What is October?

To a great many North Americans, October marks the beginning or middle of Fall - depending on where you live.  It's a time for the majority of the leaves to turn, the weather to make a sharp turn from balmy to the cold that shocks you because your body temperature is still set to summer and you're not ready for the prospect of putting away your shorts and t-shirts.  It means Halloween and trick or treating.

For Mike and I, it means 3 different things.

In order of occurrence:

Our wedding anniversary.


This year, I got Mike a set of wooden plaques that I found on Etsy.  I couldn't resist and they match with the purple/gray walls in our living room.

He got me custom M & Ms with little sayings on them :)

Gimli's arrival.


Gimli came to join us in 2008 and our life has been full of corgi hair ever since.

We moved into this house.

After a particularly trying 3 months, we moved into the peace and tranquility of our house - on Halloween night no less.  We had no candy to distribute and we were tired from moving, but happier than ever to be on our own again.
