The Fall Fancies

Houston really was gorgeous this weekend.

The weather was the most beautiful I have ever seen it - the perfect balance of sun and breeze. Houston is it's most beautiful in Fall, I love it! I have the Fall Fancies.

In Spring and Summer, Houston is ridiculously hot and humid, but in the Fall it cools down nicely. Perfect weather for the lovely Garden Party we went to this afternoon. Our friends had a little get-together in their backyard, and although remarks about the weather are usually reserved for small-talk with strangers, the weather this weekend was too perfect not to come up in conversations all throughout the party.

It was also perfect for eating homemade pizza in the sun.

I love Fall, it really is the best time of the year! I love being able to wear sweaters and jackets and boots! The chill in the air just makes me feel great.

That pizza looks so ridiculously good that I may need to make some right now (even though it's 10pm)!

I've never been to Texas, but definitely want to visit Austin for obvious reasons. The weather has been nice here (Seattle area) too. Nice and cool but residual summer sun.

Oh, that pizza looks so incredibly yummy.

I'm having some fall fancies (yearnings?) of my own too - so I'm getting the spiced apple cider at Starbucks every chance I get, 90 degree weather be damned!

Kristin said...

The weather was gorgeous here too! I'll be flying into Houston in a couple weeks, before I drive with my girl to her bach party in Austin. I hope the weather is kind to us then too. A big fat YUM to that pizza!
