Goodbye September, Hello October.

Goodbye, September. 

Goodbye to anxious nights looking over residency applications a fifth or sixth "one final time."

Goodbye to putting off my ever-growing to-do list...this baby is coming soon!

Goodbye to spending days in the park, finalizing our list of places we want to live and drinking the best sweet tea (thanks, Birmingham!).

Goodbye to saying, "I can't wait until we turn applications in!" 

Goodbye to tanktops and shorts.

Goodbye to the beginning of fall.

Hello, October. 

Hello to one of the most magical months of the year.

Hello to full blown, all out fall, every day.

Hello to a season that makes it easy to fall in love with life.

Hello to interview offers.

Hello to exploring cities that may be our new home!

Hello to slipping a pumpkin in my grocery cart every time before check-out.

Hello to fall dates, candy parties, pumpkin parties, and more time spent outside.

Hello to weather that is hopefully cool enough to sit outside with a blanket and a cup of coffee.

Hello to the time of the year that just makes me feel alive.

What are you saying hello and goodbye to in October?


  1. Oooh fun, I like this post idea! Gonna use you as inspiration for my post tomorrow!

  2. Unfortunately being it than I'm in Texas, it won't feel like an "actual Fall" for awhile, but I am so excited for all of the autumn themed drinks, and even more excited to bust out my fall wardrobe! Goodbye flip flops, hello boots!

  4. Goodbye to shorts and hello to ALL THE COZY!!

  5. I am saying hello to fall evenings snuggling at home with my sons and watching Harry Potter with hot chocolate.

    I am not looking forward to midterms ):

  6. Interview offers are so exciting! I was so surprised that they started coming the day after applications were turned in-I honestly thought we would have to wait for a few weeks! I love that you get to go with him on his interviews-I didn't get enough days off work to do that, so I both loved & hated interview season. Haha. Enjoy this fun time-Match Day will be here soon! :)

  7. What a fun post! Hmm.. I'm saying bye to extra sunlight in the evenings, but hello to cider and donuts! Lots and lots of 'em too! And totally agree when you say hello to the time of year that makes you feel alive! :) Right there with ya girl!

  14. I love this post! I said goodbye to an amazing September, and although it feels nothing like Fall in Miami, I'm looking so looking forward to everything October brings!
