20 Things I Treasure in Autumn

Without a doubt Autumn is my favorite season. Our lives slow down and we as a family find time to do more things together. Something about the cool crisp air in of itself makes me think of home.

20 Things I Treasure in Autumn

1. Highschool Football Games
2. Homemade chili and cinnamon rolls.
3. Hayrack Rides.
4. Bonfires for us to roast marshmallows on.
5. Fresh apple pie with a cup of hot coffee on the back porch.
6. Pumpkins on the porch.
7. The changing of the leaves.
8. A glass of spiced wine.
9. Wrapping up in a nice flannel blanket, sitting in my rocker and reading.
10. BOOTS and long skirts!
11. Lanterns lit to read by.
12. Pumpkin Patches!
13. Going to a corn maze.
14. Baking cookies with the kids.
15. Having a Dutch Blitz tournament on a Sunday night with the kids.

That mum planter is so pretty. I love the idea of having warm apple pie and hot coffee on the back porch. Perhaps I can translate that into a deck activity.
