October CY365 Photo Challenge List

I love when October arrives.

I love how the light turns a more beautiful shade of gold.

I love the leaves as they land on the wet sidewalk.

I love the smell of apples baking in a pie.

I love the cooler days and wearing warmer clothes.

I love pumpkins in the garden that move into my house.

I love that Ian spends the month trying to decide his Halloween costume.

I love going to the pumpkin patch.

I love earlier evenings and rainy days.

I love trick-or-treating with Ian and counting his haul after.

I love decorating our house with bats and pumpkins.

I love all of the photo opportunities of Halloween.

I love a reason to sit at my desk and edit my photos.

I love the little bit of energy that October puts back into my 365 project.

I love seeing how you will interpret the October list.

    I love the color. I love the frost. I love the apples.

  2. Baking…and that it is still warm enough during the day to leave the front door open.

  3. Fall Is my favorite time of year! Everything about it makes me so happy. The chill in the air, the divine smells and the sense of new beginnings.
    I recently found your site and decided to join you all! I’ve participated in a daily photo challenge for the last year and I really enjoy it. I’m excited to join your challenge for the next year, and I’ll start tomorrow. Thanks!

  4. I love everything and anything Fall/Autumn. So October is like my favorite month (:
    I also love the incoming chilly air too.. warm apple pies, pumpkin pies, hot cocoa, apple cider… lovely fall foliage.
