Autumn's Beauty

Autumn or 'Fall' as we say in the Midwest is arriving and it's by far my favorite time of the year. The above picture of Grace was taken by me almost a year ago, it's been all over my blog and I love it so much I had to post it again. Let's see...what do I love so much about Autumn? Leaves on the trees changing colors to gold, garnet and brilliant orange, going pumpkin picking and finding just "the right one," college football games, wearing sweaters again, going trick or treating with my children, and getting together with Grace's China travel group for an annual party in November. I'm also a little sad about Autumn's arrival. Summer is gone and Winter will be coming very soon. Enjoy this season of change.

Fall always has been and will always be my FAVORITE season. I love college football and the crisp cool air, the beautiful leaves, cocoa...Ahhh!

This time of year is bittersweet for me too. But I am looking forward to fall and the fall holidays. It is definitely cooling down here and the leaves are changing colors.

As someone that lives in South Florida, I have to say that the fall sounds quite wonderful. I experinced as a small child in Connecticut but that was a loooong time ago.

What an awesome photo of Grace in the leaves. No, wonder it has made more than one appearance on your blog. Maybe you can stage one with Will ;0)

Oh yes, my favourite season! The only draw back is that it leads to winter. Love that Grace picture. Have the best day my sweet friend.
