pie, mmm), red and orange, fuzzy socks, football games, and warm sweaters. I love October for being my birthday ('cause everyone loves their birthday, even when you are old ;-P) and Halloween is lots of fun too. Welcome October, my old friend, may you be as wonderful a month as you've been in years past.

While fall is my favorite season too I have to admit that the photo looks more like Wisconsin than Idaho... I think I'd rather have Idaho's temps though! You are so lucky to live in such a great place!
