pumpkins galore


October is my favorite month. It just feels good to me. The weather is cooler; football season is in full swing; all of the Montgomery festivals are around the corner; hayrides and haunted houses and costume parties are in full swing; and it's the month of high school Homecomings. I also get to celebrate my first anniversary this month! Shopping is dangerous for me during this time of year. I have a weakness for anything that I can use to decorate my house festively, and I start my holiday baking early. I also pick up every magazine known to man, well (wo)man, that has a fall theme to it. It's quite ridiculous, but it keeps me in good spirits and gives me things to look forward to. My weakness of the week has been William-Sonoma. They start serving their mulling spice hot beverages about now, and they always have some other sample of a tasty treat. Yesterday, I splurged and bought the cookie cutters, and today I went back for the pumpkin bundt cans. Here is my first attempt at a pumpkinesque cake. Come on over and have a peace! Happy Fall festivites!

HaHa! I wrote peace instead of piece. Reflection of my brain these days...
