This is for my Super Pie Sistas at www.sugarpiefarmhouse.com and fellow friends yearning for fall/autumn. Ok, ok, I know its only mid-summer, but I know a few including myself that are itching for a cool crisp breeze (ya know, the kind you can put on a light sweater and feel cozy), the warmth of a hot mug filled with hot apple cider or hot cocoa, the bright and vibrant colors that autumn brings...greens, oranges, reds and yellows, the crackling of the dried leaves underneath your feet, the sweet smell of fall.
Can you not wait to come home to a warm home that smells of pumpkin pie? Yes, thats right, its time to start baking and sharing your goods with family and friends. Where the days have shortened and you get to spend time with your family again. Time to give thanks and reflect on the years past and be thankful you can do so. The fall decorations are out and look how easy they are, gather some twigs and sticks, put them in a vase or a hollowed out pumkin and instantly it becomes fall, throw in some color like the apples and your done and how pretty would an orange mum be sitting by those apples.
Its time to go out and clean up the yard from the summer, plant bulbs, carve your pumpkins, maybe even a get together for a hay ride.
Then come and take a nice hot Gingerbread scented bubble bath, put on your most comfy jammies and sit by the warm glow of a candle and read a good book.
Yep, its simply a bittersweet time of year. I know we need to be thankful for each season and with season comes change. I am thankful for each season and the changes they bring. I hope you are too. So, while we are still enjoying summer, we can look forward and plan, being like a child waiting on Santa Clause...waiting with anticipation to see what the next season brings. ~THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE, I WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT. PSALM 118:24. I hope you all do the same.
Thanks for stopping by,
Warm Autumn Wishes
