Fall...it's just around the corner.

 I'm so glad, aren't you?  It's my favorite season of the year...I love the musty smell of the leaves, especially on a rainy morning.  I love the first morning you walk out the door, and there's a little "bite" in the air.  I love the bunches of mums I see planted in peoples yards blooming to beat the band. I love the reds, oranges, golds, and yellows of fall.
 I love the first pot of chili, the first fire in the fireplace, and the extra burst of energy that makes me want to be more productive.(cuz I'm not melting the minute I step out the door)  I love thinking about cool weather plants, and crock pot recipes.

My leaves are a poor example of the beauty of God's  painted leaves in the fall. But it's fun to try.  I'm not sure what our leaves will look like this year due to the hot, DRY, summer.  They'll probably just turn brown and turn loose.  But that doesn't keep us from  imagining wonderful colors.  So, keep smiling, and baking...fall will soon be here.  We'll be able to open the windows and let the heat from our ovens(that are making wonderful cookie creations) escape out into the cooler air.


  1. I couldn't agree with you more! Fall is my favorite time of the year, too, and your blog about it got me right in the fall mood. Your fall platters are gorgeous and I love the sprinkles of the acorn kisses. But you're wrong on one thing - your leaves are a PERFECT example of the beautiful talent God gave YOU!!
    And thanks for such a feel-good post to read. :) My heart's ready for the changing of the seasons!

  2. Beautiful!!!! The only way I will get to see much fall color is to find some beautiful cookies like you made. I'm going to keep coming back to this post and just stare at your cookies! Thank you for sharing your talents and gifts.
