I think I treasure so many of the same things!!!! I love fall! The way the air smells is such a delight after the hot summer months. This has been a busy weekend for me. Next weekend I hope to start "falling" up my home!

Enjoy your day.

take care,

Many of the things I treasure in Autumn you treasure too...Your list could be my list!
It's starting to get colder here in Seattle and all the trees are turning colors-Just beautiful.
Have a blessed Sunday Darlene,

I think you covered the best ones. I do love some Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, so I think I'd add that to my list.

Hope your week gets off to a good start.

Hi Darlene

For not being a fall person I think there are so many things you've listed that I treasure also. I love having the window open in the bedroom at night, feeling the crisper air, and snuggling in flannel sheets

Hope you've had a nice day.

Great list! I posted my 6 random things....thanks for thinking of me. I love Thanksgiving is like my own personal holiday...I start planning the menu weeks in advance...even those it doesn't change much from year to year...I just love good ol' turkey day!

Smiles ~ Ramona

Oh that all sounds wonderful to me!! Especially the word "flannel"!! I can't wait to bring out the long sleeved shirts!
