Welcome Fall!

There's something lovely about the sound of leaves crunching underfoot, don't you think?

Fall is here and I love all the things that go along with it - the colors, the food, the clothing. It's the season where I start to drink lots of hot chocolate and apple cider.

Fall seems like a season that focuses a lot on family for some reason. Spring is the friendly season, Summer the playful season, Winter the Romantic Season. But I don't know what it is for sure that makes me link Autumn with Family. Maybe because we start to snuggle up a little more as the weather cools down? I don't know - but I love it. Bring on the homemade pies, the pumpkin soup and the all the other yummy Fall goodness!

I love so many things about fall - the colours, the chill in the air, wearing sweaters and boots, the smell, and of course my birthday which coincides with (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

Fall is just the best and I don't know how I'd feel if I didn't have it.

Sara said...

the weather and all the spicy drinks are my favourite!

Anna Ander said...

I love the crisp, high air (it's what it's called over here, sorry if it doesn't work in English). I love the gettingbacktonormal about fall, the backtoschool and backtowork and the non-drama that comes after summer with it's vacations and extravaganzes.

the colors, getting my warmer duvet out, home made soups, hot chocolate, the count down to Christmas, big warm scarves,staying home sunday evening and watch movies...
maybe buying a pair of really nice boots this year!

Pretty Neat Designs said...

My favorite thing about fall is pumpkins, especially mini white ones! I also love the weather and the way the sun turns everything gold. Oh, and the best part of the weather is that it is perfect for jeans and a sweater!

Meghan said...

Pumpkin spice lattes, boots and leggings! I love fall.

Make, Do & Send said...

I definitely love snuggling up as fall sets in. I hate the hot an sticky nights of summer fall is perfect for snuggling :)

Tender Branson said...

Apples (I say as I eat one for breakfast) are my favorite things about fall.

Jennifer Rose said...

I love the changing leaves, all the different colours. the golds and reds are gorgeous. sadly the trees around dont change that much :(

olivia rae said...

nicole addison said...

oh fall i love you so much! lovely pictures girl :)

the Lost Earring said...

Funny you should ask! I just posted about Halloween :) I love it and the fall can be truly amazing. One of my favorite things is the smell of smoke from wood stoves and fireplaces in the cool night air. There is something about fall air that is almost magical. It's nearly indescribable. Honestly, after our super hot summer the fall is a much needed reprieve :)

I love the colors of fall, the sunny yet breezy weather, and personally I think that fall's more the romantic time, and winter's the family time... but that's me :)

Rebecca said...

you name it and i love it about fall. truly, it is my favorite season...the colors, the tempuratue, indoor fires, baking, soups, teas, pumpkins, squash...i could just keep going on and on:)

2ndComing said...

Warm beverages and turning on the fireplace!

We name Fall as the best season for travel, good appetite, reading, arts and sports. The weather is just comfortable for doing anything you'd like to do. I'd like to visit Kyoto in fall to see changing colours of trees at every temple and shrine.

Kris said...

yum, apple cider! I can't wait to have some!

Michele said...

Fall is my favorite season! I love the colors, the smell in the air, the days where it's cool enough to wear a sweater/sweatshirt but not cold enough for a heavy jacket. I love apple picking, cider and slow cooked meals. Fall is probably the most comforting season for me!

Phoenix said...

I think you covered just about everything with the hot chocolate/hot apple cider comment.

Also carving pumpkins, and oh! oodles of Halloween candy.

PS I finally thanked you properly on my blog. Sorry it took so long, was having a crappy week...

sassy studio said...

I am a summer girl and Fall means feet of snow will soon cover everything here in SK. I like Fall best when it is spring and Fall is far away!
I remember walking in Houston in a mini jean skirt and t shirt while people in cars had scaves and gloves on!

Kotori said...

Dionne - that photo of the persimmons is gorgeous. It just screams fall.

Fall to me means trips to the farmers market, camping weekends and long walks after dinner with the kids. I do love fall.

Lindsey said...

Ahhhh. I LOVE fall...here in So Cal it isn't the same as it is in SLC. Yes, it's fall, but it doesn't quite feel like it yet. I get the tinglings when I bring home a butternut squash for soup and hear college football on tv. But the weather is still a stifling level of mercury and the leaves are just dry. I miss looking at the mountains and seeing them speckled with reds and yellows, and SMELL the crisp autumnal air...
I can't wait for the feeling...come quickly!

Kristin said...

I love watching the leaves change, when I'm in a city where I can see that that is. Ah ha. I make do with how happy caramel apples make me!

Jenna said...

Im so into some hot apple cider! Unfortunatly it hasn't quite hit the cool down temps for AZ yet. We are almost there, give me another week for a hot beverage! ;)

Ali said...

Sigh...love fall SO much! Unfortunately, it's not as obvious here in southern California. Tough times. But this post made me feel like it was! :)

Little Miss Tiara said...

ah, I'm always envious of people who lives in four seasons area, I never really experienced fall, spring, summer and most especially winter. I always love seeing the pretty colors of fall.

avant garde said...

i love outdoor walks, the smell of fall, cinammon, and warm cider. although we do make a mean drinking chocolate, made with columbian chocolate and cream,home made whipped cream on top... you'd go crazy! :)

Pamela said...

Oh, I love this post! I love fall, too...there is just something so magical about it. I love sipping hot apple cider at night in my warm lil' home knowing it's cold and chilly outside. :)

LBB said...

Oh, I'm with you on the hot drinks of most any kind...and sweaters, tall boots, and trips to the Apple Orchard! Happy Fall, Dionne!

oh, hello friend. said...

happy fall!
thank goodness it is getting cooler here now!

i love apple cider + hot chocolate! apple cider for the fireplace, hot chocolate for camping or a beach night :)

hope you're well! can't wait to get together in the WINER!
