Every season has it's theme. Spring is for hope and renewal.
Summer is for fun and being carefree. Winter is for celebrations
and joy. And Autumn is for coziness and nesting after the
barefoot days of summer.
When I think of Autumn, I immediately think of crisp, ripe apples,
pumpkins and brightly colored mums.
Warm, comfy sweaters and plaids.
The bounty of Autumn. Squash and pumpkins in rich shades
of green, gold and orange.
Colorful leaves crunching under my feet.
And the splendor of Autumn
over my head.
Visiting an outdoor market.
And cheerful scarecrows everywhere.
Bringing the colors of Autumn into our homes.
Brewing a cup of cinnamon stick tea after a long walk
collecting colorful leaves.
Or cooking a big pot of squash soup to serve in a
hollowed out pumpkin to enjoy the last of the
season's outdoor dining.
Autumn to me is the hearth and home season.
A time when I look forward to the first cool crisp
evening. The first fire in the fireplace.
Adorable children showing up at our door
on Halloween. Snugging with Bentley and a
cozy quilt. Planning the Thanksgiving menu.
A beautiful time of the year!
Of course, down here in Texas with our mid 90 degree
weather, I am wondering if those cozy days will
ever come ;-)
Big Texas Hugs,
