October of my favorite months of the year!  With Autumn, my birthday, and Halloween arriving just around the corner, it is a spooktacular month for me indeed!  

Memories of the pumpkin patch, arts and crafts, trick-or-treating, and Halloween parties fill my head with nostalgia.  

And oh the's difficult to deny all of the delicious sweets at this time of year.  Apple Hill, located in the country hills of Placerville, California sells some of the best apple treats I have ever tasted...

Apple berry pie, apple donuts, carmel apples, apple cider, apple wine...  I will miss that lovely little place this year as I won't be able to make the trip up to Northern California during the Fall.  I just brought out the holiday storage bin, and unloaded all of my Halloween decor to celebrate the spooky season.   

Throughout the month, we will be posting Halloween related thoughts as it is one of our most favorite holidays! 

Happy October ;-)

Yes, love this month, too, Jess. Such great memories of trick-or-treating as a kid, then of making the costumes and doing it with my own daughter. And the decorations!! I don't decorate with witches and gravestones, but I am a real pushover for a toothy Jack-o-Lantern!
Have a BOO-tiful weekend!
