~*~*~*~*~*I LOVE the Fall~*~*~*~*~*

Happy first day of Fall~ my first favorite season (o: I have 3 more favorite seasons too, you just can't love only one, they all are special in their own way, but Fall truly is beautiful.
Here is my list of things I love about.........
~~~~~~~~~~~AUTUMN~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Of course, the Amazing colors~ what a sight to behold! I use a lot of autumn colors in my house, they are by far my favorite colors. I oohh and aaahhh over the magnificent colors while driving through the country side and tell hubby that I see a color I want on my walls, lol, (kinda like when I get a perfect chicken egg from our girls in a neat-o brown or tan, lol) I day dream of the perfect family photo under a glowing Oak tree sorrounded by big piles of leaves (that Ben, Sarah, and Josiah are NOT jumping through while running from the camera) Someday I want to go to Maine or somewhere in that vicinity where I've heard Autumn is breathtaking.

* pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin coffee creamer, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin candles, roasted pumpkin hot out of the oven with butter and salt, pumpkin shaped candy, pumpkins on my porch, pumpkin patches, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, if they made pumpkin gum I'd probably try that........ ;o)

* Sweaters, sweaters on my sister's chihuahua, scarves, tights, long skirts, knee high socks, boots, my denim jacket, big wool socks with my birkenstocks, layers, .......

* APPLES! CORN! SQUASH! did I mention PUMPKINS yet?! SUNFLOWERS still in bloom! Seeing the fruits of our labor coming from the garden~ I love harvesting and watching my family be nourished through it. I love that working in the ground brings us food to our table, so much more satisfying then bringing it home from the grocery store where it's shipped in from who knows where....

* My 3 young turkeys who are, to the children's delight~ not going to be fat enough for Turkey Day and we will, well~ just have to have another vegetarian Thanksgiving! (o:

*Harvest Parties! Aren't they the best? have you ever been to a barn party or a real apple cider pressing party?! There is usually a big bonfire to go along with it, a gathering of old and new friends, hay rides, scare crows, roasted corn on the cob, fiddles and banjos, old fashioned fun and enough flannel to get your fill till the next Fall (o: Yee~Haw (Anyone hosting one this year???)

* Cuddling up next to your sweetie (or a good book, lol) under a blanket with some hot cider in front of a crackling fire.


I KNOW there is much more to love about Fall~ what do you love about this glorious season?????

I love it!! You mentioned so many wonderful things! I am ready for the fall season too! It takes a bit longer for us down here in the south, but I do love the change of seasons, the change of wardrobe, and all the yummy foods that go with it!

yummmmmm pumpkin spice lattes from starbucks. :) My favorite. I wait all year for it!!! I love pumpkin everything. I think it is safe to say I love it more than peanut butter! Are you shocked? lol. Yummm. :)

Bonnie said...

yes, I am shocked!!! I for one though, am still loyal to peanut butter~ although pumpkin is a close runner up, PB is more faithful as it is there for us year round, LOL (o:

Fall is by far my favorite season of them all. It is filled with the best stuff all around. From tasting to smelling... One of my favorite parts of the fall is days like today where I have so much more fun and options in my wardrobe because its cold enough where I can wear a sweater with a big fun scarf skinny jeans under boots, and then i went on a good walk outside and just breathed in all the crisp air that is soo clear and just took in all the different colors and purposefully crunched leaves as I walked, and then going inside and ordering a hot tea, taking off the boots and sitting with friends and laughing while we shared different family traditions during the Holidays, and then playing our new favorite game that we have discoverd, pictionary telephone..HILARIOUS... all of this was the perfect day, and further my belief that Fall is the greatest time of the year.

aaaannndddd pumpkin pie also adds to the wonderfulness of the fall... I will be missing out on ths lovely part of the fall because of being in hungary, but around this time if i am at home, i love pumpkin flavored everything, pumpkin soup in a bread bowl....ahh man... wait i think they have pumkin soup here... but i think thats it... anyways. yes I love pumkins...
