2 Dozen Reasons To Be Happy Now!

My Favorite Season!

  1. The color: PUMPKIN
  2. Excited grandchildren that love picking out their own pumpkins.
  3. Carmelized Apple Cider From Starbuck's.
  4. Local Fall-Fest activities
  5. Dried, salted pumpkin seeds
  6. Nesting
  7. Bringing out the cozy blankets and throws
  8. Watching movies near the fireplace with Jim
  9. The anticipation of the entire Holiday Season
  10. Crockpot cooking
  11. Candles and candy corn
  12. The crackle of leaves beneath my feet
  13. The smell of fireplaces burning in cozy homes
  14. Goards and other seasonal decorative items
  15. Carving Jack-O-Lanterns with the kids
  16. Not having to dream up costumes anymore!
  17. Pumpkin bread
  18. Corn stalks and hay bales
  19. Scarecrows
  20. Red, gold and yellow leaves on and off the trees
21.  I also love all the fun photos of the kids playing and having fun this time of the year. Isn't it sad that we don't do this kind of stuff when we grow up? Maybe we all should in a few weeks when the leaves are deep on the ground and it is cool and crispy out. Thanks for the idea, Zachary!

22.  This Beautiful Autumn Wreath that my good friend, Sydne, made for me. I love this wreath! I love all the feelings of the approaching holidays it stirs up within. It is my favorite time of the year.

23.  Pinterest for the most beautiful array of fall photos you have ever seen. Take a peek 

24.  The crisp cool air, the need for a sweater, hoodie, or jacket.  It is invigorating.

Amen Bonnie,
I am right there with you, we just love this time of year for almost all the reason you said....
Love the pretty wreath your friend made you, and I have said the same
thing about the leaves, it would probably do our adult hearts good to have a nice spill into the leaves.
Course, we gotta get some first!!lol
but we do get them eventually.

Hope you and yours are all doing well hon........
Happy Fall to yall........
Overflowing Blessings to you,

I love the picture of the child in the leaves! I'm afraid if I got down in the leaves, I couldn't get up, ha!

Nellie's fall decorating is beautiful too!
Love to you all, Susan
