Ode to Fall


It's not quite fall yet, but it's coming.

It's my favorite time of year.

I can smell it in the air.

Here are a few of my favorite fallish things.


the smell of chimney smoke


open windows


the fashion


colorful leaves


Starbucks hot chocolate


Halloween


football


hoodies



I hope you and yours are having a lovely 3-day weekend.

I'll be spending mine with family and food.

Just as it should be.

I love that you put Starbucks hot chocolate. I don't drink coffee, but I have a ton of those bad boys when it gets cold!

I have never looked forward to fall, because it meant the end of all of our summer fun. This year is different, and I'm looking forward to some cooler weather. I must be getting old.

I love fall too, and I don't even live somewhere there is a huge change of seasons. I'll put some Pumpkins out and decorate to make it feel like fall. And have some Starbucks hot chocolate of course!

Hello! Lovely set of pics - I love that last one; I am dying for comfort clothes in front the fire! I try to remind myself we are lucky to have the passing of the seasons in our climate but deep down I am a summer girl at heart. Sigh - ahh well there is always next year... Lou x

Fall is my time of year... period... I love the colors, the scents, the clothes, the crispness of the air, and leaves burning... and the harvest is in so I can enjoy nom-noming on my goodies! Have a great Labor Day...

Umm, hello football player, lets take a stroll in a park, with the fallen leaves, Starbucks in hand, me looking super cute in my fabulous fall outfit, and lets talk about what we're going to be for Halloween, as we walk home, to a warm fire and open some windows! Perfect!
