Autumn is…

Watching tree leaves fade into beautiful shades of yellow, orange, red, and brown


Drinking warm beverages infused with pumpkin and spice

    What nice pictures; I love the ones of your son when he was a little one. Fall is on it’s way fast & furious here in NE Ohio. I love collecting little things & making arrangements. It’s so simple. 🙂

    Perfect Autumn-ness. 🙂 Fall is my favorite season, not just because of the family togetherness but the colors as well. Oooh that soup looks yummy. Is there a recipe you have on here for it?
