Thanks Be For Fall

October is over and November is here! A whole month closer to my favorite holiday! Christmas! But turkey day brings its own blessings (green bean casserole) and curses (five pounds further away from my good weight). Now lets reminisce of all the favorite parts of the closing to each year.

1) Rain. Its cliche for a born and bred Seattlite to say but I really do love the pitter patter of rain drops on our deck as I sit snuggled up to watch a movie. Running outside in the rain however is whole different matter and I don't personally like feeling damp. Just looking at the damp things outside while I am dry inside.

2) Warm beverages of all different types! Cold weather means hot drinks and hot drinks for me know no end. Whether it's a Coconut Mocha, Almond Hot Chocolate, Creme Brulee or Pumpkin Spice latte or my new favorite Salted Caramel Mocha. Nothing tastes better!

3) Old movies. Hubby thinks I am weird but I love classic films from the 30's, 40's and 50's. I was watching The  Mummy circa 1932 last night and fell in love with the old time glamour of the era that was reflected in the acting and the costumes. The starlets eyebrows however, were an eyesore.

4) Close quarters with the man I love. I like snuggling. correction: LOVE. When the weather is cold I get the excuse of touching skin to skin with J and my cuddly little girls. Nothing I love more.

I love the end of the year because it brings me that much closer to the next year and with that a lot of new surprises!
