I love this month. Lissa listed her top reasons why she loves it on her blog and when I commented I got inspired to make my own list. I love lists, too. Here goes, in no particular order.
My first daughter was born in November.
Housework seems to be easier and I'm a little more joyful about it.
Everything is cool and fresh and clear.
There could be snow!

Baking, muffins, banana bread, pumpkin spice cake, cream cheese frosting...
Thanksgiving and all that it entails.
Pink cheeks and mittens.
Hot chocolate, hot tea, warm friendship circles. We have more company.
I tend to get out all my hobbies. Knitting, scrapbooking, quilting. You name it and I'll dig it out in November.
I get a little more creative. I dress a little better. I write letters. I move furniture.
No more lawn mowing!
Candles. Lots and lots of candles.
