19 Things I'm Loving About Fall

1. Squash on the table from a friend's garden. 
2. The one mini pumpkin that our little garden grew.

3. Asian pears from my brother-in-laws Grandpa's house. Chopped up and then slowly simmered with cinnamon.

4. These make the whole house smell amazing!

5. Mini pumpkin chocolate chip muffins that the kids and I baked. 
6. Seeing my baby wear these booties that I wore when I was a baby.
7. Hats....... especially babies on hats. 
8. Candlelight dinners. 
9. Trails covered with leaves.
10. Kids in rain jackets.
11. Chilly adventures with my family.
12. Rain boots.
13. Stormy beaches.
14. Kids that love adventures and don't mind a little rain.
15. Big crashing waves.
16. This boy, tying knots with seaweed.
17. Driftwood forts.
18. New chalkboard art.
19. Twinkle lights on stormy, cold days.

We've had a few days where we've been able to be home enough to feel cozy and also, we've had some fun family time at the beach. I love that our kids are getting used to family adventures and even in the rain, they're having the best time. Today Judah said, "We've never had an adventure like that before!", as we piled back into the car and stripped off our rain soaked jackets.

I'm recognizing that I'm not a huge fan of the gray days so, I'm trying to get ahead of the game and do little things like hang twinkle lights. These small changes seem to make a difference and help make it easier to say goodbye to summer. What about you, what are you enjoying about this new season?

  3. Honestly - all of this just looks so idyllic!! I love stormy days on beaches too! Lovely pics of the fall vegetables too!

    1. Thank you Holly! I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes stormy beaches. I feel like most people avoid being outside when it's stormy, but something about it makes me want to get out there and experience it!

  4. candles...warm hugs...soups...warm cocoa.. beautiful colors....time to write and read and look and listen

  5. #5...looks so yummy! Do you have the recipe somewhere?
