And the giveaway for this week. (Basket not included. They are sorta hard to mail)


Now, back to the original post……


Leaves of gold and red and burnt orange, the smell of celebratory bonfires, the crisp cool air and autumn sun dancing through puffy whites clouds, apple cider and canning applesauce…I LOVE FALL!!

I honor of my love of this season, I am offering a giveaway this week. A basket-in-a-box full of goodies and fun fall things. However, right now I need to get some school done with my boys and run a few errands to get the rest of the fun, fall items. A few of the treats and treasures are already purchased and waiting to cheer someone. The rest?

Still at the store.

So, get on with your day and pop back in later. Hopefully I’ll have an update and a picture posted of said girly, fall give away. In the mean time, be thinking of a fall favorite of yours you can leave a comment on: favorite aspect of fall, autumn memory or yummy, warm-up recipe. All those who leave a comment sharing any “fall favorite” will be placed in the drawing for the giveaway.

Right now, I need to hit the books with my boys. Let’s hope it is a better day than yesterday when my eleven-year old, bored with his science assignment, asked if instead of T and F for ‘true’ and ‘false, he could put RO and BC for ‘right on’ and ‘bull crap’!!!


Autumn Blessings,


  1. I am with you on the weight loss journey–non of us can do this alone. I weigh in once a week with my husband.
    I have weighed the same for several years, but all the excess has gone south! around the middle! I cannot zip some of my jackets I need a group too thanks for being there Judy

  2. Fall is my favorite time of the year! The leaves expressing God’s delight in color – the fresh breezes with a nip in the air –
    My husband, son-n-love, have the same birthday Oct 20,
    My # 1 grandson is on Oct 26, and mine is Oct 30 – it is a full month for us! Of course by the time the boys get through celebrating – mine is a “we love you mom and gramma!” – which is really what I want the most anyway – is their love!
    As the fall leaves fall it is also a reminder that it is time to let some things go – because God has promised he will bring new things in the spring. He is just so serendipitious like that!

  3. I love making smores on the deck over our firepit! It brings the kids together (at 14 and 22 that’s not always easy!) and is a great way to invite neighbors over and re-connect. I, too, love the cool mornings and evenings – so refreshing after a sometimes too hot summer!

  4. I love the colors, flavors, and smells of fall. Most of all, though, I think I love pulling out my cozy pajamas and sleeping under a stack of blankets.

  5. I love that fall is the start of soup season! Soup is just so warm and cozy. I also love the changing colors of the leaves. The most beautiful leaves I’ve seen are on the East Coast. I wish I could get there again in the fall to see them.

  6. I think getting to wear pretty sweaters again is one of my favorite things about fall…cranberry, mauve, dark teal, plum…and also wearing velvet and warm scarves too with jeans and boots….I also love making hot apple spiced cider and letting it simmer on the stove all day….love how it is cool in the mornings and evenings, but so far anyway, has been sunny and crisp during the days in October this year, in the lovely Pacific NW!

  7. Ditto to all of those above….I love fall!!!! …the leaves, the crisp air, family memories and the changing of another season….. Which in turn brings my focus back to God and how he is changing me and others everyday…..sometimes it’s a bold change like the red in maple leaves …. sometimes is like the amber ones… quitely being molded to be more like him…. what a wonderful God that gives us such variety and knows that, as long as we are on this earth, we are have room in our lives for a little change.
