To my little corner of the world where there is no limit to creativity. Where possibilities are endless. Where life happens and is embraced. And where a sense of humor is a must!

    Happy October 1st

    I just can't seem to accept that autumn is here until October rolls around. I think it's because I am still programmed for a mountainous climate. And October usually brings the changing of the leaves in the canyons, cooler nights, and often the first snow of the year.

    October also gets the ball rolling for one of my favorite holidays. Oh, I do look forward to Halloween in as much as I love to decorate, love to carve pumpkins, and love to dress up to hand out candy to our trick-or-treaters. Although, we just don't get as many trick-or-treaters as we used to.

    October is also a birthday packed month for us. We celebrate more than 12 family birthdays within 3 weeks of each other. WOW!!!! Oh, and mine is in there, too! I'll be 47 this year. I think I'll get off this subject. LOL.

    Instead, I will leave you with some October what's it's and observances. Enjoy :-)
