Fall is my favorite time of the year. The cooler weather, the brilliant changing colors of the leaves, anticipation of the Holidays, and more time spent in the kitchen baking quick breads, cookies, etc. for Holiday gifts. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Definitely the cooler weather! But also the nights drawing in. I love the long summer evenings, sitting out on the patio till 9:00. But I also like night falling earlier, sturdier dinners made in the crock pot, cocooning with a good book or a good DVD.

My favorite thing about fall is going to the cider mill! Even if I don't get a donut (but I sometimes do!), the smell makes it worthwhile.

Watching the leaves turn all different colors and hearing the geese overhead, flying south. To me nothing says Fall as much as those two things.

I love fall because of the beautiful colors of the trees and flowers. And I love that it's cool enough to be able to open up the windows and let fresh air into the house! Good sleeping weather at night, too!

Things cooling down and my boys start staying closer to home, because its too cold to hang out after school. They bring their friends over and watch movies... I fix popcorn or some other snack... its a crazy noisy time, but I love it!!!

Well for one I love sweaters and bundling up to take walks in the fall. I love when the leaves change color! Hot cocoa and a good book on cool evenings are the bomb. The smell in the hair is so fresh and clean. Fall is magical for me, I've always loved this time of year! Even tho its not offically fall here in Northeast Ohio, its starting to feel like/look like it!
