Hello blog world. It's October now...7 days in. This is the month where I'm always undecided in whether I like it or not. I love October for many reasons. One of them being it's my husband's birth month. Another being that it's SO gorgeous here in Saint Paul with the leaves changing, contrasted by a brilliant blue sky and the usual dark green grass. After our dry Summer months, it's a nice change to see healthy grass again. But October is also when it starts to get cold here. The days are shorter and the temps are cooler. Sometimes there's even snow. Gasp. Thankfully we only had rain this past week, non of that icky white stuff that our neighboring states saw. Last week was a pretty depressing week weather-wise. It was much chillier, the sun played hooky and the skies drizzled and poured rain down upon us. Again, I'm grateful that it wasn't snow. But still. It made me realize that Summer is truly over with and Winter is just around the corner. BUT! There is hope for this upcoming week. Looks like we're back to sunshine and 70's. Maybe last week was just a silly little prank?

Miles finally wore a hat this morning. He NEVER wears hats. I found him so stinkin' cute with his daddy's hat on his little head, that I just had to snap a few pictures.
this one) - word of advice though: if your cake calls for homemade caramel inbetween the layers of your cake, do not refrigerate your cake or your caramel will harden and be near impossible to cut through - yeah. At least it was tasty and easier to cut after thawing. ;)

|I made a 6" cake due to the fact that we just didn't need to eat a huge 9" layered cake. This was plenty for our little family.|
Two things I am looking forward to this month are going to an apple orchard (or two) and visiting Duluth. Two things we try to do late September/October. We have yet to do either thanks to the rain and a busy schedule. But we WILL. We must!!
