October: Now Playing



It's no secret- fall is the best season EVER! Cooler, blustery days. Leaves turning gorgeous shades of red, gold and orange. Apples, pumpkins and butternut squash in abundance. Sandalwood incense burning, mixed with the smell of something baking with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. And the best of fall is definitely wound up in the lazy days of October. Around here, October means baking, fort building, trips to pumpkin patches, brisk walks in the chilly night air, date nights in cozy places with pastries and hot coffees, snuggles on the couch with chubby hands and bedtime books. In the background, the sounds of Nora Jones, Eva Cassidy, Brad, Neil Young's Harvest Moon (and/or Pearl Jam's cover of it:) ) are a must. But the album that is the epitime of fall would have to be U2's The Unforgettable Fire. Seriously- if you've never heard it, or if it's been a looong time since you have, do yourself a favor and play it this month. Every day.  It's that good, and it perfectly sets the mood for October. Listen to it all the way through, with no interruptions.  Light some incense, snuggle down on your couch with a hot cup of something, and play it loud. Then come back to the comment section and tell me how it was...and what's on your fall playlist. :)

  3. I admit to not being much of a Fall girl (I'm a spring baby), but all this autumn excitement is a bit contagious :)
