greetings in october.

goodbye september. hello october.
goodbye school starting. hello much anticipated holiday breaks
goodbye empty mantel. hello decorative witches, pumpkins and owls.
goodbye labor day. hello halloween.
goodbye to the tail end of hot days. hello to fall's, slow to arrive, breeze.
goodbye dusty house. hello to hours of cleaning.
{what better way to start off a new month, right?}
goodbye pumpkins. hello jack-o-lanterns. 
goodbye gladiators. hello closed-toe shoes.
goodbye grapefruit burt's bee chapstick. hello to the original, a.k.a: the best.
{you were fun for summer- but nothing beats the original flavor.}
goodbye rock and roll. hello "that's showbiz".
goodbye to dry, clean air. hello to almond harvest and itchy eyes.
goodbye to the final days of summer. hello autumn. 
{it's simply my favorite time of year and my favorite season.}
goodbye to feeling a little lost. hello to general conference
goodbye to being a lazy wife. hello to baking pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
goodbye to wondering. hello to elder carlson finally receiving 5 of my letters. 
goodbye to little or no make-up. hello to nothing but, baby lips
goodbye to summer clothes. hello to as many layers as i can pile on.
goodbye to missing my parents. hello to a little visit this month.
goodbye peanut butter. hello almond butter- i'm hooked. 
goodbye flip flops. hello boots with heavy socks. 
goodbye trying to be good. hello to {still} wanting a puppy. 
goodbye september. hello october.
