Wanting to Know you Wens.




lovies, happy first day of my favourite season!!! don't you love fall? i will never forget when i visited this time last  year and saw all the fall leaves cover the land like a quilt. Autumn in VA is MAGICAL.

something this Texas girl wasn't used to seeing.

cheers to wearing scarves, leggings, and boots. to oversized sweaters {or wearing his sweaters}. to football! cheers to Pumpkin Spice at Starbucks. cheers to getting into the holiday spirit.

Faiza said...

for me the fall is all about the colours everywhere. the deep purples, crimson leaves, oranges and yellows with some remaining splashes of green. gorgeous!

Karleen said...

I love fall too! I love warm days with crisp cool nights, and to watch the leaves turn colors then fall to ground leaving cruchy leafs to stomp on, football, Halloween, boots, perfect running weather, Cider Mills, pumpkins...
Can't wait to hear about the next virtual date!

I've lived in San Diego all of my life and we moved to Hemet, CA only a year ago, it's only 1 1/2 hrs drive but 110 plus weather... oh my!

In this valley I've learned to appreciate the colder weather I also love the falling leaves! Me and my kids have a picture taking project that will last a year! http://moncy3.blogspot.com/2010/09/seasons-change-week-2.html Have a good Autumn season!

i like the crispness in the air come autumn... we dont get much of an aumtumn in AZ but the weather does cool down and there is just something in the air....maybe excitement for the things coming...i am not sure...
but autumn also means the state fair is coming... and cool weather... SO stoked for cooler weather... haha

Tiffany said...

I used to say that Winter was my favorite season...but the older I get the more I love FALL!!! I can't wait for cool days and COLD nights!! Cool weather is made for snuggling with your lover!!

Miss you!

Karina said...

Yay! It's the first day of fall ; D. One of our favorite seasons.. For two reasons - First we live right around the corner from Central Park and we get to walk through the every day and see all the beautiful colors of the leaves, it looks so colorful - and Miguelito loves jumping in the leaves. Second - Its just one season before Winter! Let it snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! And Christmas is just so Beautiful - all the colors and happiness and excitement ; D

Erin said...

Oh, it's so many things. First... the trees! I love all the changing colours- the reds and golds and rusts. I am constantly stopping in my tracks, digging out my camera and taking another photo of yet another tree!
Second... the clothes. I love tights and skirts, scarves and cardigans. And not yet having to wear a big winter coat or boots.
Third... Starbucks, baby! I love that pumpkin spice latte oh-so-much!
Finally... the autumn holidays. We have Thanksgiving coming up in just a few weeks and after that, Halloween! The boys are wild for it. I love the pumpkins on the doorsteps, the kids' excitement about costumes and parties and jack o'lanterns.
Finally... after fall comes winter and you know what that means! CHRISTMAS!!!

Looking forward to our virtual date next week.... xoxoxoxox

Hmmmm, I really like the cozy snuggle sweater weather, but before it gets cold enough to snow/ice. I kind of hate snow. Blasphemy, I know.

Erin said...

Autumn is absolutely my favorite season; I love everything about it! :-) I love drinking hot tea in the evenings; opening up all of the windows in my apartment and then snuggling up under a blanket with my book; watching the leaves change; how the mountain air smells when the temps start to drop; Fall seems to be the perfect season for enjoying a glass of red wine with dinner; and of course, cardigans...I live in cardigans!

i've been missing your virtual dates:))) and autumn is my favorite time of year.. i love the football, the rain jackets (hello, oregon), the warm chai tea, the crunchy leaves (i will go OUT OF MY WAY to step on them), the scarves, and the boots & thick socks. love love love.

Medical Librarian said...

Autumn is my favorite, too. College football, trips to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard, Halloween and Thanksgiving, definitely the Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks, the changing colors of the leaves, cooler weather, and bonfires with roasted marshmallows. Sigh.

Claire Kiefer said...

My favorite thing about fall is the anticipation of the Christmas season. I LOVE when it gets chilly outside and Union Square in SF puts up the big Christmas tree, and you can walk around in scarves and hear Christmas music and shop for wonderful little gifts. :) I also love Thanksgiving, YUM.

I miss the bright changing colors of the leaves in Georgia. We don't get that in California. The weather is pretty much perfect all year round, but we have to sacrifice rainbow-colored leaves and thunderstorms.

Shauna said...

I LOVE FALL!!!! Everything about it! The smell, the crisp air, everything!! Im so ready to wear sweaters and boots!!

Shell said...

Yes! Cheers to this lovely cuddle weather! I love Autumn, Winter has to be my favorite lover.

i LOVE fall! i just booked a trip home next month to get a little dose of it. florida girls do not see fall like weather for a few more months...but my scarves and leggings will be waiting for the first sign of that lovely crisp weather :)

Maddy said...

my favorite thing is pumpkin spice lattes. and the slight (and so subtle) change in temperature. we live in Florida so we don't get much, but for us it's drastic!

Stephanie said...

I love, love, love Fall!! Even though it seems to last only like a week in Texas. :( I love cool weather, fallen leaves, Halloween, good scary movies in the theaters! Costumes, coffee, cold nights with the window cracked open and the blow dryer blowing on my feet while reading a good book :D LOVE IT!

heather yalin said...

We're on our way into spring! Yay! I'm hoping it actually turns warm here! :) But I do so love the crisp autumn air and colors... especially, when I get a break from the perpetual winters around there!

Phoenix Peacock said...

I miss VA fall so much... all the different colors! Here in CO there aren't as many trees, but there is a spectacular week or two where all the aspens are on FIRE, bright yellow. It is breathtaking. But I still miss all the colors of VA.

MArisa said...

Fall is by far my favorite... I would love to live in a place where it was Fall all time. I love the crisp air, the leaves cahnging colors, the foggy/overcast days. I really love it all.

Lauryn said...

Ah, I LOVE Fall with every fiber of my being. The smells, the foods, the holidays, the gorgeous color, the temperature, the clothing. Everything is wonderful this time of year.

angelina la dawn said...

fall is absolutely my favorite. because i love jackets and wearing shoes without socks {like clogs and cute mary-janes.} oh yeah, it's beautiful outside, too.

carmar76 said...

Oh, sweaters & hot chocolate & starbucks coffees & a whole buncha blankets on the bed! : )

Lauren Nicole said...

AUTUMN is the best season ever, with winter as a close second. lovelovelove. everything about it is what i love. the leaves, the smells, the clothes, the food, the feelings you get, just EVERYTHING. stinks that florida doesn't get the great colors of the leaves, just stinks. oh well. maybe soon i'll see some fall colors in nature, let's hope...
