It's that time again

Indeed, it's time for pumpkins and cider and the changing of the leaves -- ALL of which I love. But more importantly, and what I'm looking forward to as I watch the temperature continue to drop tonight, is crawling between my flannel sheets.

After our heat kicked on last night for the first time this season, I got up this morning and stripped our bed and put on our freshly laundered flannel sheets, knowing tonight would be just as cold.

Yup, it's that time of year again. Time for flannel sheets.

It's one of many things that make this my favorite time of year.

What do you like about Fall?

apple cider...a rainbow of leaves...when it's just cold enough that your nose starts to drip after running around outside...yams...pumpkins...and COSTUMES!

The sweet smell that lingers in the evening air of fires in fireplaces...and tasty carmel apples! :)

I like to be outside MORE in the fall than in the summer. This is the season where I find myself out on the stoop, taking walks, etc.

Pumpkin Pie. I LOVE pumpkin pie! When David and I were first married one of the only things I knew how to make was the pumpkin pie from the "Bride and Groom" William Sonoma cookbook - a handy wedding gift. Here's the trouble, David doesn't like pie. I allow myself to make my delicious pumpkin pie beginning Oct. 1 and the cut off date is Jan. 15...because I keep a fork in the pie and take a little bite every few hours. Just a sliver...a little smidge at a time and by the end of three days I have done away with the entire pie! Good heavens! Who does that! I do. Shamelessly. Because it's fall and cozy and time to fatten up I suppose.

That's my favorite part of fall.

There's just way too much to love to fit into one comment. Living in CO, I'd have to narrow it down to the leaves though. There are times where I literally have to stop just take it all in. My only wish is that the colors would stick around just a little while longer (but what are the chances of that when we're guaranteed snow by Halloween each year?)

Definitely my favorite time of year as well :)
