Is it autumn yet?

I can’t wait!

But it’s coming, I’m sure.

Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year.  Three amazing holidays fall in autumn (oh, that was a good one!)…Halloween, Thanksgiving and My Birthday.  I’m so excited!

There are so many other reasons I love fall.

The aroma of evening fireplaces burning in the neighborhood.  Wearing sweatshirts and jeans. Shuffling through crisp, crunchy leaves on the ground.  Shopping for new school supplies (even though I don’t really need any more pens).  Saying the words ‘burnt umber’.  Wearing fluffy socks. Baking punkin’ pies.  Sipping apple cider.  Putting more blankets on the bed.

Here in Colorado, it’s a little early for most of that…today’s temp finally dipped below 95 degrees, the Front Range is still pretty green, and putting more blankets on the bed would be ridiculous.  But I know it’s coming.  I saw it in the leaves…
