Dear November,
Do you feel overlooked...unloved?
You are often sandwiched in the minds of many between Halloween and Christmas.

To me, however, you are beautiful.
True fall colors emerge during your hours,
the air chills enough that hot chocolate is *just right*,
and warms you inside and out.
Jackets are adequate, coats not quite necessary yet.
A sweater is the perfect wear on most of your days,
and if you listen closely, the crunch and crackle of the leaf-strewn earth indicates winter's upcoming grasp.

Do not despair November...
You are a month for which I give thanks.

Love your fall-loving friend,

I love November, too! I love looking forward to Thanksgiving and my birthday as well as my mom's. I also get so excited getting ready for Christmas! Unfortunately, here in TX we're still in capris and sandals...I long for hot chocolate days!

I whole-heartedly agree. November is great. I love Thanksgiving. I love the weather, and I love college football.
