A few of my favorite (fall) things

I love fall. Not just because my wedding anniversary is the day before Halloween, although that is a bonus. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I was lucky enough to plan a beautiful autumn and Halloween themed wedding and reception. (More on that in October.)

But here are just a few of the reasons that I love this time of year:
  • Pumpkin coffee and lattes:

  • Fall decorations:
My niece, Alexis, and I on her first Halloween
  • Candy corn (although Keith loves it more than me)


  • How cute my kids look all dressed up (Oct 2008):


  • The trees, as they go through their yearly ritual of change. Green leaves turn to bright orange, sunny golds, and deep auburn. They scatter the ground and create a beautiful sound under our feet as we walk.
  • The cool breeze as it turns into a sharp wind, creating the need for jackets and scarves.

"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."

"Even if something is left undone,
everyone must take time to sit still
and watch the leaves turn."
