I dig October.

My most favorite month of the year has arrived!

I can layer my tops and stuff my skinny jeans in my high boots.

The weather is perfect. It's crisp and cool but not yet cold so the electricity/gas bill is super low!

I love Fall decorations and the scents that represent this month.

The colors. Who doesn't love brown, red, green, orange and black?

The leaves start to fall. I enjoy tolerate raking the leaves into one huge pile and behaving like one big kid when I get to jump into them. That is the only part I like about raking.

I can eat a ton of candy and not feel guilty because, well, Halloween is right around the corner.

I can hand out candy to cute trick-or-treaters.

I can break out in costume and no one will stare.

Hubs can wear a green mullet and no one would stare.

I will carve my first pumpkin. I can't wait to have a Jack O'Lantern!

And best of all, I get to celebrate my birthday and be the queen for a year day.

I dig October.

Autumn is just a lovely season! It's been chilly here in Germany, but I love October for the same reasons as you. My son's birthday is also this month as well!

I love October too!
I much rather be in jeans and boots then flip flops and tanks.

I cannot buy Halloween candy until the absolute last minute. Can't stand the temptation! Love fall though :)

I think October is fabulous for ALL the reasons you mentioned. I especially would be interested in seeing your hubby sporting a green mullet. Yes, I think that would be fantastic.

Your birthday was already in my calendar :)

For me it's all about sweaters and boots. :)
We think alike...

And yayness for your upcoming birthday! I have it marked!
