20 Little Things I Love About Fall

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
~George Eliot


Melissa at The Inspired Room is hosting a wonderful fall party to last the month of October, kicking off with “The 20 Things I love about Fall” linky party.  I love this concept.  I really truly do!  In a world where we are slapped in the face with negative thoughts and attitudes on a daily basis, how wonderful it is to sit down and treasure even the most simple little things in our every day lives!

Here is my list of little things I LOVE & TREASURE about fall:

  The Upstate mountains colored by God’s hand

 

 
 Carving pumpkins
 Crisp cool mornings and evenings; sleeping with the windows open at night
  Friday night high school football with my children

our state championship team running onto the field!

 {Georgia Bulldog football on Saturday afternoons}

 

 

                 Final harvest of fresh vegetables

Sitting on the patio in the evening with a patchwork quilt, cup of hot tea, and my favorite magazine
 
Fresh orchard apples for making apple butter, apple pies, apple cider and caramel apples!




 Raking the leaves & mowing for the last time


 

  Pulling out the colorful sweaters and festive sweatshirts for those cool evenings out

 

  The first pot of piping hot pot of taco soup.

 

 

  Glittery Halloween decorations

 

 
  Pumpkin patches and hayrides
 Bonfires & roasting marshmallows

 

Mother’s sweet potato souffle smothered in marshmallows and pecans
 Pumpkin spice candles flickering in the kitchen

  the last of my summer roses

 


 

 

  Crock pot dinners with the entire family

 

 Pumpkin pies

 

  
  Our annual family camp-out with my parents, siblings, nieces & nephew in the Smokey Mountains
 
our adventure last fall holiday
I feel like my list could go on and on as there are so many glorious things to love about this autumn season!
What do you like best about fall?
 
And be sure to stop by the Inspired Room for more autumn fun.
