Loving Autumn

Well, it's that time of year!  Welcome, my friends, to the first day of Fall!

Autumn really is one of my favorite times of year.  Personally, I think it has a great element of romance to it.  There is a charm about autumn.  And there's just so much to love about this particular season.

Here's a list of some of my own favorite things about Autumn:

*Hot chocolate    (loaded with mini-marshmallows, of course)
 *Halloween    (I mean, come on -- fun costumes and free candy! What's not to love?)
 *Hayrides    (say what you want about how cheesy hayrides are, I think they're AWESOME!)
 *Thanksgiving dinner    (bring on the mashed potatoes! Oh, yeah, and the turkey and stuffing...)
*Pumpkin pie    (don't forget the whipped cream!)
*Pumpkin pie ICE CREAM    (all hail Baskin Robbins!)
*Sweaters    (talk about cozy and comforting)
*"Punkin' Patches"    (it's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!)
*Crisp fall air    (it's just beautiful this time of year, no doubt about it)
*Carving jack-o-lanterns    (even if it's kinda yucky working with all those seeds)
*Scarves and peacoats    (I love autumn fashion!)
*The start of the Holiday Season    (nope, I don't care how much you nay-sayers want to whine about how long the holidays last...I eat it up!)
*Pumpkin bread    (what can I say?  I love my pumpkin products!)
*Jumping in piles of leaves    (the only way to make up for having to rake them)
*Caramel apples    (just...yum!)
*County fairs    (can we bring back this tradition BIG-TIME?! We don't get enough of this pastime anymore!)
*Holiday candy    ('nuff said)
*Scary movies    (what better excuse to snuggle with your sweetheart?)
*Rainstorms    (I LOVE rain!)
*Apple butter    (Oh.  My.  Gosh.)
*Campfires    (roasting marshmallows!)

And, of course...FALL COLORS!


So, what's YOUR favorite thing about Autumn?
