Happy Fall Ya’ll

 

Morning all!

 

Friday was the most magical day of this year for me!

It was the first day of fall!

I get high during this time of year and before you question our friendship, let me explain.

I love spring as things come to life and bloom and grow.  I had my fist successful tomato plant this year and am still picking them off to enjoy. ( this was a big deal because my love of gardening involves tossing it into the ground and walking away letting nature do its thing. Baby steps people, baby steps)

The smells are sweet, the flowers are beautiful, the bees are buzzing and trees are celebrating!

Fall is different.

The leaves on tress begin to transition from green to shades of yellow, orange, reds and browns. As I walk down the trails, I am greeted by shower of fallen leaves and the smells of fireplaces, rain and the smell of cooler temps.

Pumpkin patches and corn mazes are everywhere!

Candy corn!

Sweaters, scarves and boots move from the back of my closet to the front.

Hot coco and homemade chicken noodle soup and chili make it to the menu for the week of dinners.

Football has begun.

Halloween and the holidays are just around the corner.

Moods of those who are spent from the heat of the summer perk up.

Everyone has a favorite season and Fall is mine. It wakes me up as nature begins to hibernate.

My hubby and I made an impromptu trip up to the mountains this weekend to take in some of the leaves changing. I was in such awe of all the yellows, I failed to snap any photos.

By the time it dawned on my to do so, the best views were already behind us and we were coming back down the mountain, I captured one.

I almost deleted this one but then I decided this depicts fall!

It’s raining as we are driving on a mountain road and there’s just a hint of color peaking out and the smells are amazing! Had we not been driving, we would have been at home, vegging on the couch binge watching Netflix because what else do you do on days like this?

Happy Fall Ya’ll!

  1. Kisma,

    I love fall, too! It definitely is looking like fall in your neck of the woods. I noticed yesterday some of the trees beginning to change in East Tennessee and I believe this is the first time in many years to see hints of reds and orange so soon. I mean, we usually see the leaves turning brown from the heat before any colors which happens typically in mid-to-late October. I wonder what this means, will we have early fall like conditions? Are we in for a hard winter? It’s been years since we’ve had one! I hope that’s not the case because I hate severe weather that’s why fall and spring are my favorite seasons. I’m the happiest with those in-between temps – not too hot and not too cold conditions. Enjoy autumn while you can because Old Man Winter will be here in a blink of an eye. Thanks for dancing with me today! 😉

  2. I’m with you. I love fall too… not that we have a true change of season here but it does get a little cooler and I love decorating the house for fall as well. I started on my fireplace mantel yesterday. 🙂 Also, I’m a big fan of all things pumpkin/ pumpkin spice.
    We went to the mountains of NC again when we “evacuated” for hurricane Irma and I got to see the first hints of fall. It was great. I miss that so much.

A penny for your thoughts...
