My Favorite Season

by Carol

Alright Ms. Hubman - you have inspired me to join you in making lists. And the first one just has to be:


1.  No more New Jersey humidity - Oh my gosh, I can breath again!
2.  Sleeping with the windows open and the blankets piled on.

3.  Complimentary colors in my back yard that literally change every day
4.  Halloween Memories - My daughter was born Nov. 2 - lots of Halloween parties at our house!
5.  Crunchy walks, red fox sightings, leaves moving around me.

6.  Sweaters, sweatpants, warm socks, flannel
7.  Slippers
8.  The first fire of the year - no better smell.
9.  Thanksgiving - no pressure, no presents, just good food, good football, and a family in sweatpants.
10. Boots, Duck shoes and Uggs

11. Stew and soup
12. Wreaths
13. Berries
14. Apple Crumble, Turkey and stuffing

15. Pumpkin Bread, pumpkin doughnuts, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin carving, PUMPKINS!

16. New TV season (and the end of election coverage!)
17. Afghans on the couches.
18. Geese flying in formation-  honk honking as they pass

19. My golden retriever looks even more beautiful in the fall. (It helps human redheads too)
20. The light in my kitchen.
21. Hot apple cider
22. Candles that smell like cinnamon

23. Apple picking, eating, baking
24. Roasted cashews on NYC streets
25. The photography is off-the-charts gorgeous and abundant

I could keep this up all night......
How about you?

I LOVE THIS! It's obvious that you do love this time of year. You've created a fabulous list of all things wonderful in fall and taken some amazing pictures. Now, if fall would only get to my neck of the woods, I could enjoy some of the very same things!! The last couple of mornings have been cool, I feel it coming! I think you'll enjoy list making! We went on a little road trip this past week and I made a list of unusual restaurant names. Green Cow, Horse Grill, and Silly Chilly made me laugh. List making is just plain fun!

Well - when you say you're going to make a list, you don't mess around, do you? This is a terrific list and I'm nodding my head in agreement with each one. And savoring those beautiful fall photos. It's so good that you captured these when you did because fall can leave us in the blink of an eye. Let's soak it up while we can!

I wanna make my FALL list... this is definitely a beautiful time of the year. Makes me want to "snap" the beauty in my city & revive my blog! FOL is such an inspiration for those of us who wonder if we should leave our blogs dormant? Food for thought... and the upcoming holiday season certainly conjures thoughts of food.

I love your list! So many things to love about this time of year and you have captured most of them. Those shots of you and your dog are adorable! I fell in love with fall when I lived in New York. After suffering through my first summer there with the humidity (which was totally foreign to me!) the reward came in October and November when the world turned into a technicolor wonderland! Here fall just means a lowering of temperatures. We have to drive a bit to see fall color but there are still a lot of things to love about fall here as well. Thanks for sharing your list!

Great list, pumpkins don't come high on my list, being from the UK our traditions are different. Fireworks play a large part due to Guy Fawkes night on November 5th. So the smell of bonfires and sparklers always remind me of my childhood. Certainly we have had a wonderful Autumn in my part of the world the colour has been amazing. The smell of cinnamon and vanilla conjure up all that is yummy at this time of the year as well I could go on......
