Look Ma Punkin!

I love the fall.

Times seem simpler, the colors warmer, the weather cooler. The changing of leaves, the shorter days, the comforting aromas.

I love fall. And I love pumpkins. Perhaps it because for as long as I can remember, my mother called me her "pumpkin" or because they remind me of Jack (Jack-O-Lanterns). Either way, I look forward to going to pick pumpkins every year- from the pumpkin patch or the local church. It makes me feel like a kid again. Although, I do have to say, we never had pumpkins growing up and we surely didn't go to the pumpkin patch for the fun of it. It's an adult pleasure for me.

Here are pictures of our most recent outing to the pumpkin patch. I hope they bring you joy.

Mmmm, I love fall too. I think it's my favorite season. The leaves here have started turning and it's so beautiful--I've got to get out and take some pictures. Unfortunately it's also too cold here that I just want to stay inside bundled up! :-)

The last pic made me laugh too!
