20 Things to Treasure in Autumn

I so love this season but most of the time I hate to admit. I'm always so sad to see summer go. I love summer, it's my favorite. But there are so many great things about fall. If it weren't for looming winter fall might be my favorite but shh, don't tell anyone!

1.Warm sunny days with cool nights
2.All the earth tones
3.Smell of pumpkin candles
4.Leaves changing color
5.Johnny Appleseed Day
6.The 5 Little Pumpkin Song
7.Apples, apples, and more apples
8.Pumpkins of any color-love the almost green
9.Warm Apple Cider with a cinnamon stick
10.Crockpot Applesauce
11.Hikes with the family
13.Warm pumpkin pancakes
15.Playing outside after dark in sweatshirts
16.Halloween night
17.Making costumes
18.Hot cocoa
19.Corn Stalks
20.Candy Corn

What about you? What are some of your favorites?

I miss autumn in the north. I love the colors of the changing leaves. Every October my Dad would have a bonfire right around my birthday, we'd cook hotdogs, toast marshmallows and make smores. I swear I can still smell it if I think about it hard enough.

Oh and Candy Apples. My Mom made the best candy apples and she'd make them for me to take as a treat for my class...everyone looked forward to those every year.
