October Confessions

Autumn in Chicago- 11/09
October is always such a fun month.  The weather and leaves start to change; it's truly a beautiful time.  But one of my favorite things about October is the return of pumpkin everything.  Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin butter, pumpkin coffee creamer, and even pumpkin beer. I love all things pumpkin. It's an obsession!

I can't believe it's November- where has the time gone? Pretty soon before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving and then on to my favorite holiday, Christmas.  In fact, I heard Christmas music today on the Verizon's TV/Radio.  Yikes! It seems to be starting earlier and earlier each year.  As I say goodbye to October, I wish everyone a fabulous November and I look forward to all that it brings, including NaNoWriMo.  Lets hope I can do it!

1.  Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliott
2.  Annexed by Sharon Dogar
