falling in love

well, kindred spirits, the autumn season is upon us. you all know what this means.

this is the time of year that abby goes a little nuts. more than usual.


abby loves autumn. the chill in the air. the scents of pecan pie and apple cider warming on the stove. the breeze that makes the leaves dance off of the driveway and into the grass in a charming, fleeting waltz. pumpkin everything. the smell that hits your nose when you first walk outside after the maple leaves start to turn to red, orange, and gold. corduroy jackets. tall brown boots. big sweaters. hot cocoa. fresh apples. cloudy days. starry nights. bonfires. hay rides. roasted marshmallows. flannel shirts. thick blankets. happiness.


(abby laughs. she knows it was actually seventy five degrees today where she lives. she wants the chill in the air to come back)


In honor of October………



fall 1

Does it remind anyone of else of what they imagined Quebec to look like? Such loveliness.



fall 2



fall 3

There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir;

We must rise and follow her

When from every hill of flame

She calls and calls each vagabond by name

A Vagabond Song, Bliss Carman

  1. Beautiful. Absolutely perfect. I may complain about the nasty fall rains, or the dreariness, but I love this season as well. “sets the gypsy blood astir . . . calls each vagabond by name.” How well put. That describes exactly how I feel in cold autumn weather. Do you like winter?
    (You gave me a start with the title! 🙂


    1. Thank you! I love winter! It gets pretty cold up here where I live…we moved here in the middle of February four and a half years ago and the cold was numbing. Not sharp or biting, beyond that. You’d stand outside for a minute and feel like you were dead on the outside. But yes, I love winter! It and autumn are usually at a tie for my favorite season. Especially because of Christmas 🙂


      1. Yep, it’s like that where I live. I get cold very quickly, but I love, love, love the cold – it’s so invigorating. You’re right, though. It does feel like you’re dead on the outside. But then you get to go have hot cocoa, or tea! And there’s nothing prettier than fresh-fallen snow, is there?
