Six Reasons Why I Love October


Not to sound basic, but I have loved fall and pumpkin-flavored/scented items before it was cool… basically since I was 4. My birthday is in mid-October and I have always had an appreciation for all things fall.

October is happy, cozy, beautiful, and fun.


There is not much more that I could ask for in my birthday month.

  1. I love everything pumpkin-flavored or scented. Several of my birthdays when I was a kid, I asked for a pumpkin pie instead of a birthday cake. The nice thing about the fall now is there are numerous amounts of pumpkin-flavored candles, hand soaps, tortilla chips, you name it. A lot of my family now buys me pumpkin-related decor and food for my birthday and I love it.
  2. Halloween is in October. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It is all about having fun, dressing up, enjoying the company of others, and candy. It is a very laid back holiday. I have been known to have Halloween and costume-themed birthday parties before.
  3. The weather is comfortable and perfect for hoodies, sweaters, and scarves… some of my favorite things to wear.
  4. Bonfires. There is nothing that I like better than sitting around a fire with a blanket and the people that I love, enjoying great conversation.
  5. It is absolutely beautiful outside in October. The trees are still plentiful with leaves of yellow, orange, and red. In October, the outdoors are breathtaking.
  6. October is a great time to do outdoor shopping such as the outlets and fall festivals. In Cincinnati, it is usually warm enough in October that you don’t need to wear a ton of layers outside.
