Favorites of Fall

Taken by C. P. Lesley (from WANA Commons)

I have mentioned a few times in the past few weeks that, while the beach may be my favorite place to be, fall is my favorite time of year.  It is this season that I am thankful to live in such a great area of the country.

We live in eastern PA, just south of the Pocono Mountains. This time of year, the sights of fall are all around–mums are in full bloom, pumpkins abound, and the trees are a vibrant mix of reds, yellows and oranges.  Beautiful.

Of course, the beauty of the season is only one of the terrific aspects of fall. I love to cook and bake, and the foods of fall are some of my favorites–apple and pumpkin recipes, soups, stews and chilis, and comfort food galore!

It sure is a good thing that the crisp fall temps lend themselves to bigger clothing! Jeans and sweaters and scarves galore! Oh, and don’t forget the best shoe of all–BOOTS!

Pumpkin Bread, Tomato Bisque, and Oatmeal Cookies. Yum!

I may live in flip-flops from April through September, but I can’t explain how much I love pulling my boots out of storage every fall.  Of course, after six months in flip-flops, I have to learn how to walk in heals again, but it is so worth it!

I lived in Florida for a few years in my early twenties, and I loved it–an hour to the Atlantic, and hour to the Gulf.  Still, the one thing I missed more than anything (other than my awesome family) was the change of seasons.  As much as I say (especially during the dreaded winter months) that I would move back in an instant, I am not sure I could give up the beauty of fall again.  Which should make my mom happy. 😉

 What about you? What is your favorite season? What are some of your favorite things about it?
