I woke up this morning with my body warm and my head just the slightest bit chilly and thought to myself, "I love October." This is perhaps my favorite time of year for several reasons. The leaves are changing setting our beautiful Utah mountains ablaze with orangey goodness. The clear blue skies are deceptively still sunshiny, while the air is crisp and cool. And perhaps most importantly, the holidays are just around the corner.
After Yoga on Saturday my sister and I went shopping for some holiday decor and I realized that I am in dire need of some holiday-specific magic in my home. We have been fairly transient during our nearly six year marriage, moving about seven times, and so basically I am perpetually decorating my house with just the basic wall coverings... I have yet to really get to changing any of the decor for seasons.
I hit the stores today and came home with some really cute Halloween decorations. As lame as it may sound, I want JJ (and future kids) to have fond memories of the holidays. For me, part of that is having the home look festive.
I am now in the center of Halloween, and I really DO love Ocotber!
Now on to pumpkin carving and hot cocoa!
