Fall is my favorite season & I really haven't thought about it much yet. Now, I am really in the mood. I'm going to see if I can spot my first colorful leaf today. I actually have a space heater on this morning. It is CHILLY.

I love everything about fall!! The smell, the air, the sweaters, sitting on the front porch swing with a warm cup of something!! We have had a hint of it here in GA. It has cooled off a bit, but I don't want to get too excited because we could still have some hot days! :(
I'm gonna keep your word "crisp" in mind when it does - to remind me that it will not be too long in coming.

I can't believe it's September. We don't get fall here yet, it's at least one more summer of hot! It's kind of exhausting. I plan to head to ID to see my pregnant daughter in October, so I will get to see fall this year. Will ahve to dig in the closet for 'crisp' clothes... K
