Dear October, 

You are my nemesis. You and your sweater and scarf temperatures (Ugh! you know I love sweaters and scarfs!), football games and those gorgeous color changing trees. Pumpkin patches, apple cider and wagon rides. You and your perfect sunsets and promises of a few more warm days. You are my busiest, pull-my-hair-out, sleep deprived month. Yet, your my gateway month to the long dormant, lazy winter full of holidays, Netlfix watching, couch snuggling, date nights, dinner with friends, and sleeping in on weekends. I don't know whether I love you or hate you. Whether I am excited for you to come or for you to end. You, October. How dare you.
