My Favorite Season

Autumn is my favorite season of the year. Why do I love autumn so much, you ask? There are a lot of reasons, and I'll share a few with you.

The colors. All the reds and golds and oranges of the leaves turning colors are simply breathtaking. I live in North Texas where only a few variety of trees actually change color in autumn. I'm surrounded by mountain cedars which stay green all year long. But those trees that do turn color...there is nothing more beautiful.

The cooler weather. Our summers are hot and humid. Most of us breathe in relief when the weather starts to turn cooler. Finally, we can walk outside without feeling as if we're hit in the face with a wet washcloth!

Football. Those of you who subscribe to my newsletter know how much I love football. I wait all spring and summer to be able to watch football again in the fall. And no, those tight pants the players wear have nothing to do with why I love the sport. Okay, maybe a little. :-)

The holidays. Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas. (I know Christmas is technically a winter holiday, but don't burst my bubble.) Those holidays mean fun for the kids and togetherness for family, lots of good food and laughter. Who doesn't love watching a child open a present on Christmas morning and seeing his or her eyes light up with happiness?

Christmas is the holiday where all of us are children again. And that's the most special reason of all to love autumn.

Happy Holiday Season On The Way, Lynn!

Yup - I love Fall, too. Best time of the year. We sure got cheated this year in Minnesota, however. The weather was not condusive to wonderful colors like normally. The wind was so bad that the trees were stripped before too much change. I hate when that happens! So now we're gearing up for winter. Unbelievably it's near 50 today. Feels like a heat wave. But that prickly ol' Man Winter is hiding out there, just ready to burst in on us when we're not paying attention.

Hope all is well with you!

Autumn's my fave too, and Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. The season's a winnah!

Hi, Ruby. Stay warm and keep those pizzas coming!

I agree with you on all counts. (And fall is also the time of my birthday.) It's nice to meet another female football fan!

Best--Adele Dubois

I have to say, fall in Scotland mostly means rain, rain, rain. I prefer winter, I love a frosty morning when the sun is shining. It never fails to energise me. Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends.
