Whispers of Fall

I'm so excited about fall. School has begun, the temperatures are lowering and I'm beside myself with happiness. Fall's just sooo thrilling. There are football games, hayrides, and the pumpkin patch. Not to mention my favorite accessories such as boots, scarves, tights and shawls. There's just so much to LOVE. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie. And the soups! Chicken noodle, taco, and potato-corn chowder, to name a few.  Oh, the goodness of fall. You'll probably be sick of hearing me talk about it by the end of the season. :D

Also, I'm the featured artist today over at Paint Party Friday so if you have a moment, check it out!

  21. Congratulations on being featured on PPF. Well deserved. I'm so happy that you love Autumn. I always loved it too when I lived in the States and one of my best friends goes gaaagaaa over it like you do...so I'm sure she influenced me. We live in a hot, humid tropical climate...year round and I MISS cool weather.

  28. I'm with you--Fall is hands-down my favorite season, too.

    It's starting to cool down a little bit here--night-time temps in the 50s, finally! I'll be happy to see some real fall weather--

  31. Found you through SouleMama and am so glad that I did! I'm so looking forward to fall and am definitely in an autumn state of mind. Our school doesn't start until next week, but I'm still feelings the stirrings of the end of summer.
