Good as Gold
THE BLUE HOUR, that time of day right before sunrise and after sunset, certainly has its merits when it comes to beauty. But I love the magic of the golden hour, those moments just after sunrise and before sunset when the world turns soft, sun-dappled, and particularly st unning. It’s the perfect light for capturing breathtaking outdoor photos—seemingly everything (and everyone) is illuminated. Happy hour, indeed.
For me, October is the golden month of our year, and it’s one of my favorites. It borrows its brilliantly balanced weather from the warmer months that precede it, and the cooler ones that follow. The light during this time is also awe-inspiring. Thanks to the sun’s new angle, it cues up crisp mornings and st retches out over beautiful autumnal afternoons. Add fall’s fiery leaves and the bumper crop of gourds and pumpkins to the mix, and we have quite a sublime season to soak up.
Speaking of golden, this issue is brimming with ways to get in the spirit—from fun Halloween ideas for all ages to crowd-pleasing ones for mealtimes to smart suggest ions for decorating your home in st yle. Happy October—let’s glow with it!
