“O suns and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour October’s bright blue weather.”
-Helen Hunt Jackson

October

October and the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear.
What do I care?

October and kingdoms rise
And kingdoms fall
But you go on
And on.

I love that song by U2. And I love the month of October. It’s such a shame to me that my absolute favorite time of year is so incredibly short. Fall is 3 months long like any other season, but it’s only good for a few short weeks…the first month is still too hot, the last month, it already feels like winter. Once October ends, Autumn is just about over too. I can’t believe how quickly this month has passed. It seems like just yesterday the kids went back to school, and now we’re already making plans for Christmas.

Thankfully, it’s nice enough outside today to enjoy an outdoor photo shoot in the crisp fall air.

Listen to U2’s October here.
