Autumn Decorating

We woke up Labor Day to a delicious slight chill in the air. Yes, we're still looking at afternoon temps in the high 90s and low 100s, but you can't fool me. Autumn is coming. To celebrate, I pulled out our fall decor and splashed the house with some oranges and reds and browns.

Autumn is my favorite season. The mild weather gives us a chance to peek our heads outside, and its coming is the signal for the most festive time of the year. October (when our real autumn weather sets in) through December is just the most pleasant time I can think of.

Hay rides, corn mazes, pumpkin-carving, costumes, and candy.

Holiday meals, craft fairs and festivals, treat-baking and -delivering, gift-buying and -sneaking and -giving.

Apples, cinnamon, caramel, nuts. Brown, crunchy leaves, sweaters and boots, pinecones, yarn, wool.

Ahh, it's a good time of year.
