What I Love about Fall, Ya'll

My in-laws have been here for a visit from Arkansas this past week. My friends said I started talking southern while they were here. Maybe so. After 10 years living in the Midwest, I am afraid I've lost my "ya'll". I haven't forgotten how to call the hogs though--too bad it wasn't enough to pull out a win on Saturday.

This is my 100th post!
year ago I thought I'd try this new fangled thing called "blogging". It's been a creative outlet for me as well as proof positive that you can, indeed, teach an old dog a new trick. So for my 100th blog post, I wanted to share with you my favorite things of my favorite season of the year...Fall.
  • Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks
  • Apple crisp, apples and caramel dip, apple cider, cream cheese stuffed apples, Fuji apple chicken salad at Panera Bread Company (it's actually offered year 'round--I was just on a roll with the apple thing)
  • Mums- all colors. Decorated front porches. I'd like mine to look like this from the Pottery Barn catalog:
  • Trees changing colors and falling leaves
  • Fire pits and fireplaces
  • Football games
  • Yankee candle in Spiced Pumpkin (my standard fall fragrance; the new fall scents were great too)
  • Candy corn and dry roasted peanuts
  • Warm days and crisp nights
  • Molasses cookies with Pumpkin dip
  • Fall fabrics and colors
  • Soup and chili recipes
  • Start up of Women's Bible studies-- I'm doing these two:

We all have a time of year that we enjoy the most but I hope you can find wonder and beauty and joy in whatever season you are in.

So what do you love about this time of year?

I saw the cutest sign in a store this weekend "Fall is the best of all." I intend to return and buy it!
I always get the pumpkin spice Yankee Candle this time of year and burn it continually until the Christmas season is on us. Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. Fires in the fireplace (indoor and out).
And as we say in Texas, "Happy Fall, Y'all!"

I love the cold weather that kills all of the spiders and mosquitoes. And crunching leaves while I walk.
