I celebrate the birth
of my most favorite month of the year
an ATC sized white ghost pumpkin card all star dusted
and happily nested in her
a hint of what is to come...very, very soon.
Only three days remain of our seasonal love affair
in the Midwest...
making today somewhat truly bittersweet...;)
The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause
between the opposing miseries of summer
