dear october

dear October,
welcome old friend!
boy you are pretty. the reds have crept down the mountain, and the yellows are slowly making their way in. fiery hillsides in every direction.....the best.

dear fall running and hiking,
you are my favorite! the cooler air, the earthy smells, the crunchy leaves underfoot.

dear snow,
noooooo. not yet snow. stay in the mountains for a little bit longer......please?

dear foods with pumpkin,
I'm excited to be reunited. 
baked goods, pastas, soups. 
What are your favorite pumpkiny foods?? tell me.

dear desert,
eeeeeeeek!!! now that the hot summer temperatures are gone, it's officially desert season! I cannot wait to sink my feet in your sand soon. 
so excited to get to my place.

dear everyone who bought the cookbook last month,
THANK YOU! thank you thank you. 
such an exciting first month.

dear everyone who hasn't bought the book yet,
get your copy now! 
It's $15.64 on Amazon....hard to beat

dear locals,
Whitney and I are having a book signing next week--Oct 8th at 7:00-8:30 at Cubby's in Provo. 
Come grab some dinner and bring your books for us to sign, and invite all your friends!

dear yoga, 
oh it feels so good to be back. 
I missed you so much this summer--I hardly ever saw you.
But twice last week! It hurt terribly..... and felt so good at the same time.

dear peaches,
I am panicking. I am not ready to say goodbye to you yet. 
I might have to gorge myself these next few days as a proper goodbye to peach season.

dear charly and luna,
you are killing me with your adorableness. 
sharing your bed at night? cuteness explosion.

dear this little red house,
I canNOT believe we have lived in you for 7 months. Where has the time gone?
you are quirky and old and awkward and I love you so much. I'm thankful every day we are here.

Dear YOU,
it's been awhile since I put desktop calendars together......but here you go! 
Happy October.
