We Can Swim Any Day in November

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?
