October Desktop Calendar

October, I can’t believe you are already here, but I’m so glad.


I love the season of pumpkin everything.  I love the (ever so slightly) cooler weather.  I love the colors of Fall.  I love permission to bake bread and cook lots of soup.  Most of all, I love a reason to make you all a new calendar.  Enjoy!
