Bring it on, October

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Mister Magnolia

Oh October. That blessed time when we celebrate and give thanks, dress up in costumes, don our woollies, play in the leaves, cradle cups of hot tea to keep hands warm–and curl up with a good book.

Bring it on, October!
