Dear, October

The weather has definitely cooled down here in New York. The skies are overcast and the light is fading earlier and earlier. It's the last day of September and I left my apartment today wearing rain boots. I was kinda excited about it. I've been looking forward to you more than usual. I'm not sure why but I feel a comforted knowing you're almost here. I've missed you. I've written down lists of things I want to do while you're here. Some of them include; a picnic in the park, baking a carrot cake, and practicing the sun salutations. 

The other day I read a tweet from an artist I admire. It said, "Forever seeking an October kind of feeling." It immediately grabbed onto my heart strings. I know I'm not the only one who loves you but it was in that moment I knew I wanted to make the most of our time together. 

I created a Pintrest board of  "October-ings"   Its a growing list of things like, recipes I'd like to try, perfecting  a winged, cat eyeliner, movies I Intend to watch, places I want to go, and other autumnal vibes I want to experience while you're here. 

I'm formally saying goodbye to your bro, September. He's been tough. I don't think I'll miss him but he did help to me realize a few important lessons this month. I think I'll lay out my yoga mat and sweat it out - like a cleansing. I've also written down a few prayers, thoughts, and things I wish to let go before you get here. 

I wanted to take a sunrise walk tomorrow, to properly say hello to you but It will very much likely be raining so I don't know how that will work out. Maybe I'll wrap myself up in a blanket, have a cup of tea, and sing you a song.  

See you tomorrow, October.

with love, 

Gina
