October is the start to a whirlwind of traditions in my own little world. Harry Potter movie parties on deck and cooler evenings calls for cuddle sessions with the entrancing All Souls Trilogy. October is also the start of baking season in my home and trick-o-treating with my god-kid and nephews adds the spice to my PSL. It is a month of celebration- the 6th being the OG Bebot's birthday and now the birth of this humble abode in the World Wide Web.
One of my favorite things to do in October is to visit my local pumpkin patch because being basic is OK. Cue Girls Just Wanna Have Fun chorus. The scent of furry farm animals waiting to be loved concocted with brewing apple cider in the air is chamomile for my busy soul. The crunch of hay on the ground, families gathered for the perfect Autumn photograph, and a sea of orange pumpkins in all sizes have become significant sweet expectations.
Purging (and sometimes pruning) of my closet births a new warddrobe of deep colors, longer sleeves, and lots of thick stretchy yoga pants #amensomebody. This jewel-toned maxi top from Free People casted its spell on me to easily add fascination to my closet. Floral stitches of embroidery, bewitching flared sleeves, and its free flowing material is a fairy tale of its own.
October is my invitation to chase slow; a time to peel any cynical, callouses in my heart. October traditions resurrects the child-like wonder inside that has been buried by the year's adult routine. This month urges me to look back and realize all the miracles and grace I've undeservingly received and look forward to the magic ahead.
