Things I Love About Autumn

Growing up in Texas, Autumn has always been a long-awaited joyful break from the oppressive heat and humidity of Summer. Yes, I love my time at the lake, wearing flip-flops, and a season with my kids at home ... but I always welcome Fall with much enthusiasm and fanfare ... a time for new decor, new foods, new clothing.

Here are just some of the things I love about this season:
  • Fall wardrobe!!
    • Sweaters and jeans
    • great boots
    • fun trench coats, jackets, and blazers
  • Friday night football games complete with ...
    • crowds-a-cheering
    • bands-a-playing
    • lights-a-blazing
  • The Weather!
    • lower temperatures and cool breezes
    • colored leaves that fall from the trees
  • All things pumpkin!
    • Pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks,
    • Vanilla-pumpkin candles from Candle Queen,
    • Pumpkin foods -- pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin-walnut bread!
  • Halloween!
    • Costumes and decorations
    • Carving (or painting!) pumpkins
    • Parties and crafts
    • Trick-or-Treating and candy!
  • Fall Fun for Kids
    • hayrides and cookouts
    • camping and fishing
    • trips to the pumpkin patch and the hay maze
  • Fall foods and drinks
    • chili, soup, and stew
    • apple cider
My boys with their painted pumpkins --
a black bat with baby bat and a silver space ship with aliens
