It's Here! It's Here!

Fall is here!
I'm super excite for fall...
For one thing, it's hands down my favorite season...
Changing leaves
Shorter Days
Cuddling up in hand knit hats, cowls, sweaters, socks, mitts, etc.
Pumpkins! Oh Pumpkins! How I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E pumpkins
Football games
end of racing season...

the fall is a beautiful time of year...The days can still be warm and delightful, but there is a snap in the air and a change of smell that heightens the senses. It's a time where we can layer instead of bundle up...
Tank tops under sweaters, under cowls, under hats, and hand-knit socks that keep the snap from freezing your toes...

It's gusts of wind and leaves flying thru the air...

It's fall.
It makes me miss Minnesota.
The times that Megan and I would drive to Two Harbors and look at the leaves.
Walking down the driveway at home with my Mom...
The smell of burning leaves.
The new freshness in the air that's carried on the wind...
Did I mention pumpkins...

As I write this I picture my mom, walking thru her tomato plants and picking the ripe fruit. She makes  pretty big haul. On past visits I've done it with her and I love it. I wish I was there right now... I love the smell of tomato vines and I love eating a tomato sandwich made with her tomatoes...

It's time for my early weekend mornings, knitting and drinking coffee and hanging with the dogs....
It's harassing D on a daily basis to go to the pumpkin patch and try to convince him that I need 20 pumpkins, not just 4.

It's also our nine year anniversary.
This year we are doing something simply fabulous for our anniversary.
It includes friends, who also have anniversaries in October.
Wanna know why we all have anniversaries in October?
It's the end of racing season and we all married race car drivers...

Today I donned on the socks I finished over the summer...I'm doing a Floating Home tour with my friend and we have to take off our shoes...i dislike walking thru strangers homes without my shoes on but I really dislike doing it in my bare feet.

I'm just waiting for D so we can go have pancakes for breakfast...

Happy Sunday ya'll!

Love your post! Fall is here as well. You've inspired me to write about autumn today as well! But I need to wait until the sun goes down. :)

Wish you were here to go to the apple orchards and pumpkin patches with us! Or better yet I WOULD love to visit your pumpkin patch you visit out in WA. Looks like you have a fun time every time you go!
