I haven’t been blogging much, I but I have an excuse: it’s October! I know it’s a huge cliche, but I freakin’ love October.
There are Octobers, and then there are Northern Utah Octobers. The colors here are magical, the chill in the air is a harbinger of the holidays, and the mountains glow orange capped with a dusting of snow.
And then there is the coffee. I may love my fandoms, but if you want to know how I geek out the most…it’s coffee. Coffee is always delicious, always magical, but for a few short months a year, it turns into something else entirely. That first cup of coffee on a chilly morning is the best feeling in the entire world. You don’t need anything fancy, just a decent cup of coffee and maybe a splash of cream in a cool mug. Okay, okay, I’m not gonna lie, I ship coffee and cream.
We went on a hike this weekend, to see the fall colors and get exercise and spend time together as a family and so on and so forth. We went to Ogden Waterfall Canyon.
Aside from the incessant whining, it was a great hike, until Penelope fell down.
The next day we carved pumpkins. We are pumpkin-carving rock stars!
I’m not super into Halloween (I hate being scared), but I do love Autumn, costumes, candy, and all the flavors of fall.
Except Pumpkin Spice. Pumpkin Spice is gross. Pumpkin Spice can suck it.
