The Colors of Autumn

If I were to ask people what their favorite time of year is, many say summer. They love going to the beach, not wearing constricting clothing, eating al fresco, water sports, etc. When I told someone a couple of years ago that my favorite season is autumn, she was shocked and told me fall is like the time of death and rot. I replied that I NEVER thought of it that way. For me, it’s about a time of family, and comfort.

I celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Advent, so it’s joyous for me. I love driving under canopies of vibrant colors that make me blissful! My house backs a wooded area treating my eyes to beautiful tones of yellows, oranges and reds of the deciduous trees with splashes of contrast from the evergreens.

I love carving pumpkins with my kids, and baking apple pies for them since they perfume the house with the smell of cinnamon.

The smell of a Thanksgiving meal, which for me is the ultimate of comfort food, triggers the feeling of love, knowing my entire family will join me for the day! I think this person finally understood why I love autumn so much, and actually changed her thoughts about the season.
