Autumn is on it's Way!!

You wouldn't know it today due to the heat we experienced in Charlotte  (100 degrees) but there are signs that Autumn is on its way!  I do enjoy this time of year.  Not only for the cooler weather but the leaves changing, apples are abundant, pumpkins start arriving at Farmer's Markets, etc., etc.  This weekend I made the first apple crisp of the season!  I love the smell of cinnamon wafting through the house while the crisp cooks in the oven.  I will have to get some mums for the urns out front soon.  I sprayed the urns a shiny black this spring, so the mums will look beautiful in them.  The squirrels have also been gathering nuts for their winter storage.

I wish we really had an autumn in the South! We have summer until November. :) Love your new header--as always!

Beautiful header. I wait until Oct 1 to get my mums and pumpkins. They last through Thanksgiving that way.

I am enjoying every last moment of summer.

I'm off on my holidays next week but when I return I'm embracing Autumn. It's my favourite season and can't wait to decorate for Halloween this year.

I LOVE apple crisp and I love Fall. We're still in summer weather in WI but I expect that to change soon.

Howdy neighbor. I love your Fall colors on your blog. I was one of those wishing it was autumn already but then I talked myself into just enjoying the summer we have left. Check out my plans for the Fall.

Mmmmm.... I love apple crisp! 100 degrees? Yikes! And here I was complaining about our 90 degrees.

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!
