5 Fall Loves

I love all things fall, but these are definitely my top 5 Fall Loves!

The Colors

Hello, my favorite color is yellow, which is a beautiful fall color.  My mom always said it was a difficult task to find yellow swimsuits, bikes, and snow pants.  Lucky for me yellow is now a pretty popular color and I can find lots of clothing in yellow. I feel like my love of fall colors comes from my Grandma Janice.  She was always using browns, oranges, and yellows in her decor. She had a fall birthday, maybe that's why she always chose those colors. 

The Scents

All things cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, vanilla chai, you name it I love it.  There is no better feeling/smell than walking in the house to the smell of an apple crisp.  It is even better if those apples were harvested off of our trees!

Pumpkins and Apples

I love taking little day trips to our favorite apple orchards and pumpkin patches. We have made a trip to Gay Mills every year since we have been married and it has been such a fun tradition to continue with our kids. We love getting big bags of apples and driving through the windy roads gazing at the changing leaves.


I love watching the combines roll in the fields, love the sound of the dryer running and as a kid (and adult) delivering meals to the field has always been at the top of my list. Harvest is a time to work together as a family and to bring in the bounty.


Pumpkins, leaves, burlap, straw, I can find a place for it all. My decorations don't stop at those in the house either, I love to decorate our farm with fall decorations.

What do you love about fall?  Any favorite places that you visit?
