Summer may be my favorite season by October, by far, is my favorite month! To me, October really means the start of fall – cool, crisp weather, and the changing colors of the leaves. I love the smell of October and what October ushers in – the beginning of the holiday season. If you don’t already love October, here’s five reasons why October is the best month ever!
Okay, I may be a little biased with this one, but October means birthdays in my household! Not only do I celebrate my birthday but my son’s birthday is in October too. If you’ve been a reader since my event styling days ,you know that I LOVE throwing parties. Since having my son, I’ve been able to come up with new, fun themes and really go all out to celebrate for him. Because of #TheRona, we’ve had to tone it down this year, but we still plan on celebrating his birthday with an awesome party.
While I despise cold weather, I love cool fall mornings where I can enjoy the warmth of my morning coffee. Add in a cute coffee mug and enjoying the cool, crisp weather is a great way to get my day started. I love being able to take 10-15 minutes in the morning to myself and mentally prep myself for the day.
Bonfires and S’mores
My husband and I learned that the best time to use a fire pit is in the fall, NOT the winter! So October is the perfect time to light that backyard fire (or your indoor fireplace) and enjoy the flames! What’s even better if you have kids is being able to roast marshmallows and make your own s’mores. It makes for a great family activity that you’ll end up doing every season.
We purposefully take our family photos every October because the scenery is absolutely beautiful. Summer may have beaches and sand, but October has trees with the best colors you’ll see all year. I love watching the leaves change colors. And who doesn’t love jumping in the resulting leaf pile when they start to fall?!
By far, Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday. Although I haven’t been able to hold my annual Halloween party in some years, I LOVE decorating for Halloween. Not that I have a full front porch, I’ve already gone all out with spider webs, skeletons, and tombstones. Halloween, to me, is such a fun holiday and gives us the chance to be someone else for a day. Who doesn’t love to play dress up?!
There are so many reasons to love October so I hope I’ve given you at least one! Whether it’s enjoy that coffee in the morning or being your favorite character on Halloween, there’s so much October has to offer!
