October in New York

If I had to pick a favorite season, it's no mystery that I'd pick Autumn. If I had to pick a favorite month, I would pick October.

October in New York is beautiful.

This photo was taken several years ago. We aren't at our fall foliage peak yet.

Today I got an email from Anthropologie that said....

Welcome to the finest month.
A month of cooled winds,
warmed hearths
and leaves underfoot.

What can I say? Perfectly said.

Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. Hi Gina! ::sigh:: New York is my favorite place. Even if I was able to go to every single place on this earth, NY would forever be my favorite. It just has something special...and fall? Well, put those two together and I'm a happy girl! Wish I could see NY in the midst of fall with my own two eyeballs! Only been there in late, late fall (like no leaves left)/winter. Oh well, maybe next year...

  2. I was just telling my hubby today that upstate NY in Fall is one of the prettiest places on Earth. My son just went on a business trip to Saratoga and he wondered why I ever left the area. Gorgeous photo- xo Diana

  3. Ditto! That is a gorgeous photo Gina. You are right Fall in NY is spectacular.

  4. beautiful! I want to come to NY for sure!! and autumn is, I think, my favorite season too.

  5. I grew up in the Mid-Hudson Valley. :) And my favorite holiday of the year: The month of October. Always has been; always will be.

  6. What a sweet post, Gina. Nice photo and quote!

  7. Very pretty! Fall is my favorite season, as well!

  8. I copied the message. I love October. It happens to be my birthday month but there are so many wonderful things that happen during this time.

  9. Are you kidding me!!!! This is what you get to experience every year! Wow... that is absolutely breathtaking! So beautiful, the colors. Oh my! Jealous! hehe
    Don't be surprised if you find an unexpected visitor at your front door! hehe

  10. What a beautiful picture. I love Fall.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  11. Gorgeous!!!!! I love the change of foilage.
    Have a fantastic night.

  12. Hi Gina!! So happy that you stopped by today. I love your Fall picture. Fall is certainly a favorite time of year for me, too. Doesn't hurt that my daughter and one grandson were born in the fall either!

    I'm soooo happy to be back to blogging and visiting again!

  13. I can't wait to see pictures from this year! I love fall!

  14. I wish we got seasons here in So Cal but it's either summer like or raining. Otherwise, I'm sure fall would be my favorite too:)

  15. Yes. I lived in upstate N.Y. several years ago and was totally spoiled forever by the perfect fall. I so miss it.

  16. I would have to agree Miss Gina! October in NY is pretty perfect:) Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! You are the best. Hope school is going well:) (((HUGS)))

  17. Hi Gina, the fall colors are quite a sight to see in that photo. I have only been to NY once and it was in the summer. Maybe I will get there sometime during the fall season. I live in the south so we are just beginning to see signs of trees changing color. We have maples that turn yellow and when the sun shines through them it is a beautiful sight. I'm looking forward to that. Hope you enjoy your week.--------Shannon

  18. You are so right! October in New York is the best.
