This life is only a test

I love you, October for two very delicious reasons. And no, surprisingly I'm not referring to the two cases of canned pumpkin puree in my pantry just waiting to be slopped into muffins, cookies, bread, and pie. This month BD will turn yet another handsome year older and together we will celebrate our wedding anniversary. These are my two most favorite days all year, days I look forward to with much excitement. Because October is my favorite month of the year, it becomes 31 days of celebrating anything and everything.
The other morning as BD kissed me goodbye at 6:18 am, pulling me out of my sleepy fog, he yelled softly "It's Wednesday! I can finally see you tonight." He was right. It was already Wednesday, as in mid-week, and I could count on one hand the number of minutes I'd spent talking to him since Sunday. Of course we are no exception, everyone is busy these days. And I'm not complaining either. I am however growing more and more comfortable with this stage in life. I'm doing my best to take life in with big deep breaths, surrender the control, and make the most of each unpredictable day. Dare I say, I'm happy. Exhale.
Now that I've said that out loud on the internet I should expect all manner of heartache and pestilence to boil up in my morning tea. But until then I will love every day of October because it's cooler outside and I can wear boots, it's Conference time and church in pajamas is something I fully support, there will be birthday cake accompanied by my bad singing, my bestie is coming to town and I have about 401 things to catch her up on, soon a new baby will be born which we are anxious to welcome and shower with gifts, I'm attempting my first entrance into the annual ward chili cook-off, not to mention celebrating 6 years of marital bliss, or the lack thereof depending on the day, hosting a brood of witches for Bunko, of course Halloween rounds out the month with some good old-fashioned fright, and did I mention that it's cooler outside and I can wear scarves?
I love you, October.
