I missed your crisp weather that gives way to my best hair days all year. I missed your pumpkins, caramel apples and cider. I missed the joy of being outside on one of your glorious days (assuming there is no physical activity involved - at least that I am participating in).
Oh, and the fact that my birthday falls within your 31 days also makes me love you.
Do YOU love October as much as I do? By October we are enjoying Fall and all the loveliness that it brings. We crave warmth and coziness. I pulled out my chocolate brown velvet throw pillows and fell in love with them all over again.
So as an ode to my favorite month, I bring you a collection of beautiful autumnal floral arrangements.
Like this one from blog decor8. Simple, but a warm little touch to a desk or side table:

Or this front door arrangement. I LOVE feathers in floral arrangements. Click here to read how Rhoda from Southern Hospitality made it:
And I couldn't bring you fab floral arrangements without calling on Martha. View the full slideshow with details here:

If the high cost of real arrangements keeps you from displaying them, go faux (and reuse it next year)!
