We Can Swim Any Day in November

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

This month is my favorite one. November is quiet and cold. It encourages cuddles on a soft couch and whipped cream on top of warm beverages. It's slower than other months. It is frozen, cloudy mornings and early nights and a thin sheet of frost on windshields. It's grey in the very best way.

It is the calm before the storm of frenzied shopping and holiday planning. It's a long weekend of family, favorite dishes and naps in the middle of the day. It's a story by a fireplace. There's apple pie and there are martinis; plenty of both.

What does November mean to you?


  1. This season totally takes my spirit and shatters it, but I still get a twinge of warm optimism from reading your blog & looking at your photos of frothy coffee and colorful scarves.

  2. I couldn't agree with Claire more. I hate November (not as much as March- yuck) but it DOES mean Thanksgiving- my favorite holiday of the year. Ooh and its one month closer to Christmas!

  3. november means my birthday! (this year, my 21st). and it means time with the family. snuggling in with the ones i love :) also wrapping up the semester and starting to listen to christmas music :)

  4. "grey in the best way" you couldn't have said that better. November means... food and family.

  5. This is my favorite one, because I get to celebrate my bday! In Brazil, it's spring now, so I loved how the pretty colors and how we would start going to the beach more often. Here, it's fall, so I enjoy the nice weather... I love November.

  6. Lovely post. November means snuggles on the couch with my loved one and warm apple cider by the fireplace :)
