I love October!

I love how the cover of Skirt magazine always captures each month perfectly!

Cherish the last sunny Saturdays to sit on the porch,
the last warm days to throw open the windows,
the last long rays of light.
Soon our lives will move indoors to nest in flannel sheets,
to listen to the wind scour the eaves,
to watch movies in bed.
Soup will simmer on the stove,
lamp will be lit earlier and red wine will breathe quietly on the kitchen counter.
Umbrellas and Boots will be fruitful and multiply by the front door.
Rugs will come out of storage to pamper summer's bare feet.
We'll dream of a fireplace in the bedroom
but settle for candles that smell like evergreens and moss.
Sunday mornings will stretch into the afternoon with coffee and newspapers on the couch
and blend seamlessly into dinner in pajamas.

Welcome Home.

"A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul." ~Phillip Moffitt
