The Entire Month of October
That's right, my Fall Favorite #3 is the entire month of October and here's why:
It is full of Birthdays: Nana, Bumpa, and Aunt Bonnie. All of their birthdays fall at the end of the month which means we would always get together for Halloween themed birthday parties. As a February baby, I was jealous!
The fall foliage peaks in New Hampshire during the month of October. I always enjoyed driving up the Kangamangus Highway and the White Mountains to see the beautiful colors that October has to offer.
My husband and I had our first date (10/27/02), got engaged (10/27/07), and got married (10/25/09) all during the month of October.
HALLOWEEN! That means candy! I know you can buy Reece's and Snickers through out the year, but there is just something special about having a sack full of individually wrapped candies to make a girl smile!
Here's a look at some of my favorite October Memories
My brother, Wesley, and I in our homemade-by-mom costumes.
It gets really cold in NH even in October, so we always had to pack on the layers before heading out for trick-or-treating.
My cousin Mitchel, my brother Wesley, and I posing for pre-candy pictures.
My aunt Roberta, my mom, my dad as McGruff the Drug Dog, and my cousin Tim as ET.
My mom caught me dipping into the Halloween Candy!
My cousin Tim kicking our butts in a good ol' fashion bobbin' for apples game.
Carl and I on our first anniversary, 10/27/03
Our wedding day, 10/25/09. Nature couldn't have given us a better backdrop for our photo's.
Now, on to the good stuff. I can't possibly put the entire month of October into the basket so here is the next best thing. (Sorry, no picture of the basket-I pre-wrote this post with the intention of adding the basket photo-but now I'm having issues uploading pictures. I'll add the photo when Blogger decides to work right again!)
*In honor of my Nana's birthday- a bag of her favorites- black jelly beans *In honor of my wedding- a bag of DOVE candies (I gave DOVE candies at my wedding because Carl use to hide bags of them for me at work when we started dating) * a Halloween and Pumpkin inspired notepad and pen *Vintage postcards from the White Mountains of New Hampshire * a decorative Pumpkin dish
I hope you enjoyed my Fall Favorite #3. I'll be posting Fall Favorite #4 soon so stay tuned!
