hello, october.

I made a rule that I was not allowed to bake any pumpkin flavored goods until october rolled around, so you better believe I jumped right at the chance to bake chocolate chip pumpkin cookies yesterday. I am so ready for marigold leaves, backyard camping, pumpkin patching, pumpkin carving, homemade rootbeer, sugar cookies, crisp air & thick fog, scarves & boots, candy corn & halloween, hocus pocus, and hiking through the hills. even though northern california decided to be in the 100s this week, I feel autumn right around the corner. 
this month is my absolute favorite, and I'm praying it doesn't pass as quickly as the summer months did!


  1. I feel your pain about the heatwave going on in California right now. It was supposed to be 106 today but we got lucky and it's only 100.. ha!

  2. Three cheers to pumpkin!
