This is my favorite season.  I get giddy the first time the air feels crisp outside and I smell the fall leaves.  I love the colors of the trees and the nights getting longer and cooler.  I love living with the windows open and the breezes blowing through the house.  I love apple and pumpkin picking and going to harvest festivals.  I love trying to get that last little bit out of the garden (my kale is still going strong).  It is just a good time of year to be alive.  That stifling summer heat that makes days seem like they will last forever is gone and fall seems to hasten things for me.  As if I only have a little bit of time to enjoy it all before the cold of winter descends.

I also love that I get to start baking with gusto again.  Pumpkin muffins are one of my favorite foods and I usually have muffins ready all fall long.  Inside the house, we start the season of decorating.  First we decorate for the Halloween and Fall, then the Halloween stuff gets replaced by a few Thanksgiving things.  Last but certainly not least, we get the Christmas decorations out and the whole house seems cheerier.
