Falling Leaves {and all the goodness of fall}

I adore fall.

It is my favorite season with spring a close second.

The crisp air, the leaves crunching under your feet, big pots of something good on the stove, apple picking, apple cider, loving on my home more…it is all so good.

It is too short though.

Maybe that is why I cherish it and miss it once it is gone.

A few weekends ago we took the children to the Littleton Historical Museum’s harvest festival.

I love this land and how you step back in time…even if only for a moment.

It was a morning full of walking through the old farm, making cider, eating pumpkin pie, carriage rides, a little lassoing and picking out our pumpkins.

Just as we were heading back to the car it started to sprinkle.

Our timing was perfect and with our bellies full of cider and pumpkin pie and our trunk full of pumpkins…we headed home to carve.

What is your favorite thing about fall?

    OH MY HEAVENS, y’all are so cute. Your post makes me think of the quote, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

    I love absolutely everything about this time of year! Crock pot meals, cider mills, changing colors, the excuse to wear scarves and boots. I could go on and on. The only thing I love more than autumn is Christmas:)

    I always say that Spring is my favorite ~ I love seeing everything waking up ~ greening up ~ the shoots poking up through the soil…. but Fall is right up there with me too. I love the changing leaves ~ the crisp mornings that make way to sunny afternoons. Loving the course Jeanne ~ so much inspiration in one place,

    I ‘m just in love with the vibrant colors of fall and that sense of change and energy it gives me. And I love the golden cast of the sun and the coziness of shorter days.
    Looks like your family enjoyed a wonderful outing! xo K.

    Your children are precious. I love fall, too and yes it does seem way too short, but these cool crisp days are perfect for crunching through leaves. Are we ever too old for that?

  12. Peggy
