Thinking Of October

 We are now just three days away from October. It's my favorite month. 

October is a big birthday month for our family starting with my birthday on the 3rd. Then we have my daughter in law Kayleigh's birthday on the 7th, my granddaughter Isla on the 10th, my granddaughter Klaire on the 11th, my great nephew Camden on the 12th, my brother in law Dan on the 13th! Whew! My mother in law's birthday was October 31st, and we'll always remember her day.

September has been a beautiful month with the changing light from the sun as we moved toward the Autumnal Equinox, the beginning of leaves changing, and the cool evenings. October will be like this but more of it. Cooler days, all the leaves will change and bring such beauty that it can make your heart swell. 

We will be taking two fall foliage trips this year both in our own state. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resourses our Pennsylvania has a longer and more varied fall foliage season than any other state in the nation, or anywhere in the world! {here}

We'll be going to the Laurel Highlands, and up to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. My parents will be coming along, and Wes and Rachel will come along at least to the PA Grand Canyon. 

We will host our annual Fall Fest again this month. Just figuring out the date. 

I foresee lots of evening fires outside, warm and nutritious meals, a few pumpkin desserts.

What are you looking forward to in October? 


  1. know me, all summer, all the time, but for some reason, this year, I am looking forward to October. We have a few trips of our planned and a lot of home decor DIYs that are all very cozy in nature. Your plans sound lovely, especially those pumpkin desserts!!

  2. September has been a blur here . . . a mixture of busyness (life in the fast lane) and sickness (life in the slow lane) . . . so I am looking forward to October even more than usual! It is one of my favorite months too! You have some lovely trips and lovely days ahead of you!

  3. Sounds as if it will be a wonderful, full month. I didn't know that there was a Grand Canyon of PA. You'll take lots of photos throughout the month. 🤞🏼 I hope to enjoy a colorful month. I usually take October off from blogging, but who am I kidding? I'm taking most months off from blogging. 😏
