September and October are my two favorite months in the entire year, why? Because I love Fall!! I realize that the first day of Autumn isn't until September 23, but I think it is okay to jump the gun a little on this one. You see I spent a good portion of my childhood living in Connecticut and I believe that has a lot to do with why I love fall so much.
My Top 5 Things I Love About Fall
I love school, learning, going to class, carrying a backpack, packing my lunch, working on homework, reading, writing, and anything else that goes with school. I love when you walk into a store and they have just put up the school supplies for that year. I shop through that section every time I go to the store until they take it down. It's probably weird, but I do not care.
4. The Colors
I think this picture says it all. The colors are breathtaking and beautiful!!
3. Crockpot Cooking
I first introduced you to me Crockpot in my Recipe Review: Maple Ham blog post. This time of year is when I use my crockpot most. I am always on the lookout for good slow cooker recipes. I just love coming home from work, to the smell of dinner already cooked. If you find any good recipes this fall please send them my way.
I grew up in a family that loves and enjoys sports of all kinds. My parents were athletes and we all have the love of sports in common. As a little girl I would cheer for my Dad's team, which in football was the New York Giants.
When I got married things changed. I could not longer just cheer for my Dad's team, but I wanted to cheer for Jon's team...Denver Broncos. So now I cheer for both!
The sound that leaves make as they crunch under your feet or as the wind blows through the trees is what tells me that Fall has arrived. Like I said before I love fall colors and I think it is so neat how leaves change colors during this time of year. In the past I have collected Fall leaves and I still think I have some. I never want to forget the beauty of God's creation around me.
Do you love fall like I do? What are some of your reasons why you love fall?
