I love just about everything about it. It must be my favorite season. I love the colors. I love the crisp air. I love having the windows open. I love needing a sweatshirt in the evening. I love pumpkin cheesecake. I love apple picking and making pies. I love cinnamon donuts and apple cider. It is great to have pumpkin spice candles and cinnamon brooms from Publix and that wonderful homey smell wafting through the house.
Going for a walk in the woods and looking for pine cones. Making plans for the holidays. Pouring over recipes for a crock-pot meal or thinking ahead for Thanksgiving dinner. Carmel apples for an afternoon snack. Hot cocoa and a book on the porch in the late afternoon sun. Seeing pumpkin stands and farms with scarecrows and bales of hay. Mums in the garden. I can't get enough of the trees as they change from green to golden yellows and bright reds. Even raking them and letting the kids jump in them...
Love it all. Oh, how I had wished that we would be up in our new town for fall...but God has other plans. I am so truly thankful for all that this fall brings us...just where we are.
