It's the last day of the month and I'm sad to see October leaving but excited to start a new month. November is my favorite month of the year. It's when the weather finally turns cold here in the mid-east, it's my birthday month, and there is always Thanksgiving and lots of time with family and friends. It's also the beginning of the 30 Days of Gratitude and the start of National Novel Writing Month. It's going to be a busy one!
