welcome to october!

october brings with it the promise of...

sunny, clear afternoons & crisp breezes
morning mist & eerie fogs at night
coffees on cafe patios,
to take advantage of the slowly receeding warm weather
my first attempt at thanksgiving dinner
bikes & boots crunching through dry leaves
scarves & vests & cozy sweaters
apple cider brewing on the stove
fun costumes & lots of candy!

to kick off the start of this most autumny month,
last night i made potato & leek soup
with the help of julia child's recipe...

...it was absolutely delightful!
wishing you a wonderful october.
