hello october

Hello weekend and HELLO October… my favorite month! Why? Well for starters, it’s my birthday month! It’s also a month of transitions… cooler weather, warmer clothes, and a full-on cozier vibe going on in every aspect of home life. Major hygge mode!

What do you have planned for this month? You know this October’s gonna whiz by, and before we know it, Halloween will be staring us in the face.

It's so fun to take a brisk walk in the fresh Autumn air and look at how mother nature is changing our environment. Even in southern California, some of the Fall leaves have been starting to liven up the trees, especially the liquidambars. Walking through the neighborhood each day, I'm beginning to see more and more pumpkins on pretty porches. And don’t get me started on those adorable chunky sweaters I’ve been seeing!

One of my favorite things about entering in to this month, (because I love to eat) is a roasting a chicken in the oven, and the mouth-watering aroma that fills the house. It naturally says “Welcome home. Mom just made dinner” …with love!” No words needed, just that wonderful, familiar smell that my family loves.

I usually don’t turn on my oven during the summer months, but now that the weather has cooled, I find every excuse to bake something yummy or roast an organic chicken, with potatoes!  

And, that’s what’s on the menu for tonight!

ciao! fabiana
