Fall is in the Air

Happy new week everyone!  Well, if you get up early enough, the temps are in the 70's, and most daytime temps are below 100....so, woohoo, Fall is in the air!  Okay, maybe it's not quite here, but it's getting close!

What is it about Fall that causes so many of us to declare it to be our favorite season?  For many of us, depending on what part of the country we live in, it is a wonderful change in weather.  For others it may be a much-needed excuse to bring out some warmer colors and add that cozy-factor to our decor.


Whatever reason we each may have, it's hard to find fault with the sweet smell of a Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte candle, or gingerbread baking in the oven or some delicious soup cooking in the crockpot.

All these things seem to beckon us home.  There is a quietness to Fall, a serenity as we dig out our most comfy stretchies or pjs to cuddle up in on the sofa.  It's football season, you know!


The craziness of Christmas is still a ways away, unless you spend too much time in your favorite craft stores!  Still, you have plenty of time, right?


Fall is the time to switch from all those "iced" drinks to mugs of warmth.  I think Starbucks has already started serving up yummy Pumpkin beverages!


Fall, with its clear crisp air, beautifully colored leaves, and the laughter of children playing outside, truly gives us pause to reflect on our blessings and be thankful.  I know we should be thankful all the time and most of us are.  But Fall seems to wrap us in its warmth and makes us even more grateful and thankful for all of life's many blessings.

What does Fall mean to you?  Do you enjoy it or not?  Have you indulged in a warm Fall beverage yet?  I'd love it if you would share what this season means to you.  I hope you all have a very lovely week.

Warm hugs,
Carol
