Photo Diary: October

1. I loved decorating for Halloween and enjoying it throughout the month!

2. Almond Joys are my absolute FAVORITE candy bar and when I saw this I knew it was happening. This Almond Joy frosting is so delicious- if you like the candy, you'll like the frosting, I promise!

3. We went on a couple fall themed outings. This picture is from a farm that was really cute, but everything was way overpriced!

4. Speaking of overpriced, we bought the half gallon apple cider at the farm from photo 3 and it is probably the best apple cider I've ever had, even though it was $6 for this size! In general, I've been loving apple cider heated up- as you can see, we have a variety :)

5. I've had so much fun baking this month, especially the pumpkin treats!

6. I've been going through a little bit of a rough time these last few months, but this month I really started reading more inspirational quotes like this one, mainly on Pinterest. It doesn't necessarily "fix" anything, but I know that things are going to get better in time and trying to have a positive attitude (even when it's really hard) is the best thing you can do.

7. I went home last week (which explains my lack of posts) and got to spend time with my family and my pup! She was pretty lazy this particular morning :)

8. The main reason I went home was for my Aunt's wedding. This was my fourth wedding this year, but it was really fun because it was close family and friends that attended and it was nice to get to catch up with everyone as it's rare we're all together.

9. My mom bought herself an indoor mum and when I saw how pretty it looked when she potted it I told her I wanted one. When I came home later that day, she had bought me 3 indoor mums to bring back with me! So we went outside on our balcony with a little space heater because it was dark and cold and planted them. They add such nice color and just make me feel cheery!

Those were the highlights of my October! October is my favorite month of the year because it starts getting colder and it's the start of the holidays and festivities!
