Friends, pumpkins make me irrationally happy. No, like really irrationally happy. When pumpkins hit the stores and I see them for the first time, I beeline for them with the enthusiasm of a five-year-old child. If Michael's with me he's always witness to my happy, "Look! Baby pumpkins!" (As mentioned in my monthly favorites, a lot of things are "babies" to me.) If he's not with me, then he will definitely get a text with a photo of the pumpkins and many, MANY excited emojis.
I am both a lover of traditions and holidays. With how busy October was for my business (and the hurricane), Michael and I let go of a lot of activities that we normally do during October. I don't regret the items that took their place during October, but there was a part of me that was sad to miss out on so many of my favorite October activities. As the month was coming to a close, Michael and I had a couple plans altered on us again (this time in the form of cancellations/rescheduling.) Instead of dwelling on the disappointment of these plans being changed, we refocused that energy into suddenly having time to do a couple of the things we'd otherwise be missing out on. (October seems to have been a month where I have been consistently and gently reminded that it is okay for plans to change.)
Once we realized we had this extra time, I appreciated that Michael and I almost didn't even need to talk about how we were going to fill that time. It was obvious. We were going to the pumpkin patch.
This date squeaked in the day before Halloween, so the pumpkin pickings were a little slim, but it was so nice to just go, walk around together, admire the butterflies, and squeal over the cuteness of the pumpkins. (Okay, maybe that last point was just me.)
What's something that makes you irrationally happy?
