Cooler days, crisp mornings, pumpkin patches, corn fields, carnivals, craft shows, leaves, sweaters, boots....
These are things I miss about my Octobers back home. I used to go home every October for the full month just to enjoy it all. I can't believe my boy was once so tiny.
We make the best of what we have here and go to our pumpkin patches in black top parking lots. While sipping on coffee drinks pretending it is cold out.
My St. Louis Cardinals will play games on October chilly nights and I will root them on from our air conditioned living room.
Life is completely full and crazy right now, not how I wanna spend my October days but we will muddle thru and remember to take time to stop and carve a pumpkin or two.
I know I can't relive what we used to be, life changes and thats why we have memories.
It is hard to look at pictures from back just 4 short years ago and see how much life has changed.
So enjoy the leaves, the rain, the wind, the cool crisp air for me. I miss it so.
