Happy Birthday! We celebrate a couple of birthdays this month in our house too :) I think my favorite month depends upon where I am living- here, in S VA I think Sept/Oct are my favorites, when the temperature can change from warm to cool to cold in only a few hours and the colors are so brilliant and a silence seems to fall around us.

Happy Birthday! Although my birthday is in July (and I like summer), my favorite month is October. I grew up in Southern California where seasons just sort of run into each other, but I now live in Upstate New York, and LOVE when the leaves change and the air turns cooler and crisper! October has all of that, plus Apple Festival and Halloween, too! (Now if I could just learn to get enthused about snow...)

Happy Birthday Geninne! If I have to pick just one I would pick May. The warmer weather is such a treat after the cold winter. And the evenings are perfect for staying outside as long as possible with no mosquitoes.

Although my birthday is also in september (five days to come ^^) it is not my favorite month. It is may (sometimes the beginning, sometime just in the end). There is a certain moment when the air smells different in the evening. It is this moment when you know sommer is there and everything inside starts to fell so light :)

I think October is my favorite month of the year! Autumn is showing and I can start wearing my wooly hat and coat :) I love wearing snug things! The conkers are also ripe, the leaves change and I can start thinking about my Halloween costume...

I don't think I have a favorite month. When a season is almost over, and I am tired of it, I look forward to the change that is coming. Guess technically I could say the first month of each season is a favorite, full of new things to enjoy all over again. New beginnings.

So, Happy Birthday and thanks for a chance to enjoy some of your artwork in person.

Happy Birthday!
I am fortunate enough to live in a place with marked seasons, which I love. That said I love my month of July, but I also love October, the autumn replete with color and smell, air that just kisses the skin so you feel a bit cooler, and a time for warm spices, hot drinks and foliage walks in soft sweaters.

Happy Birthday! It still amazes me that bloggers will do a giveaway for their own birthday. I just arranged for a birthday massage for myself. Mine is in October, so while I cannot say that Sept is my favorite month, I definitely prefer autumn. technically yours is still in the summer, but pretty close.
I love this little fellow!

Oh happy birthday to you--I love your birthday bird!
My favorite month is October because it is my birthday month and the birthday month of some of my favorite people in the world; also a month of breaking out the sweaters and scarves, apple cider, pumpkins, maple leaves, candy corn, and nestling in with a mug of tea and a good book. Ooh, now I can't wait for October...
Cheers to you on your birthday!

OCTOBER, hands down, forever. It's Canadian Thanksgiving, my husband's birthday, our anniversary and Hallowe'en (my Gramps' birthday) all rolled into one.

It's the most beautiful time of year in Canada and the one in which I feel most happy and alive. I live for October all year long and savour all 31 fleeting days.

It's difficult to pick a favorite month. I love them all in their own way, and I love living in the part of Canada where we do since I get to see all of the seasons in their dramatic glory!

For the sake of this contest, I guess I would have to say I love whatever month I am in, for the inspiration I get in the moment, so right now, it's September that is my favorite!

Happy birthday! My hubby and I are Sep. birthdays as well.
Since living in China, April is my favorite month. We don't have central heating where we live so the beginning of spring, riding our bikes through the cool temperatures and seeing the sun again is the best!
