My favorite time of the year...

"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn."
-   Elizabeth Lawrence


So therefore, I am taking some time today to post my Autumn inspirations throughout my home. With all of the "busy-ness" of the past summer days, it was nice to wake with a breezy morning. Fall rejuvenates my soul and it is a season that patiently awaits a hibernation of rest and nesting for the cold winter months that soon will follow. A season of preparation and change no doubt.


It's the season for high school football, parades and bonfires.


It's the season for tricks and treats...


pumpkins and candy, and all that is sweet.


The burst of new color is so vibrant but yet so warm...


It's the combination of life trying to survive to the bitter end and the arrival of death preceding the birth of winter.


It's a wonderful time for family gatherings around the table and the smell of pumpkin pie and cinnamon...


Oh how I love Fall, it's my favorite season of the year. I long for the colors, the smells, the long shadows of the days and the cool temperatures of the evenings.


I anticipate sitting outside near the fire pit, being mesmerized by the flames as the shortened days of Autumn fall upon me...


Thanks for sharing my Autumn inspiration with me...I hope you enjoy the season as much as I do.
