  7. I live in southwest Florida so fall for us is a bit different. We look forward to opening our windows and sliders to let in the fresh, dry and cooler air. This is also when we plant our annual flowers which is so exciting. Here, there are no leaves to rake (yay!) and we anticipate a delightful winter. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That crisp feeling in the air...I guess it is due to lower humidity. I love it. Fall activities like harvesting the garden, making jam and salsa. Planning for Thanksgiving...so many more lovely fall things!

There so many more things I love about Fall; corn mazes, orange and yellow mums, pumpkins, Thanksgiving,knowing Christmas is just around the corner and everyone seems just a little more nicer. I don't think I could just pick 3!

  34. 3 things I love about fall . . . hmm. Well, I love the changing of the seasons, the leaves changing colors are absolutely beautiful, and I love Thanksgiving (and not just because of the great food). I think that's only 2 things, so number 3 is: the chance to slow down. Time seems to slow, days don't rush by as quickly and there's more time to focus on what really matters instead of wondering where you're supposed to be next. :)

  64. Since I moved to KY last year, I LOVE fall! The cool daytime air, frosty evening air, changing of the leaves falling to the ground and crunching underneath my feet, God's beauty painted all around! Words do not do justice to being able to experience all four seasons, especially fall! (I came from S.E. Alabama where there are semi-seasons - hot, warm, and some winter.)

I also enjoy the the ability to lay in my hammock and not melt through the strings.

  88. It's hard to narrow down to three just what I love about fall. I really enjoy the cooler temperatures that are perfect for bonfires, and roasting hotdogs and marshmallows, taking long moonlit walks with the one you love; watching the local marching bands compete and area football games. But it's the beautiful colors of the leaves and seasonal flowers that bless me the most...of course all the apple and pumpkin favorites being more available is also pretty great ;)

  92. My favorite thing about fall are the memories of growing up in mid-west;not so favorite-raking the leaves (repeatedly, because we jumped in them too!), but "back-in-the-day" we burned them, warmed ourselves and sometimes roasted marshmallows.

  105. Oh, fall is my favorite, too! There's just something in the air during that time of year that makes me just feel good. For one, I love it because it's my anniversary (October 16th) and the hubby and I try to get away and do something fun. The local fair also comes to town, and we've been going as a family since we were first married...so fun! I also love wearing my scarves and cooler weather wear. I could name a lot, but my last one...going on drives and just looking at the leaves that are changing. The hubby and I love to do that : ). Ok...now I'm ready for fall! Blessings to you~Stacey

    ReplyDelete
  106. I LOVE fall! It's my favorite season.

    Orange is my favorite color! So obviously, fall makes me happy because orange is EVERYWHERE.

    I love when the heat and humidity start to break and you can feel the air turn just a little bit crisp. It's not cold yet, but there's such a relief when the heat lifts and the fall breezes start.

    I love BOOTS. Fall comes and I always break out my boots and assess what kind of new boots I need. Maybe an old pair is getting worn and I need to replace the style, or maybe I'll get something totally different. Tall boots, booties, black ones, brown ones, flat boots, heels, stiletto heels, chunky heels...

  119. Can't help but love the colors - the maples and popples interspersed dark green white pine, and a few weeks later, the red oaks in their deep burgundy

    Frost early in the morning turning everything white and crunchy, with the scent of woodsmoke pervading the air

    The first snow! Not that it sticks, most of the time, but it livens up October after the leaves are gone

    I love walking along, fallen leaves crunching underfoot, a cooler waft of air against your face, and enjoying the colours. I love to see the fields with their bounty taken up, and neat brown rows left in their place. I love seeing pumpkins and apples, and squash at the roadside stands. I love fall.

  139. I love the crunch of leaves when you walk down the sidewalk, I love the nip in the air that makes me bring out all my favorite jackets, and I love having an excuse to drink hot apple cider or chocolate with little marshmallows.

  140. I love fall, the best time of year in my opinion! The weather, colors, and everything else! Plus, I think middle Tennessee is the prettiest in the fall!!

  141. When I was a child I loved Fall because of the beautiful colors of the autumn leaves, picking apples and making pies and apple butter with my mother, and harvesting and canning the vegetables that we worked hard to grow all summer. Now that I'm a retired teacher and live in South Florida, I love Fall because we're reaching the end of hurricane season, we can plant our winter vegetable garden, and we enjoy Florida avocados and start getting into citrus season. But I still love those fresh apples from up North!

  142. Fall has always been such a nostalgic feel for me. It just has that wonderful breeze coming in of the winter with the changing of everything in the air. The wind itself changes, the leaves change, and the mood changes. It is a comfortable time of year. One you want to just sit back and "reminisce in the moment with" as you watch it go by. mmmmm :)

  157. Since, I live in Florida, falls runs into summer for us...but I have to say I don't mind, because I love the extended fishing time, never having to put away my sandals and wearing shorts year round! :)

  158. Fall is the time of year I love most. Love the colors of fall looking out the window at God's masterpiece. Fall has a crisp type smell to it. Very refreshing. Time a year I make pumpkin rolls . I enjoy going out and picking pumpkins out of a garden and then coming home cooking them up to make fresh rolls and cakes and of course pies. October is also my birth month which is in the fall,
    Blessings

    Fall is my absolute favorite season by far. I love the briskness of the wind, the wonderful palette of colors on the trees and bushes and I love all of the fun harvest activities.

    ReplyDelete
  162. #1: I love Autumn, especially the refreshingly cool weather married with the vibrant color of the swiftly descending leaves. I must confess that I still make leaf piles and jump in them...haha..I love the crunch of the fallen leaves as I pass through them and the smell of Autumn in the air. It is my favorite season of all.

    #2: Crafts shows. There are several annual craft sales(in November) in our area that we have been going to since I was quite small. They are called: The Christmas Present, Home for the Holidays, & Once Upon A Christmas. While some are held at local businesses and churches, others are in peoples homes. You go from each house/business/church to another. There are usually free refreshments(many homemade cookies![and mulled cider]) and food for sale at every stop. Churches serve meals(that are amazing[homemade soup +]) and you hear Christmas music everywhere you go(that's my favorite part). Each place has a Christmasy name and my favorite is called A Log Cabin Christmas(the lady who hosts it has been involved in The Christmas Present for 20 yrs.!).You can buy Musser apples there too(children receive a free one..apparently I am still a child..;)). After going to these, you know that Christmas is really coming soon. Then we start watching all of our Christmas movies after that.. We go to many of these every year with one of my Mom's good friends and it is not the same when we go without her. However, there is another Craft show that comes before these(in October). It is called The Autumn Leaf Festival and is held in downtown Clarion, PA where craft vendors can be seen almost all the way down Main Street. But, that's not all because then you have rides, an art show(that my brother is entered in), concession stands, a parade, and many other activities. It is a much bigger affair than the other craft sales since Clarion is a university town...:) These are some of my favorite memories..:)

    #3: Apple cider, pumpkin pie, and a free Thanksgiving dinner held at Clarion's County Seat Restaurant(we don't really have family that we can get together with...Their problem...Much of my Mom's family is unsaved and shuns us quite a bit.:\..However, this new tradition we started is actually been rather special to us and we love it!)
    What about you?
    Tamera, thank you for the giveaway opportunity. I have been so amazingly blessed by your wonderful books. They are among some of my especial favorites.

  172. I love the colors of Fall, reflecting on God's beautiful work in his world. I think I relish the slowing pace, looking forward to winter and time for indoor activities. More time for reading and writing! Finally, I enjoy all the fruits and berries that have been harvested from summer crops.

  174. Tammy, this sounds like a fun giveaway.

    My favorite thing about fall (when we get the cooler temps here in north Texas) is pulling out my sweaters and hoodies. Curling up with a blanket and good book in my glider chair is another sweet thing about autumn. The third thing I enjoy is hot chocolate.

    Blessings,
    Andrea

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win! :)

  176. I have to agree with everyone else that the top item is the cooler temps. Now that my kids have all grown up it gets a little more difficult. While they were all still at home my second item would have been the quiet house while they were back in school. Now I have to say the fall colors comes in second. Then I always have to hope that my team makes it to the post-season for baseball.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Fall in TX means I can sit on my patio and read after a bike ride in the slightly cool air...and THINK about the fall colors somewhere north of here. Love your books!

    ReplyDelete
  178. No more hot summer weather...less hot flashes...cooler weather to cool my continuing hot flashes. :-) Honestly, I cannot wait for this heat to go away. It is killing me! Late Fall, early Winter has to be my favorite time of year.

    The sound and sight of crisp leaves piling up and blowing around. The Reformation Day celebration at church in October. The chill that enters the air, I love Fall/Winter clothing...long skirts, pashminas, cute tailored jackets...

    ReplyDelete
  180. I love the crisp leaves in brilliant colors, both on the trees and then as they fall--they are also so fun to scoop into a big pile and then jump in them! WHEE! I also LOVE the smell of hot spiced cider & the taste of it going down, is divine! Add to that ANY hot soup or stew (Mmm!) and ANYTHING pumpkin (except coffee--don't like coffee anything!) Oh, and a nice smelling burning candle and a fire in the fireplace, make for a wonderful fall evening, while sipping cider and watching a good Hallmark movie--THAT is MY idea of a wonderful way to spend a fall evening/day!
    Either that, or snuggling up with a great book, like one of yours! I just need to win some! ;-)

  181. I love fall. Labor Day I will put away all my summer decorations and get out all the fall decorations. I love the rich hues of browns and orange in my home in the fall. I love long walks in the woods with leaves crunching under by boots. I love the smell of apples, pumpkin, cinnamon & cloves as they bake in the oven for fall desserts.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Fall is changing colors on the leaves, getting cooler weather but not cold. Clementines come back in season.
