{Dreaming of Fall}

A few weeks ago Mason and I went to our downtown area to take some pictures of Mason. When we were leaving I found a few red leaves and it filled my soul with so much happiness. A little piece of Fall smack dab in the middle of Summer. A little promise of what is to come. So naturally it made me start dreaming of Fall. It's my favorite time of year and I can't help it. I just wish that we had a bit of a longer Fall here in Texas. It's short...just like our Winter & Spring. I try to soak up as much of it as I can. Fall just does something to my soul.

What are some of your favorite things about Fall? I've listed some of mine below...

What are your favorite things about Fall?


  1. Fall is my favorite time of year ;) I'm so excited for the smells, sounds (crunchy leaves), pumpkin spice overload, cool weather.. carrying on fall family traditions..Ahh, I'm so excited! :)

  2. Fall makes me a little sad cause it means that I have to wait all year for Summer to roll back around. But I do love lighting candles and the smell of chili cooking in the house. It also usually means a little getaway with my sweetie, so I definitely look forward to that!

  3. I have to say - the chillier air and all things pumpkin. Even though we live in Florida, our winter is just perfect. We don't have the amazing leaves but hey, it's a bargain. No snow either!

  4. Yes to absolutely all of these! Fall is about all things family and cozy and yummy.

  5. I love all things fall! My family makes apple butter and we are in charge of this big festival! I just love everything about it!

  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE Fall! I think I just love all the holidays and the family time!

  7. Yay for Fall! I love all the seasons, and I'm a little sad about Summer being almost officially over... but I am looking forward to Fall, bring on the colder weather!

  8. I'm not an avid baker but I'm so ready to make some good ole richly flavored cakes for fall! I'm taking note from your list for more to do... I need to up my fall fashion!

  9. Everything on your list....except candy corn, I just can't.

    I am chomping at the bit to build a fire in the fire pit. I was THIS close last night.

  10. We don't have much in the way of Fall, either. Back home (in Iowa) I loved having the windows open and letting the crisp, cool air flow through then house. There was just enough bite in the air to really need to snuggle into warm cozy blankets.
    Also, I love that you call the evening meal "supper." Scott thinks it's funny when I refer to it that way instead of dinner.

  11. I love all those things about fall, too + my mama's pumpkin rolls :) Best time of year ever!!!
