October is a beautiful month, isn’t it? Full of crisp air, sweaters out of storage, leaves changing colors and crunching under your feet. The start of the holiday season before the holiday rush. I think October is my favorite month.
On Facebook, I asked “What are some of your favorite fall/harvest moments?” Each reply was unique to the individual commenter, but there was one running theme: pumpkin. It seems pumpkin everything is what gets people most excited about October.

Tonight we went to Riverside. We took three of our favorite people to see The Mission Inn’s Festival of Lights.
I’m too wonderfully exhausted to write today’s Blog post. So I leave you with these teasers instead.
And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
