Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens... Just kidding:)
While many people seem to revel in the gory Halloween festivities, I thrive on the true autumn season of nature and of thankfulness. Gone is the abundance of fake blood, snaggle-toothed jack-o-lanterns and artificial cobwebs. The real fall can finally begin... the one that God dreamed up. And He is the most amazing artist!
November is for expressing a love for acorns, pinecones and falling leaves. A time for sweaters and boots. A season of apples, fireplaces and piping hot drinks designed to keep our fingers warm. The month when we gather with family and friends to count our many blessings.
My house is anxiously hanging on every line of the thermometer's slow downward slide... Ready to wrap its inhabitants in a cozy, inviting hug. The fireplace impatiently perches on its tile edge, ready to cast a warm, fire-y glow.
This time of year, marshmallows and cocoa are always on hand and the coffeepot stands at attention... ready to brew at a moment's notice.

Is this a familiar scene at your house? I'll bet many of you can relate similar feelings.

I'm so excited! I feel like baking something... Happy Fall, ya'll!
