Oh, how I love October in Ohio. The leaves change color, the air turns crisp, and sweaters and jeans are brought to the front of the closet. But there are a few other very important reasons that October is the jam. On the 11th, since the day I was born people celebrated ME!! Woo Hoo! I have my own day. And then 27 years later on the 17th I married the greatest guy and people came out to celebrate then too. And, of course, the love of my life was born on the 19th to much fanfare by the family who loves him. It is a month of celebration around here! I already have 15 kids rsvp’d for Gage’s party and the only reason I’m not freaking out is that we’re having it somewhere else 😉
These are the things that were happening the week I was born. Wanna take a guess on how old I’ll be this month?
The French Connection with Gene Hackman was the #1 movie in theaters.
The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty was atop the New York Bestseller list.
The #1 album was Every Picture Tells a Story by Rod Stewart and the #1 song was Maggie May from the album.
Ike and Tina Turner were on the cover of Rolling Stone.
What year do you think I was born? There’s a small prize in it for the first person who guesses correctly 🙂
