First day of Fall


Melissa over at the Inspired Room wrote a list of 20 things she loves about Autumn.
Fall is my favorite time of the year, we got married October 5th, 17 years ago.

My favorite things about Autumn
Pumpkin Pie
Baking cookies!
Warm apple pie
Roasted chestnuts
Fall decorating
Chicken pot pie
Candle lit evenings
Snuggling up with my kids, my favorite blanket and book (or watching old movies)
Crisp fall evenings
Fall foliage
Baking bread
Crock pots of stews, chilis and soups
Autumn in NY
Playing board games with the kids
Sunny crisp morning walks
Sitting at an outdoor cafe drinking Hot chocolate a Latte or coffee
Cooking for Family and my Circle of Friends
Watching my kids jumping in a pile of leaves
Taking a drive in the country and seeing the changing leaves
Sipping hot chocolate while cuddling under a blanket out on the deck or on my favorite chair

I've been so busy lately that I forgot to mention I redesigned my blog. Do you like it? I also opened up my etsy shop. More vintage treasues will be posted shortly.

In other news, Miss Tanya started Italian school on Saturday mornings, just like I did when I was her age. Daniel will start his swimming lessons. Saturdays will be busy but I look forward to Saturday afternoons.


What is your favorite thing about fall? Leave me a comment. I love reading comments especially after a busy day at work.

Enjoy your day!

I do like your new blog design! I like many of the things on your list - being able to use my crockpot to make stews & soups is a favorite!

I love switching from iced coffee to hot mocha... I love putting baked apples in the oven before bed so we wake up to them... I love the crisp cool mornings and the hot bright afternoons... the smell of fireplaces going in the neighbourhood once again... the Halloween goodies in the stores... and the new TV shows too!

Alas, I have nothing to compare your new design with this being my first visit, but it looks great to me...very crisp and open.

I enjoyed reading your autumn list!

I did the same thing and posted what I liked about fall. It is always so nice to just sit back and think what it is that you really like about fall. I enjoy your blog. Thank you.

By the way, where if I may ask, did you get your template? I'm trying to change mine but I don't like the usual ones they have at blogspot.
