Autumn has always been my favorite season with October being my favorite month. No surprise there, I suppose, since it’s my birthday month and I definitely have cherished memories attached to the month of my birth.
Simply put, the month glows for me and this year it did not disappoint.
This sunset in Colorado earlier in the month when the sky appeared to be on fire:
This exhibit of Chihuly art in a museum in Colorado Springs:
The way the afternoon sun ignites these grasses near my home:
The glow of Halloween decorations in my neighborhood:
The simplicity of this little pumpkin catching a ray of sunlight on my kitchen counter:
And then there’s the inevitable lighting of the candles on the birthday cake. Thankfully my husband elected to just use the numbers, as the glow of all those candles may have been a bit much!
However, the joke may end up being on him. He turns 60 in just a few days, also in October, and I might not be as nice.
Makes me wonder if a person can light that many candles all at once without the first one burning too far down by the time one gets to the 60th wick! 🙂
Happy Birthday to you both. Wish I could celebrate with you. I love that frame in the foreground of the cake shot (Shells? Buttons?) but my favorite photo is that pumpkin!! Just beautiful!
Happy Birthday Jules and Happy Birthday Jim! October truly is a golden time of year – my favorite month I think. Love to you both from me and Mike!
Love back to you Alex! Hope all is well with you in the beautiful state of Virginia…October is truly beautiful there and I miss all that color!
Happy birthday, Jules. And happy autumn!
