Whoa, it’s October. Where the heck did September go? I feel like I was just spazzing out that September 1st was here and summer was over, and now it’s OCTOBER. Jeez. Although, I have to admit, I’m not at all upset by this.
October is one of my favorite months ever””mostly because it’s smack in the middle of fall, and I love all things related to the season, but also because it’s filled with weddings and birthdays for me, which are events I really enjoy celebrating.
Yesterday, when I was organizing my calendar for the month, I noticed that a lot of the important people in my life celebrate their birthday in October (my mom, my cousin, my brother-in-law, my college roommate, and a number of my friends). June is also a popular month. Mal always jokes that he gets slammed in June because he celebrates my birthday, Murphy’s birthday, his dad’s birthday, and his sister’s birthday all in a couple of weeks.
Does this cluster of birthdays happen to anyone else?
Yesterday’s breakfast was a two-ingredient pancake, but made with two eggs instead of one. I also added some pumpkin pie spice to the mix, which I’m lovin’ lately. I’m throwing it in everything.
I topped my, um, pancake (it really doesn’t look like a pancake now, does it?) with a scoop of almond butter and drank a glass of Dandy Blend with coconut milk.
