Quote of the Weekend

This sounds like a lovely place to be! Happy Autumn everyone!

Happy Autumn

autumn-fall-wallpaperIt’s the first day of fall, and thus it’s my favorite time of the year!  Now for leaves and crisp mornings! Now for long dark nights, sweaters, hot chocolate, fires, and leaves, leaves, leaves. Soon the chill will increase and the coats will come out. Soon the days will be short and sweet and Christmas will loom on the horizon. But now pumpkins will turn the world orange and one scary night will herald in the holiday season. Soon we will have a day of Thanks and over eating. Happy First Day of Fall!

(Yes. I know it’s still hot down here in Texas, but a girl can dream, right?)

Thanksgiving 3

523568_10202312866250989_556158456_nToday I thankful for fall.  I love the cool rain, the shorter days, and the bright trees.  I love the leaves blowing across my lawn and sprinkling the streets with orange.  I love the gray sky contrasted with the orange, yellow, and brown foliage change.  I love sweaters and scarves.  I love extra blankets and fires in the fire place.  I love holidays that bring family  together to make merry.   Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.   I love the promise of hibernation, rest from work.  I love how the dying of the leaves and the sleeping of all the little creatures makes spring all the more wonderful.  Fall is a season of rest.  It is a time of inside looking out.  I love the beauty of fall.
