October has always been my favorite month... Halloween, my birthday, my wedding (and subsequent anniversaries), candy corn, changing leaves, and all things pumpkin. But the last couple Octobers have brought with them some difficult experiences. My fondness for the month is a little bit shaken, and I'm hesitant to celebrate wholeheartedly without hesitation or superstition.
But I'm feeling a little braver this morning and hoping for a kindly and cheerful October that brings only happy surprises. I made some wishes on a dandelion's fluff last month. I wonder if they'll come true?
