Autumn, My Favorite Season

Autumn...Fall... What do these words mean? To different people they mean different things, I suppose. In this post I will share with you all what Fall is to me. ;) 

Fall is wearing pants and a sweatshirt to bed beacause you refuse to shut the window just yet. 

Fall is grabbing a beautiful handmade quilt and curling up in your favorite chair to read a good book. 

Fall is lugging a box up from the basement and decorating the house with...


...leaf-shaped candles.

...and cute window clings. 

Fall is the print of leaves on the concrete. (After being gone for two weeks and then removing all the leaves that had piled up, this interesting design was discovered. ^_^) 

Fall is onions hanging up to dry. 

Fall is the beautiful pink chrysanthemums blooming in the yard.

Fall is the leaves trying to cover the large rock behind the house. 

Fall is eating your fill of candy corn, because it isn't around the rest of the year. (I take that back, it isn't supposed to be around the rest of the year. But last year I saw 'Christmas corn' and even 'Valentine's corn'. That's just wrong, sorry...) 

Fall is the cute welcome signs hanging...

...on the porch.

...and on the door. 

Fall is rolling pumpkins and gourds from the garden and piling them up to show themselves off to the world. 

Fall is hunting through dusty, closet nooks to find the sweaters, boots, pants, and coats you put away the past spring. 

Fall is listening to a woodpecker, chipping away at a tree in the woods above our house. (I'm listening to one right now. ^_^) 

For my family, Fall also means it's almost time to start cutting down, baling, and shipping out Christmas trees. :) I'll do a post on that sometime. 

That's all for now! Thanks for reading! What does fall mean for you and your family?
