“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – Anne of Green Gables
Welcome to October. What does October mean to you? For me, it makes me think of fall festivals and getting lost in corn mazes, capturing those last few hikes in the blazing colors and rainy skies. It’s pumpkin carving and great lattes; it’s spooky movies huddled up together, with a great excuse to squeeze your lover’s hand. It’s football games, and fall colors, and sweater weather
It’s so easy to get busy in our lives —with work, our family, etc — that we don’t schedule time to really participate in those precious seasonal events. Seasonal traditions are the memory makers; they make us reminisce about our childhood, the romance of our early relationship, and then help us build new memories on top of those! So get up to the Gorge and do some cider tasting on the fruit loop; or go to a local farm and take a hayride! I personally think this season can be more romantic than Valentines Day, to be honest — so relish it. Enjoy the treasures of this season. We live in a world where there are Octobers, and that is something to be thankful for.
