“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
I know that I am not alone when I express how dazzled I am by the beauty of October. The miracle of autumn takes your breath away, doesn’t it? Who isn’t enchanted by the spectacular changing leaves bursting with color, carving plump pumpkins and enjoying the apple cinnamon scent of hot cider. The college football schedule keeps us very busy this time of year and we plan family suppers like delicious chili and belly warming soups. Sunday pasta dinners with homemade marinara sauce are a tradition for us as well.
