oh, october.

There's something about it, isn't there? It's different. It's fresh, and crisp. You feel most alive, most invigorated, when it comes around.

Of course, I'm talking about October. Easily one of my favorite months out of the twelve, my heart picks up a little bit when October rolls around. The brilliant hues of the leaves.... jewel-like tones lacing the trees, the coolness in the air that makes you huddle into your coat a little more, the prevalence of messy-buns and various  styles of boots and moccasins, and the azure blue sky whose color is unmatched. Time with friends on chilly weekends, running around yards and neighborhoods. Walking to the car and stepping in piles of crunchy leaves, breathing in the crisp air that makes you feel so.... alive. Waking up everyday is like opening another present, and finishing off the day with stargazing out your window, feeling full and thankful, is what I've come to realize is the best way to end a day.

It is my favorite season, easily. In case you couldn't already tell. Bonfires, hot apple cider, fresh apples from the orchard across the street, pumpkin candles, crunchy leaves, hoodies, chilly nights, and all the rest.... it's indescribable.

Oh, October. What would life be without you?

Happy Tuesday to you.
