My Favorite Things About Fall

Cooking in the crock pot – I love coming home to a hot supper, even better if I also used the bread machine that day. Warm, already prepared food and fresh bread… That’s a winner!

Cherry Cider. There’s a great local place that sells the yummiest cherry cider, a splash of rum makes it even better on cool nights.

Sweaters. I love warm, fuzzy sweaters, open sweaters and cardigans over colorful t-shirts, hoodies and even old sweat shirts.

Scarves, gloves and socks. My feet have been in sandals all summer, my hands and neck uncovered, I can’t wait to wrap them up in warm cozy things!

Sweatpants. I’m such a bum. I love my sweat pants and “lounging clothes”.

Changing leaves and sunflowers blooming. Set aside your perception of Kansas, because we’re in a heavenly spot with hills and trees; a nice surprise in a flat, Midwestern state.

Hayfields. Something about a hay field with big round bales just makes me catch my breath. I don’t know why.
Orange, brown and yellow fall colors. Nuff said.

Deep layers of blankets on the bed, sleeping with the windows open so that the house is cool and crisp and I’m toasty warm while I sleep.

Drinking hot tea before bed. I think the absolute best way to fall asleep is cuddled up with LT Fromage under a down comforter reading a good book and drinking a warm mug of Sleepy Time with some half and half… zzzz….(Try the new vanilla version of Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time tea if you get a chance!)

Breaking out the space heater. We’ve got a tall, oscillating space heater that brings the bathroom to a toasty 92 degrees so that stepping out of the shower in the morning feels oh so nice.

I love you fall. Please stay forever.


  1. AMEN!!! I could've written this exact post...I see you share my heart for Fall. Isn't it the most wonderful of seasons??! In honor of my love for it (:-)), I'm hosting a Fall Friendship Swap over at my blog. Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for it, but after reading your post (which I found through BBLauren) I just had to tell you about it! Love to have you join! Hope you're having a great Thursday so far... ~Kristin from Windy Poplars

  2. I'll add the Fair to your list! I love how the Fall gets me all giddy for the fair!

  3. Love this post! I have a very similar one over at my blog (My 5 Fall Favorites). Oh I wish Fall would stay forever, it's so pretty and nice. I stumbled on your blog from Lady Bloggers and am now following!
