First Monday

Today is the first of October, one of my favorite months of the year.  For me, October marks the true start of autumn--my favorite season of colors, food, clothes and holidays.  As usual, it is shaping up to be a pretty busy month for me, but I will not complain just yet...

On the Facebook page, I posed a question about new beginnings because for many of us, October marks a transition point.  October is the start of the fiscal year in the federal government (something that every DC denizen knows).  Today is also the first day of the new Supreme Court term (something that every law nerd knows).  October is the month when most women change over their wardrobes from sundresses and sandals to sweaters and boots.  October is the month for observances, such as Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness.  October brings us Oktoberfest, which like most good Americans, I enjoy despite the fact that I am not even a smidge German.  October is also Apple Month, Caramel Month, Pizza Month, and Sausage Month. 

Are you suddenly craving candy apples or sausage pizza?

Yesterday I attended a baby shower for a friend and it gave me hope (again) that God can and will show up when least expected. So on this October 1st, I am choosing to believe in miracles!

And for now, that is all I wanted to say.  Happy Monday and Happy October!
