Looking Back at October

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 11/03/2014 - 11:28

The scented candle is burning, the fireplace is keeping us warm, and the vibrant sunny days of October are behind us as we start to drift into a November that feels more like winter. We've put our winter-weight duvet on the bed, and it's hard getting up in the morning because it's so cozy in bed, and so much less so outside of it. But the dark and the cold brings with it some of my favorite things: soup and blankets and tea and holidays and family. Much of the next two months will be spent with family as Jordan and I prepare to both travel and to welcome people to Oregon. The excitement and anticipation is building. But before I get too far ahead of myself, I want to look back at some moments from October.
