    Fall is my favorite season. The obvious(and amazing) favorites are the rain, the leaves changing their colors and all the pumpkin spice goodies. But my all time favorite thing about fall has to be the Thanksgiving holiday. I don’t often get to see my family and Thanksgiving is the one holiday that we all can share together. Sometimes it’s the only day of the year I get to see my loved ones. With fall, comes cozy feelings and there is nothing better than sharing those feelings with the people I love; even if it is just for one day. So while the scented pinecones do make me smile, seeing my family is by far the winner when it comes to my favorite thing about fall. :)

    Oh, anything pumpkin but I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

    Although I am not too big on the rain, I do love Fall. The pumpkin patch is my favorite part. Corn mazes, farm animals, hot cider and tractor rides are the best! Oh, and I do love fall for the boots too.

    Hands down fall is my all time fav! Sooo much to love. The renewed feeling that change is in the air, comfy cozy fall wears, shorter days to get more snuggle time in with the littles, and of course all the delicious yummy fall treats.

  7. sarah September 26, 2014 at #

    for sure the clothes!

  8. Jordan Forman September 26, 2014 at #

    Obviously the best part of Fall is layering your clothes! And all the oranges! And green! It is definitely my favorite season (plus my birthday is in October!). Nothing better than being bundled up, especially on those cool, rainy nights.

    Fall is the best. I love “needing” to build a fire in our wood-buring fireplace in the evenings, putting flannel sheets on all the beds and wearing my slippers in the morning.

    I love all the fall colors as the season and temperature changes.

  11. Terra Claiborne September 26, 2014 at #

    The very best thing about fall is how fresh the air smells after is rains!

  12. Emily woods September 26, 2014 at #

    I love all things fall- the falling leaves, comfy sweaters, football, rainboots, hot cocoa, halloween, going to the pumpkin patch, and sitting by the fire with a good book!

  13. Stephanie September 26, 2014 at #

    Cider and snuggles! We moved here from the sunny south a year ago and have completely fallen head over heels in love with the leaves, the mountain crisp air, and actually using our fireplace. Can’t forget our hiking checklist we made with hikes to check off before the snow hits the mountain area. We are also learning to embrace this rain head on! Fall is surely a season God made for a reason!

    Baking! I love heating up the house with warmth from the oven and the yummy smells :)

  15. gg September 26, 2014 at #

  16. Emily W September 26, 2014 at #

    Fall is my FAVORITE season! I get giddy just thinking about it. I love the falling leaves, comfy sweaters, football, pumpkin patches, fall decorations, rain boots, hot cocoa, & reading a good book by the fireplace!

    There is so much to love about Fall… It’s my favorite season and there is so much to love about it. Leaves changing, the crisp air, all things pumpkin, comfort food but most of all sharing the season with my little family! I love creating traditions with our boys and sharing the joy of Fall together.

    Fall…where do I begin?! There are so many things to love about the fall: splashing in puddles with my kids, making pumpkin donuts (and eating them!), going to the pumpkin patch and picking that perfect one, or two, or three :) And all the while, I am cozy in my sweater and boots with a cup of warm coffee in hand…can I say heaven?!

  19. Emily Peck September 26, 2014 at #

    Oh my goodness, what DON’T I love about fall?! It’s my favorite season….pumpkin everything, changing leaves, getting to wear boots and cozy vests, chilly mornings with hot coffee, moody clouds…I love it all!! This would be so awesome to do!!!

  20. Rebecca September 27, 2014 at #

    Love trips to the pumpkin patch, getting cozy in fall outfits, and all the yummy treats!!

  21. karie September 27, 2014 at #

    football,caramel apples, yellow Labradors, white pumpkins ,and Hunter boots.

  22. Dita September 27, 2014 at #

    I love how cozy fall is! With all the rain outside, I always get cozy inside under blanket. I love having a warm cup of apple cider. I love all the fall decorations! I love the colors of the leaves (though most are evergreen so they don’t turn red)
    In my opinion, fall is just the coziest season!

  23. Stacy September 27, 2014 at #

    I love the sweaters, boots, pumpkin spice candles, and delicious pie. Love following your blog and great ideas you share!

  24. Erin September 27, 2014 at #

    Fall, how I love thee. Let me count the ways… Cozy sweaters. Tall boots. Pumpkin spice lattes. Back to school supplies. Gorgeous foliage. Halloween candy. Football. Moody clouds. I love it all.

  25. Johanna September 27, 2014 at #

    Boots, hats, and this year, big sweaters to hide my preggo belly!

  26. April September 29, 2014 at #

    That crisp feeling in the air on evening walks, mother nature’s amazing colors, cozy fires & pumpkin patch visits!

  27. Ashley Carbonatto September 29, 2014 at #

    Pick just one fav thing for fall?! Boots, crisp air, chunky scarves, plaid – I love it all. But I think what I’ll love most this year will be welcoming our new little girl to our family of boys the first week of November (and not being pregnant anymore!).

  28. Shannon September 29, 2014 at #

    Oh goodness, I wait all year for fall. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love this season. The colors, the crisp air, saturdays spent at the soccer field, homecoming, candles, warm sweaters, everything pumpkin, spider webs glistening with dew…I love it all!

  29. Amy Beth September 29, 2014 at #

    Cozying up by the fire!

    Oh man, fall is by far my favorite time of year! I love foggy mornings, collecting colorful leaves with my girls, baking with pumpkin, and football!!!
