    Autmn is my favorite time of year. I love all the colors and the weather is usually just perfect around here.

    I hate winter blech. It's rainy, cold and miserable. Plus it's dark when I go to and from work

    I love autumn days, as long as they are like theyre supposed to be, cant stand it when they are grey and wet - makes those lovely leaves all slippery and not crunchy!!

    Crunchy leaves are the best! Yesterday the whole family went to Hawks Nest state park & it was gorgeous. I loved walking thru & crunching on all the leaves on the pathways. Plus the smell of autumn, it was thick yesterday. It's also my favorite time of year. This has been a particularly pretty one too since we've had a good amount of rain, the leaves haven't dried up before they could turn colors.

    I love the scents of autumn. Why do dried leaves smell so good? I can't resent raking them when they smell nice! (Only the piles of dry ones, though, wet ones just smell like rotted yuckness!) I used to love jumping into big old heaps of 'em when I was a kid...or hiding down inside a leaf pile and waiting for my little sister to wander by so I could jump up and yell "BOO!"

    Nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, ginger--the spices we don't use as much until there's a chill in the air, I love the scent of those, too. Maybe because they hint at all the holiday baking soon to come?
    Love isn't about finding someone you can live with.
    It's about finding someone you can share a lifetime with.
