The weather is starting to turn cooler here in New England, and yes! the trees are starting to turn!!! But I’m not excited or anything….
For most, September marks the end of the summer. For me, its the beginning of so much. This is the time of year I always feel the least obligated. No one asks what your plans for fall are. There’s no impetus to join the hundreds at the beach or lake. You don’t need to check the weather to plan your grocery store trips as you do in the winter. There’s no worries about getting your body ready for bikini season.
Instead there is apple picking and cider donuts. Pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving meal planning. Bad hair day? Just pull on a cozy knitted hat. Nowhere to be on Sunday — curl up under a quilt and a cat and read a good book. Especially with a mug of mulled cider or spicy hot cocoa.
Fall is, and always has been my favorite season. But not just for atmosphere and food. I have a lot of personal milestones linked with fall.
9 years ago, I met my husband in the fall.
4 years ago I married him in the fall (and got my very own sewing machine!).
And last year, I started this blog in the fall.
And holy cornbread stuffing has this little space grown!!! In all of 2013, I got 97 views. In August 2014 alone there were 1,410 views of my wee little blog. So, because without you, it would still just be me reading and re-reading my own words, I’m going to do a giveaway. But, because I have a mean streak, I’m not going to tell you what you’ll be receiving. It’s just going to be a box of awesomeness, curated for you, with a healthy dash of yellow, arriving sometime in the next few months. I want to hear about your favorite fall memory. Is it jumping in leaves? Eating an apple right off the tree? Marrying your spouse?
Let me know for a chance to win! Giveaway is now closed – Yvonne (quiltingjetgirl) is the winner! Thank you for sharing all your wonderful memories!
