Happy October!!!

October 1st...is the start of a WONDERFUL time of year, 
probably my favorite time of year. 

Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas all smashed into one season!
This time of year is packed with putting holiday decor up, taking it down & putting new holiday decor up, baking delicious treats, dressing up in costumes, our anniversary, Santa Claus, giving gifts, remembering the true meaning of Christmas & enjoying time with family...
and it all starts with October 1st, my BIRTHDAY!!!

My husband got my hints & got me a jigsaw for my birthday, I can't WAIT to use it & we already have several projects in mind...

You all know I am a SUCKER for homemade gifts, so when I opened this CELEBRATE banner that my Mother-in-Law made me, I was in heaven!
It is ADORABLE, I can't wait to hang it up for birthdays and other fun events & I appreciate the time & talent that went into it, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
And of course, I started to decorate for Halloween with some spooky webs...
And my favorite place to change decor is my entry table,
that used to look like THIS 
& normally looks like this...
but for this month, looks like this...
HAPPY OCTOBER!!!

Now...I'm off to do a little more celebrating with my family tonight...
my favorite dessert, pumpkin custard cake with homemade vanilla icecream is on the menu & I can't wait!
...I might just skip straight to dessert;)

I am not usually a fan of fall, but because summer was soooo hot, I'm definitely into fall this year!
