October Warm Up – by Annette Rochelle Aben

October has such a warm energy. The leaves on many of our trees turn from familiar shades of green to a rainbow of blazing red hues.  Apple cider mills are active selling jugs of pressed, sweet liquid, donuts and pumpkins. And don’t forget the hay rides. We wrap ourselves in thicker clothing not only when we go outside but inside our homes, in the hopes of staving off the inevitable need to crank on the furnace.

We also warm up in our hearts and minds, as we prepare for the coming holidays. Thoughts of family and friends gathering, get the creative juices flowing. Baked goods are cooling on tables in kitchens and we take the time to find special places for cheery decorations to add just the right touch.

Here’s to October and all the wonderful ways it brings warmth into our lives!

    Fantastic reminder Annette. I just love this time of year. Sweaters, blue jeans and Pumpkin Spice Lattes, football and having fun with friends. I love the beautiful leaves falling down like a blanket. Yay!

      I hear you! It’s my favorite time of year for all the reasons you mentioned and then some. So, let’s us, have the best autumn we’ve had thus far. Cheer, Marie. 🙂
