    Yes – that’s a great list and image. You know I used to totally be a Fall-Freak!! BUT now my babes have turned me into a Summer-Nutcase. Its birthdays galore in the summer and long days camping and exploring, and swimming. You have a snazzy place over here. Love the look!

    Here in New Orleans we don’t have the typical changes others experience, but the days are cool enough to tolerate again, and we get a second blooming season. So I love it! But carving a pumpkin before October 30th is out of the question. It will be moldy before the first trick-or-treater rings the bell.

    There’s so much to love about fall! I really enjoy taking a walk through my well-treed neighborhood and seeing the leaves change color and swirl around with the wind. I love the special smells of fall, and the tastes of the season like pumpkin pie. This season is flowing with beauty and inspiration – we just need to notice it and appreciate it’s splendor.

    Since we moved to Southern California 6 years ago, every year I create fall in my house — just so we don’t get so homesick. The smell of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves simmering in a pot on the stove and a roasted squash soup usually do the trick. I love the fall harvest — the squashes, apples, and those wonderful root veggies…. Thanks for the sensory wake up call!

    • Its All About The Pretty says:

      I was born and raised in California by my mom who is from Buffalo and my dad who was from Sicily. They always talked about how wonderful Autumn was when they were growing up, I’m sure they are the reason I love Autumn so much, they made it a real season in our home!
