October 13- Twinkle Lights Everywhere

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” 

L.M. Montgomery, Anne Of Green Gables

When October is half way through I get excited. The twinkle light season is finally here. Lights around a room, around a tree, within pumpkins, all make me happy. A storm is brewing on the Pacific and just might bring high winds. If the electricity goes out, more twinkle lights.

  This is the month of my birth. Thank-you, Mama. Candles on cupcakes, or nestled into wreaths just are the very bestest of bests. 

My island really loves Halloween. The close to a hundred pumpkins, at the local coffee shop, start parading a few days before. Then on Halloween night they all light up. Heaven!

And, not to be forgotten, a few weeks before Halloween the solstice brought out the luminaries around Paradise Valley streets. All to please the eye and warm the heart.
                             Of course, there's Christmas coming.....

I am writing for 31 days this October about Island Life. Click here to see the other days of writing.


  1. Fantastic photos. We are going to our local pumpkin patch on Sunday. Hoping the high winds remain not so high. So far, it's good here. :)

  2. I also would love to have a uneventful weekend.

  3. I love the photos. I don't always like how it starts getting dark and cold at this time of year, but the lights are pretty.

  4. This looks so idyllic and perfect for families!

  5. I always wanted to have an October baby to celebrate birthdays in this festive season. I have one October baby. I enjoy planning her parties. Happy birthday month to you ! That coffee shop is enchanting. So many happy pumpkins!

  6. So charming! I love Halloween and it looks like your island does it up right!
