Fall Is My Favorite Season

WOW, It's hard to believe it's October already.
Where does the time go?
I don't know if it's just me getting older, or if time really is speeding up.
Fall is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons.

I think of when I was young growing up, and Fall meant it was time for the County Fair. My brother and I saved up all year to be able to go. I sold bottles (this was when bottles were refundable), I babysat, I cleaned yards, and when the fair came I was ready.

As I got older my children carried on the tradition. I remember the first time I went back to the fair after I was grown. It use to look so big, and I wondered why it was so small now, but my kids loved it as much as I use to.
In actuality it hadn't changed.. I had.

Fall brings back memories of candy apples, cotton candy, and of course Halloween.

I love to take walks in the Fall, and see all the leaves changing on the trees. Such  pretty colors of oranges and yellows.
A thought came to me that, Fall is when I realized that not all death is ugly. It might sound strange, but think about it.
The leaves are dying, but the colors are gorgeous during the process, and you know when Spring starts all the new leaves will start to bud, and there will be new birth.

Fall gives me renewed energy, because the weather is perfect. It's not too hot nor too cold.. It usually is a perfect temperature, cool breezes, with the night being a little chilly.
At night it makes me want to snuggle with a soft warm blanket, and cocoa. Unfortunately, Fall doesn't last long enough. 
So I plan to enjoy it while it's here...
