"Delicious Autumn..."

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." ~George Eliot~

It's my favorite time of year! I love this season and all the warm and cozy things that go with it. I thought I would share a few of the things I delight in each year once the leaves begin to fall...

(in no particular order)


And more...much more, but that is all I can think of right now. What about you? What will you delight in during this blessed fall season?

Fall is my favorite time of year as well as evidenced by my decorating theme most of the year! My hubby would say his favorite thing is Candy Corn, while I love hot mulled cider, biking over the crunchy leaves at Dogwood Canyon, and bringing out my fall sweaters in oranges, browns, and greens!

I love every single thing on your list, except I'm not sure what Pumpkin Pie Crunch is...I'm going to check that out now! I also love my little indulgence of a steaming cup of cocoa or chai tea...I love taking it outside in the evening when the air is crisp and cool.

Sweaters, apple cider, chili in the crockpot, Broncos games (on tv), cuddling under blankets, and going to the pumpkin farm!

Mellowcreme pumpkins, candy corn, craft festivals (even though I dont buy anything), corn mazes, hay rides, vegetable soup, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, the smell of smoke in the air, football, sweaters, my handy dandy Hanes Her way zip up Hoodies in all colors, .........I could go on and on.......

Lynn said...

Yep, my favorite too. I love the colors, and I don't know how else to describe it...fall just makes me feel safe. Maybe it is getting back to routine after the craziness of summer. I love all fall activities...ask my husband. ;o) I go nuts decorating. I'll try to post some pictures soon.

My favorite season too! Not too cold... not too hot... I love the scent of woodstove smoke in the air early in the morning. Living in New England, the colors are brilliant in the Fall. I discovered pumpkin crisp last year... Mmmmmmmmmm. I'm thinking I'm gonna have to bake some tomorrow now. :) Thanks for sharing your list!

My absolute favorite fall memory to delight in is definitely the pumpkin patch.

Afterall that is where JP and I made our very first special friends. Can you believe it has been 6 years?!

Love you friend!

Apparently, I'm going for the shallowest comment award...

I love FALL FASHION! mmm leather boots and turtlenecks and scarves and oh! cute hats... earthtones and cute jackets... and tights!

(and of course all the other things like fall food... but we don't really get leaf changes or anything like that here)

Fran said...

LOL! Every time I crunch leaves, or see a cute pair of leaf crunching shoes, I think about you!

I love curling up in the deck swing in the crisp, cool weather with a hot cup of coffee or chocolate and reading a book.

I love wearing those comfy old jeans, with a t-shirt and flannel shirt when I run errands or work in the yard.

I just love fall!!!

I love fall. Sweaters, a chill in the breeze, the smell of burning leaves, holidays approaching. Also, I love the fact that the bugs die or just go away due to frost.

Shelley said...

I'm with Janelle, halloween at your house is one of my faves!

I'm loving fall this year. I don't know if I've always loved it this much. But this year, with school back in, and Annie participating in soccer, and Austin wanting to be outside ALL THE TIME...it's been really fun so far. I'm looking forward to the pumpkin patch as always, and maybe a bonfire soon!

Kara said...

Oh I absolutely LOVE fall! I love going on long walks in a nature center where the beautiful leaves are laying all around you at your feet. I love making my mom's beef stew and homemade biscuits, and I adore pumpkin patches and hayrides and pumpkin pie. Oh Yes. I do love me some fall!!
