I love October. Bountiful harvests of crisp apples, leaves strewn on the ground, an abundance of color everywhere, pumpkins, hot cider, halloween – I love it all. I love jeans and boots and sweaters. I love the warmth of the October sun during the day and the mystique of clear, chilly October nights. This is my FAVORITE time of year. I am reminded of how beautiful Virginia is, again.
