Fall, How do I Love Thee...Let me Count the Ways! And a giveaway!

Confession, I go into the fall season kicking and screaming, but once I get there I remember why I love this season so much. So let's commence with my counting the ways I love fall.

1. I married the love of my life in the early fall. As a matter of fact we just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary.

2. I do so love all of the wonderful fall foliage we get to admire here in the northeastern part of the United States.

3. As a parent I would rejoice in the sound of the school bus engine chugging up our dirt road signaling the start of the new school year.

4. I find that my muse returns from it's own summer vacation gracing me with newfound story ideas and quirky characters. Right now I'm working on a brand new book, the second in my Pinkerton, historical romance series. I'm bringing the characters of Agent Lily Handland and Adirondack Great Camp owner Owen Murphy to life. My fingers are tingling in excitement!  I really do love writing during the fall months.

5. And did I mention it's apple season!!!! And pumpkin picking time!!!! Which means visits to our favorite farm stand to buy those freshly picked from the tree apples. Macs are the ones I go for. Another fall confession I only buy my apples from my childhood farm stand, which is now a two hour drive from where I live. But so worth the effort and I get to enjoy those fall colors while I'm driving!

So tell me what are some of the favorite things you love about fall? One of my lucky commenters will be chosen to win a giveaway of one book from my best selling Women of Surprise series.

  1. I love the changing colors of the leaves on the mountains surrounding me. I love picking apples and finishing up the canning seasons, seeing all my harvest in jars. Have a blessed day.

    1. Lucy, I used to can a lot when my kids were little. My favorite thing to make were my bread and butter pickles.

  2. I LOVE the smell of fall! Whether it's the smell of the foliage, the fresh crisp breeze or even smoke from fires (in fireplaces, in bonfires), I LOVE them all. Of course, then fall also has the awesome aromas from the fall foods.

    1. and you live in a wonderful place to see fall. The Finger Lake region is one of the best spots for fall color!
