A few of my favorite things (about fall)

What do I love about fall?  How much time do you have?

I love the weather.  We've had a few fall-like days already.  I just wish it would stay that way!  There's something about fall weather that makes me want to sit out on the porch and enjoy a big glass of red wine.  It's the perfect time of year for enjoying our screened-in porch.

I love going to the beach this time of year.  It's no longer so hot, but sill nice.  Not to mention not as crowded.  We have gone to the beach in October every year since we started dating.  These days, we share our October beach trip with another couple and their little girl.

I love Halloween!  It has always been my favorite holiday, and now that I get to dress up two little ones, well that just makes it even better.  I will be coordinating their outfits this year.  Stay tuned to find out what they will be.

And of course, there's football.  It kind of takes over the South in the fall.  Football provides a good reason to get together with friends and socialize.  I sometimes get so involved in conversation with friends that I forget to pay attention to the game.  Oops!  But not to worry, eventually someone's husband will yell at the TV and get our attention.

Fall is all these things and more.  It's a trip to a pumpkin patch, mums on the front porch, watching the leaves start to change and the fall breeze that blows them out of the trees.

My only problem with fall?  It doesn't last long enough.

What are your favorite things about fall?  Do you have any fall traditions?
