October, oh how I Love you.
The weather changing, the leaves turning, the rain and breeze swirling, the twinkle lights glowing and pumpkin pumpkins everywhere.
A time for Magic.
I have been trying to just immerse myself in every single day this month.
I'm not sure why it slips out of my fingers so very quickly.
I think the only way to really hold onto it is with photographs.
But the best part of the photographs is the gathering of random bits and bobs for the photos.
Stealing some leaves from the garden.
Sprinkling fairy dust around.
Zinnias grew like bean stalks, huge and strong this year.
How I love their fuchsia petals with orange and blue and black and gold.
Sparkle, twinkle, hocus pocus...
And lighting candles...
Something I just adore doing.
The ritual of lighting the match and slowly bringing it up to the candle.
And then the golden glow only a candle can impart - true magic.
So I was thinking...
Instead of having a formal party this year, because I feel like we are all just too busy and life is so chaotic...
There must be an easier way - this is the thought that swirls through my mind these days.
And then I thought, of course there is!
I decided I would simply post my own Halloween post in a few days and if anyone happens to do a post I can link to it in a special spot at the bottom of my own Halloween post. Easy as pie.
Doesn't that sound snazzy?
Right now I'm simply thoroughly enjoying these last days of October (insert tears).
I don't want it to go away so quickly.
Alas, there is nothing as sweet as the thing that is slipping through your fingers.
The thing you can not grasp.
SO the best thing to do it close our eyes and smell the air.
And remember the moment.
Memories are like a gift from our brain.
It's like, an attic in our mind.
Here, shuffle it here.
I'll keep it for you, forever...
Happy happiest wonderful smiles.
Why do we love autumn like this?
I LOVE you Autumn.
Let's pinky swear to really enjoy these last 7ish days or so.
