Hello October!

This wonderful month has finally graced us with its presence! There are so many great things I look forward to in October. Just a few of them being: Apple Hill, the official month of Breast Cancer Awareness and Halloween! And let's be real, Halloween is a great excuse to bake fun, festive treats for everyone!

I'm looking forward to posting some inspiration I've had for upcoming festivities! However, I'm keeping that for Friday, so for now here's some fun trivia of historically important dates in October ~

*Christopher Columbus landed in America, October 12, 1492 (which I get off work!)
*First "Model T" Ford put on the market, October 1, 1908
*White House cornerstone laid, October 13, 1792
*Thomas Edison began first successful demonstration of his electric light, October 19, 1879
*First transcontinental telegram sent, October 24, 1861
*Harvard College founded, October 28, 1636
*Statue of Liberty dedicated, October 28, 1886
*Blackest day in stock market history, October 29, 1929
*According to tradition, the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of a church at Wittenberg, October 31, 1517

Don't you feel just a little smarter knowing these things?!

A preview of what's coming tomorrow:)

Go grab yourself a pumpkin latte and enjoy the day!
