It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Autumn. Fall. The only season to have two names. Why do we call it Fall?



Because the leaves are falling to the ground.



Because I am falling into the back-to-school routines.



Because I am falling into bed at 7:30 because it’s already dark.



Because I am falling in love with God’s gloriously colorful trees.



Because I am falling on dropped apples because I am over-reaching for the perfect one, just up there.



Because I am falling back into my jeans and sweatshirts, my long lost lovelies.



Because I am falling into a depression over the fact that Winter is only 90 days away.


Because I am falling into a deeper depression over the fact that Christmas is only 92 days away.



Fall. I do love ya! Don’t tell the others, but you are my favorite.



*Sorry for the old pictures. I am falling down on the job :-)

I was going to ask if those pictures were from this year already?

We are going to have a rather non-colorful fall this year. Well, I guess yellow and brown are colors, they just look better when you add red and orange. It's been way to dry for anything beautiful.

I did love your pictorial though.

If summer can't last forever, do you think we could just ask fall to? I'm dreading winter, too.

I love fall. It is my favorite season as well. I was going to write and ode to it but I didn't get around to it. Glad you did.

Those other seasons are just in place to give fall a vacation. I'm so thrilled she's back.

Great fall pictures! I found your blog on We Believe Blogs. I am originally from Chicago and currently live in Arizona. Oh, how I miss the changing of the colors. I would love to grab one of the pics and (link back to you of course) and blog about the fall in my "The Things I Miss" blog post. Thanks for sharing.
