Things I Love About Autumn
I love autumn. It is my favorite season. I love the change of seasons, the colors, the light.
I love the cool mornings and evenings
I love the seasonal fruits...apples, pears, pumpkins, winter squash, and greens.
I love the soups and stews and casseroles that seem to taste better this time of year.
I love silly little kids who seem to feel refreshed in the cooler air. They spend nearly every afternoon playing together outside, laughing and having such a good time with each other, running around and around the house, playing hide and go seek, playing kick ball, and anything else they can think of until the darkness makes them come inside.
I love it when I can pull on a sweater and cozy up with my afternoon cup. I really can't wait until it's cold enough to light a fire in the fireplace. That always makes everything seem so comfortable and homey. This is definitely a nesting season for me. Everything seems to turn inward....home, family, and cozy-togetherness.
Yes. It's definitely my favorite time of year. How about you? What are some of the things you love about autumn?
