“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
– L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

and here it is...seemingly all of the sudden...October!  Can you believe how quickly we moved through summer? and now here we are face to face with October!!  October, such a wonderful month! Certainly one of my favorites...(I know, I say that every month)... Crisp days, rustling leaves, hearty soups and stews; apple cider on the stove with smells of toasty cinnamon, spicy cloves, and ginger; fresh baked goodies right out of the oven...oh YES! I do LOVE October!!   


Autumn definitely brings with it many of my favorite things, though I don’t think I’d want it to go on forever. There’s something nostalgic about the scents of autumn, the foliage with rich changing colors, the foods and holidays, traditions like apple picking and leaf piles, and cooler weather after the warmth of summer. Changing of seasons is the perfect opportunity to reflect on the season’s past and look forward with HOPE to the blessings that will come with a new season’s beginning. The beauty and majesty of autumn in particular, is a great reminder of God’s provision in our lives and how He is always working to change us from what we once were into something even more beautiful than our imagination can see, there is evidence all around us of how good it can be to 'let go' and start fresh again. In addition, the cooler temperatures autumn brings with it shorter days and more evenings spent indoors by the warmth of a fire, which is the ideal setting for reflection and a great opportunity to engage with family and friends as the pace of life slows a bit. Autumn is a wonderful time at the shoppe! We have so many inspiring things available for you and the creativity is in abundance, like the apples and pumpkins of the season!  Be sure to find your favorites for the month and plan to join in...
