Dreaming of Fall...

Ok, I admit that some people don't want to read this post but I'm not a summer person.  I don't like to swim and hate the hot weather. Despite this I will put my best effort into spending the last two weeks with my kids doing summer stuff. 

Here's some things I'm looking forward to:

Decorating for FaLL!!! 

My garden is really growing and I am hopeful my lil' baby boo pumpkins and giant orange ones will come in handy this year.

I love decorating the porch and front areas of my home.

I love these bumpy, grayish green and white gourds.

Visits to the orchard

Dining room

burning yummy candles and shhh...I'm already trying out some new fall scents

Baked Granny Smith and McIntosh apples topped with vanilla crumble, cinnamon and nutmeg.  It's my new favorite!  The little ones are on sale right now too!

Checking out these amazing works of art by God, in my backyard!

and last but not least BaKiNG!


I will definately be making these again this year!

Enjoy the rest of your summer but remember FaLL is almost here!



  1. I will hang on to summer as long as I can... for sure and for certain.. BUT.. I do love Fall. The beautiful colors, cooler temps.. but NOT cold. (wink) Lots of fun decorating, yummy harvest foods, festivals & the smells... mmm.. Autumn does smell good. I love the smell of fallen leaves in the sun. Yes..I smell them.. LOL!

  2. Hi! Those muffins look delicious. My daughter is a pumpkin fiend and my husband loves butterscotch. Why I could make them both happy with just one thing. I think this is going on my to make list.

    Thanks for buzzin' on over and becoming a follower. I'm not quite ready for fall because fall is crazy busy! School carnivals, county fair, birthdays, football games, etc. I'm enjoying the quiet before the stampede of events. But I do love fall!
