Ahhhhh, November.

There are so many good things about November. I love cleaning up the Halloween stuff, sifting through the candy and getting rid of the JUNK. I love the fall decorations and the baking and the cooler weather. November gives me a chance to settle down after too many Halloween festivities.
I love Thanksgiving and being with family and friends. Cooking, baking, desserts, warm drinks and savory dishes are just a few of my favorite things this month (gee, can you tell I love good food?) I love to share game nights and outings with my family and Ryan's family too.
I also love preparing for Christmas during November. The sales, the rush, crowds and the deals are always fun (well, not ALWAYS) and knowing that I'm done with the shopping makes me feel great.
I guess having a November Birthday makes this month special to me as well!
I'm just so happy that October is over! What a mess it was!

I love November too! I love baking so much, but it's going to hard to resist this year. Baked goods aren't so good for training!

Happy Birthday this month!

It's been good to see you a couple of times in the past week or so...I almost forgot what you looked like!
