The rains are coming, but for today, and the next few days we have sun in the forecast. That is certainly something to celebrate!

Top ten best things about fall:

  1. Pumpkins. I love the look of pumpkins. I love going to the pumpkin patch. I love carving pumpkins. I love eating pumpkins (milkshakes, bread, muffins, pie). Love, love pumpkins.
  2. Apples. Again, love apples. Love to pick them, love to eat them, love to bake with them. Yum.
  3. Leaves. There isn’t much prettier than the reds, oranges, and yellows of the leaves. On the trees and kicking around the yard.
  4. Indian Summer. Yesterday we had a lovely day, while not technically Indian Summer, it’s a good enough description for me. Crisp, with soft sunlight filtered through the changing leaves, laughing children running through the grass soaking up all they can get.
  5. Colors. Fall colors are simply the best. Rich, warm, gorgeous.
  6. Sports. While I do have an affinity for college football, I love watching the little ones run and play at soccer and football the most. Building confidence, getting outside, and play. I could do without the games in the rain, but otherwise, perfection.
  7. Smells. Fall smells unmistakably of woodsmoke, cinnamon and spice, wool, apple cider, dried leaves, and pumpkin pie.
  8. Cider. Mmm. Apple cider. Fresh-pressed apple cider for the kids and a grown-up version for me!
  9. Beer. Fall and beer just go hand in hand, especially the darker, heavier beer that I like best! The husband makes it and I get to drink it.
  10. One step closer to snow. Snowboarding, skiing, sledding, and snowman building. This weather gets me thinking about the mountain. Can’t wait! ;)
