WHAT! October 1st?! Seriously when did August and September happen? I literally woke up this morning and was in some state of shock. October is a very special month for so many reasons. First off, I love Halloween. The idea of candy and costumes just screams fun. Second, my love for pumpkins and pecans could not possibly get any higher than it is and October is like the final push of permission to start using them in everything. The reason I love this month the most though is because it is my lovely husbands' birth month, and this birthday is a significant one for us because it is the first of his since we've been married. I'm struggling with birthday ideas too by the way. It's hard to top the gift he gave to me (an entire weekend in Charleston with my favorite people) so the brainstorming has begun because the day is creeping up on us. Clearly I need some help with organization in my life because I couldn't even believe it was October, so I've decided to put together a fall bucket list so that I can make sure I do everything I want to this season.
