october is my mistress this week.

the leaves were rolling through the streets today when we drove to target.
the wind was colder.
and i felt like i would have enjoyed my coat.
or at least a sweater.
especially in the shade.
max put her hood up and buried her face into my neck until we got into the store.
thirty seconds of heaven:)
i bought tomato soup at costco b/c my soul is screaming grilled cheese.
this is the week of the year where october becomes everyone's mistress.
lusting for its air.
colors.
and smells.
i can't stop thinking about candied apples dipped in white chocolate and rolled in chopped oreos.
jack-o-lanterns glowing,
and the smell of candles burning inside of them.
so before i give into my christmas music yearnings,
it's one more week of lusting with fall.
