Welcome October...

Fall is my most favorite season. I love those first gusts of cold air and the wind beginning to whip the leaves around like confetti across the roads. I love the colors--the fiery reds, the warm browns and the cheerful yellows. I love fires in the fireplace and pumpkin scented candles. I love hearty meals (cooked by my very own personal chef, Rob) like pot roast, roasted butternut squash, meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I love wrapping myself in cozy sweaters, knit scarves and pulling out the tall boots. I love the cheesy Disney Halloween movie Hocus Pocus, which Rob searched for high and low for a couple years ago, that we're planning on watching tonight. I love going to the pumpkin patch and taking the hayride to choose our pumpkins out at Sauvie's Island. I just love everything about it! But this year I love this most of all:


Hurray for Lucy's first Autumn! What do you love about fall?

PS. Awhile ago someone mentioned to me a better option for posting pictures on my blog so that they come out clearer. I cannot find the comment and my pictures aren't looking as good as they should. Can anyone help a gal out?

"No spring not summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face."

Today was the first day I was able to visit you online (been reading on my phone). Just wanted to say that I LOVE the new layout. Go you!

My favorite thing about fall is fall food, like hot mulled cider, and fires in the fireplace.

We love HocusPocus too! Have you watched the "Halloweentown" movies on ABC Family Channel? They are an October tradition in my house.

Love Hocus Pocus!! My brother and I used to watch it multiple times every year. Too funny. I love fall, too, I think it's the smell outside with that crisp air. Best time of year!

I made the comment about the other picture posting options...What I've ended up doing was hosting my pics at either tinypic or flickr. i like the results SO much more than picasa. i think photobucket is another good option, but i haven't tried it. i can send you an invite if you want to see my blog and see what i'm talking about. i think you can get my email from this comment?
