10 Things I Love About Fall :)


1. Apple and Cinnamon.....anything!
2. Comfy boots and knitted scarves.
3. Hot tea with honey.
4. Flannel Shirts and warm sweaters.
5. Autumn scented candles burning.
6. Pumpkin anything...especially whoopie pies.
7. Snuggling up under extra blankets and quilts.
8. Thanksgiving dinner!
9. Watching my kids jump in piles of leaves.
10. Lighting a fire in the fireplace :)

It's starting to feel like Fall here, or do you say Autumn? I like both words.
Extra blankets are coming out,
along with long-sleeved sweaters and jackets.
We were just wearing shorts and flip-flops a few days ago!
We've had some rain, and turning the oven on is a welcome feeling
of warmth, not overbearing heat :)
I'll miss summer a bit, but I love Fall and the changing of the seasons.

What do you Love about Fall?

Blessings,
Marcia

Happy Fall Marcia! I love that we can all cozy up in front of a log fire and eat our homemade candy apples and fudge! Can you tell food is one of my principal enjoyments ANY season?!!!

There isn't much of Fall that I don't like! It has always been my favorite season!

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Beautiful!!

Kevin and Pam said...

I love the cooler weather and the smell of pumpkin and spices! I also love to curl up with a blanket with my family in front of the fireplace. :) I have loved these past few days of rain. I know none of that is really very typical here in So. CA but I did enjoy it while it lasted!

Beautiful autumn.....enjoy a happy weekend...xxx...love

Theresa said...

Ahhhh, we are enjoying a crisp morning here! I love putting a jacket on and walking in the rustling leaves:)

Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Tricia @ A Rosy Note said...

Apples, specifically, Honeycrisp...have you ever tried one? Mmmm, delicious. I'm with you on the cinnamon and the pumpkin too :)

Debbie said...

Pretty much the same. Most of all I love the color and regret its absence because of the Midwest winter which comes immediately afterwards. :D

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

Marcia -- what a FABULOUS list!! I am afraid I am going to copy you -- but my list is slightly different :)

Blessings!

I too love everything fall. I hope you have a gorgeous and happy one Marcia.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

I do miss the freedom of summer and no school but I do love all the same things you do. Especially the smells and pumpkin anything. Oh and being able to use the oven.

Sweet Tea said...

"Pumpkins" and the color ORANGE.
I'm still working on embracing Fall, but doing better.

Sue said...

I love every single thing about fall except cooking Thanksgiving dinner. And this year, I am going to my son's house!

=D

michelle said...

I love everything you mentioned, especially a cozy fire with some hot drinks. It is hot there now so no fires, but next week we can return to fall. :)
XOXO

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I love all those things on your list, Marcia! Fall is my favorite time of year. I also love caramel apples which you can only find this time of year...bought some today! Happy Fall to you and yours!

SweetMarie said...

Hi Marcia, I love your list and those beautifully displayed apples. It's actually been cooler in the mornings and evenings here in Orlando. It's giving me hope for a real Fall and Winter! Happy Fall!

Amy Kinser said...

I love fall, also. I love making my pumpkin spice coffee and muffins. I love the cool mornings and evenings. I love lightweight jackets and bonfires. I love the beautiful leaves on the trees. God is such an amazing artist!

Julie Harward said...

I love all the same..and hot chocolate! We got snow this morning and 18' temps too aren't we lucky..did I mention hot chocolate?! LOL

T's Daily Treasures said...

All the things you love summed up Fall for me, too, and yet we don't get most of that around here. :/ I can light pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla caramel candles though -- and I can crochet cozy scarves and wait for those cooler days to arrive. :) Morning and night time temps are certainly better ... just waiting for those day temps to come down. Hope your weekend is great. Tammy

Vicki said...

I love the colors, the smells and the food! So glad you are feeling the Fall weather. It is rainy here but cooling off, We'll take it!

Farm Girl said...

I love the bottom picture with the pumpkins in that turquoise truck.
I do love the cooler weather so much. It makes me happy to be able to breathe cooler air.
I am glad you are having some cool weather too. Though the weather man said by next week we will be back to warmer temps. I kept my short out just in case. :)
I love your list.

Becky K. said...

I love everything about Fall. It is just the best!!

sealaura said...

love, this list. I think you hit the nail on the head, pumpkin, spice yum!
We had our first rains here in Monterey and it left us with the most glorious sunny days. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Linda said...

I love the smells of Autumn the best of all the seasons! We are back to shorts for a few days though...it's a bit warmer today!

Sue said...

Marcia, Autumn is the best part of the year! I know it means that winter is on its way, but it is so pretty! Love the smells, the crisp mornings, the sunny days, gorgeous colors. aaahh....

Melissa said...

Loved the way you express it all. Its everything that we are experiencing here too. And I love my winter wardrobe that starts getting attention this time of the year.

I believe, as did George Eliot, that autumn is wedded to my soul.

Great post, Marcia!

Beverly said...

I love the word Autumn, but I usually say Fall. I love fall too and the nights are getting that chill I love.
All the things you mentioned are some of my favorite things. Pumpkins and fall flowers at my front door and a fall wreath come out the first of October.
Love the old pick-up with pumpkins.
Reminds me of going to the pumpkin patch in Tehachapi when my boys were small. Happy Autumn!!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

I love this season also, no matter what it is called...just not the allergies that have hit me. I love the picture of the truck..the colors are just great! I want it.

Tanya said...

Hi sweet friend,
Oh I love fall too...I think I say fall more than autumn but autumn sounds so Lovely! ;0)
I wish we could just go from Fall right into Spring! How about that for demanding! I'm just dreading the COLD!!
I loved all those things you listed! Oh how we are alike! ;)
My SIL is still not blogging...I can't get her back! ;(
I'll tell her you asked! She'll love that!
Hugs,
Tanya

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Looks like we all agree here...there's just something magical about Autumn!!
Hope you're having a good day.

I love the sound of autumn best! :) I like the crispness in the air and just the cozy feeling inside my home, just to name a few! Love your pic of the pumpkins in the truck bed! So cute!

Ohhhh I'm so happy I can't tell you.
Fall is so wonderful by itself but to come after humid heat is just so sweet.
We love to host bonfires and roast things!

Great list. Pumpkin and the changing leaves top my list. Still waiting for the leaves, but enjoying pumpkin creamer in my coffee every day.

Shelley said...

Your fall list is perfect - I agree w/ everything on it! Just add some hot chocolate topped w/ marshmallows and it's complete!
