Even though I often think summer is my favorite season of all, I do love fall! We're really having some lovely fall weather with cool temps in the morning and warming up nicely during the day with brilliant blue skies -- just incredibly nice weather. And I love fall because the humidity is going down a bit and not affecting my hair so much -- I have way too many bad hair days in the summer! And I love that the grass is not growing much, so I don't have to mow so often. I like mowing as much as the next person, but I am getting a bit weary of it this year since Mr. Tennis was laid up and all the yard work landed squarely on my shoulders. Back to everything I love about fall --and I love pumpkins and sweaters and gourds and smore's and, of course, Halloween candy -- but you all knew that already, didn't you! I love Homecoming parades and football games. I love wearing knee-high socks again and throwing out the old ratty flip-flops. I love spending time going to the zoo or pumpkin patch with The Hubs and Maddy. I love that she is thinking about her Christmas and birthday lists already. And I love that I finally figured out how to do a collage -- yay me!! So even though I know that after fall comes nasty old winter, I am enjoying every second of the cooler weather and shorter days, aren't you?!
