Change Is In the Air!



(Photo via pinterest.com)

Today while I was driving home from my acupunture appointment I could see true signs that Autumn isn't too far away.  I actually really love the Autumn.  I love the crisp air, the smell of wood smoke in the air, apple crisp, pumpkins, knitting, etc.  I love to bake during the time of year.  Hopefully the leaves will be beautiful this year.  We have had so much rain, so the leaves should be more colors than yellow.  This time of year I love to drink hot tea after dinner.  That reminds me, this weekend I will have to have John bring out the firepit so we can have some nice toasty fires in the backyard.

Oh the signs are showing here already. I have a maple tree in my yard and it is starting to shed some yellow leaves. I cannot wait for Fall here in Kansas. I was here a few years ago during the season and it was spectacular! Miss you, girlie!

Oh Sherri! I love autumn too! There's not one sign of it here but I love hearing that it's happening elsewhere.;) Gives me hope that the leaves will change here soon. We're working on our backyard right now and considering having an outdoor fireplace created with a sitting area. Doesn't that sound dreamy?? So excited! Lori

Funny... even here in Hawaii my husband was commenting that the sun was coming up later and later.

I love the fall too. We had such a wet summer, and now the sun has been shining all week, I want to hold on to summer a little bit longer.

Ooooo! I want to come and drink tea around the fire pit with you! The western part of the state is so pretty. We don't get any leaf color here. Too many pine trees. Poo. :(

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
