You Know Autumn Has Arrived When...

  • You've begun digging out your sweaters.
  • The thought of caramel apples and visits to the pumpkin farm have left you positively giddy.
  • You're fall decor is out and up and suddenly the passage of summer isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • Your children are excited as they anticipate dressing up for Halloween.
  • You are craving soups, stews, and chili.
  • The bees are buzzing.
  • You thank God that you live in such a beautiful part of the world where the seasons change, and with it, you are in awe of the Artist who paints it all.
  • The top of your to do list begins with "buy mums today."
  • There's a slight chill in the air and you wonder how long it will be before you turn your heat on (and watch your gas bills escalate!).
  • You can't wait to make Autumn sugar cookies and have even gone out to buy new sprinkles and cutters even though you have plenty!
  • You've begun planning music for the Christmas services.
  • The football season has started and you throw a party everytime a Huskers game is televised!

Now it's your turn: What do you LOVE about the fall?

I am just thankful when we have any sort of fall like weather. I am hoping we have cooler temps this year. We do not always have fall or winter temps. I am really hoping this year will bring a true fall and winter our way!

The 'crisp'ness of the air!

Playing in the leaves (which are all brown and yucky b/c it was 100 degrees until last week with no rain...)

I too love the fall, and today was the first day I actually wore pants instead of shorts. However by mid afternoon, the temp was back up to 80 degrees. We'll hold on to some warmth a bit longer down here, I think.
However there is a crispness in the air that I love and I love being able to sleep with the windows open this time of year.
Have a beautiful day,

Ok, girl, you are causing me to think hard because I usually dislike fall because it only means winter is on the way. UGH!

However I will still pick my brain....I passed County Line Orchard the other day and the smell of cider was a good thing. Maybe my heart is changing?

Now I will go light my Fall Festival Yankee Candle and enjoy the day, which will be a high of 62! (I don't like that.)

Fall is my favorite season of all time- I just wish it lasted longer.

-I love that you can open up your windows and allow the weather to naturally cool off the house
- I love breathing in the cool crisp Fall air the minute you step outside of your house
- I love the change of colors in the leaves here in the Midwest (yellow, red, orange, etc.)
-I love pumpkin farms
-I love going to apple orchards to pick apples with my family
-I love seeing my children play in the leaves
-I love that you can be outside without sweating and being eaten alive by lots of bugs

Those are some of my favorites. Bring on the Fall.

God Bless,

Everything! It's my favorite season!

-I love the smell of fresh in my house
-the cinnamon apple candle on my stove
-to pick apples and make yummy pies from them
-to go with walks in the forest with my family

The list could go on and on:)
