October 2023



Imagine trading the hurry-hurry-hurry for a leisurely stroll through the season, like savoring every bite of your Thanksgiving feast instead of gobbling it down to move on to the next course and giving yourself indigestion. There’s a certain charm in living in the moment—in finding delight in the pumpkin spice latte that’s still warm in your hand. The holiday rush might be relentless, but let’s not allow it to sweep us away from the simple pleasures: the crunch of leaves underfoot, the joy of watching a classic horror movie on Halloween night, the warmth of a family gathering where the focus is on togetherness rather than gift-giving. So, as the carols creep onto the airwaves and Santa’s sleigh inches its way

toward store shelves, let’s share a chuckle at the audacity of it all. Sure, we’ll get there eventually, but for now, let’s make the most of this October magic. After all, time flies faster than a reindeer on Christmas Eve, and we don’t want to miss the beautiful moments that each season brings… even if they do come faster than Brittney Quinn’s fall candles lighting up in August.
