October celebrations

This is a big month for birthdays, and of course I have a big anniversary this month. All very exciting.
My nephew is turning 18. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT I AM OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE AN 18 YEAR OLD NEPHEW!!!!! I remember when he was so little we used to share cookies and watch cartoons together. I took him to the car wash once and it totally scared him. It was hilarious. Or the time I was babysitting and he was jumping on his bed and he jumped too close to the bed post. He got hurt and it was a in a very private place. He sounded like he broke and arm or a leg and when I came running he was very embarrassed and I wasn't quite sure what to do. So I gave him an ice pack and told him to talk to his dad about it when he came home.
My best friend is having a house warming this weekend and I am so excited to celebrate with her. My other best friend will be there and we will be celebrating her new engagement!!! So many exciting things happening.
Of course the most exciting is my anniversary. 10 years this year. Whoa. I will post more about it as we get closer.
I love October. It is most definitely not summer anymore and yet it is not the cold and dreary doldrums of winter yet. It's cold enough for sweatshirts and jeans and sneakers. It is perfect for apple picking and burning fires and going to fairs. Perfect for cider and apple fritters and chili. Leaves are turning colors but haven't really started falling yet. Perfect all around!
Happy October!

If it makes you feel any better, I have a nephew who is going to be 25 this year. TWENTY FIVE. I can't even understand this.
