October – the month of Halloween, the beginning of the Fall season. A time where the leaves begin to turn from green to orange, red, gold and brown before falling off the trees. Grass begins to fade and temperatures turn cooler. The smell of apple cider and cinnamon brooms are in the air and pumpkins are available everywhere.
It’s the beginning of a new quarter and the countdown towards the Holiday season. When you look around the stores, next to the Halloween decorations are the unpacking of Christmas decor. Soon the shelves will be filled with the latest toys and things kiddos will write in their letters to Santa.
It’s my favorite time of year and to celebrate, here are a few quotes to kick off the month.
