Like Anne, I too, am so glad I love in a world where there are Octobers! October is the very best of all the senses; the richly colored, crunchy leaves, the smell of pumpkins, apples and cinnamon, the warm fuzzy sweaters on chilly days, the taste of hot cocoa.
In honor of October I am sharing a few of my favorite October-y things... this printable quote from one of my all time favorite books, and my pumpkin bread recipe. Now your house can smell like October, too! Happy Fall!

Every Fall, my mom used to make this pumpkin bread recipe for our family. Even now, the smell of it reminds me of the season, and of her. Enjoy!
