30 Things I Love About Fall

Fall is a favorite season for many and as I said yesterday I think for me it is a time to slow down and nest; to take time to appreciate the little things in life and the ones I enjoy the most.

As I was reading your comments and the things that you  mentioned that you liked I decided to write my own list of the things I enjoy most about Fall. 

My 30 Favorite Things About Fall:

1. Pumpkins to carve or just enjoy as nature intended.
2. Apples, picked fresh at the orchard or from the farmers market
3.  Plaid blankets

4. A roaring fire in the fireplace or outside at the fire pit
5. Warm Socks and cosy slippers
6. Cashmere wraps and scarfs
7. Chili and hearty soups

8. Family  togetherness
9. Long walks
10. Candy Corns

11. When it gets dark at 5:00
12. Flannel pajamas
13. Hot Water Bottles to warm your feet at night

14. Endless supply of hot cocoa or hot cider
15. Time to sit on my porch with a stack of magazines and relax

16. Falling leaves piling up only to dance away on the lightest breeze
17. Candlelight evenings casting their warm shadows

18. Fresh baked bread right from the oven with honey butter
19. Wellies to splash around in the puddles and the damp grass
20. Barbour wax jacket to keep me warm and dry

  1. You have captured Fall beautifully. I love the sound of football games on the telly too (we do pay to get American ESPN, but with the time zones, they start at dinnertime), and all the cozy food. Cozy blankets. Cozy, cozy, cozy

  2. I think you covered every single one!!!!! I also love taking pictures in the fall (like to PRETEND I am a photographer) but no other season is as beautiful in my eyes. I love all your reasons and could not agree more, I call it the cozy season and I cannot wait!

  3. Good morning dear friend!

    I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU MENTIONED! The fact that many of these things slows me down to rest and cozy up is enough for me to embrace. I am off this morning to my first substitute teaching assignment, so I am happy about that.

    I still haven't heard from Adsense...hmmmmm. I wonder what I did wrong?


  4. I love your list! It is making me happy about fall. I need to make some of the goodies you mentioned in your list! :D LOVE this post. It has made me smile!

  5. The list of your fall items is great. I love it getting all cozy with the chillin air. I am still like a kid I love candy corn.


  6. I think you covered everything to love about fall Elizabeth. I personally can't wait to start up our wood stove! Today would have been good since it's cold and raining but Dylan dog is sleeping beside, can't roast the puppy!


  7. You covered everything! Your pictures are beautiful and your home looks cozy. It's my favorite time of year as I like to hunker down a bit and pull out the warm clothes!

  8. Elizabeth I think you have covered all of the best that comes with Autumn!! My favorite time of the year!

  9. Hi Elizabeth! I am embarrassed to say I have just discovered your beautiful blog...:) but wow what a treat! I share SO many things on your fantastic much to love....all best to you and I thank you for your wishes for my parents! xxoo~A

  10. All the things you mentioned, dear friend! The colors of the leaves take my breath away, the cooler air, the "excuse" to get cozy and many reasons to love this splendid time of year.
    And I see some pumpkin white hot chocolate...we had some the other day, and I'm making pumpkin pie today with the rest of the canned pumpkin...yummy.
    What are you baking up this weekend?
    Love to you!

  11. Baking with spices, and apples, and pears, and pumpkin, and molasses... baking. :) Sweaters, changing leaves, crunchy leaves, misty mornings, chilly walks, frost, hot apple cider, silent fall evenings, the smell of woodsmoke, getting ready for Christmas!!

  12. Going outside this Sunday morning with the dogs and standing under the sugar maples that are a giant umbrella of green in the summer, now yellow with the leaves drifting down on us in the dark drizzly day, feeling a shiver of anticipation that something wonderful could happen at any moment. And agreeing with your list and the above comments. This is it--the reward for a long hot summer.

  13. The only thing I do NOT like is it getting dark at 5PM. I LOVE daylight saving time and wish it was light til 8 or 9 every night of the year! I love the smell of spice candles, cozy socks, chili, soups, a fire in the fireplace and MY NEW HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
