i was reading one of my favorite blogs this morning at the inspired room and i just completely love melissa's challenge to create our own list of twenty little things to treasure in autumn. being as how this is my absolute favorite time of the year, and that we've been having wonderfully crisp weather (very unseasonal for nc!) the past few days, i was completely inspired to join the fun so here goes...
twenty little things to treasure in autumn:
  1. small-town high school football games
  2. soups and chili with homemade bread
  3. sweaters, scarves, tights, and peacoats - fall is my favorite time to get dressed!
  4. starbucks pumpkin spice lattes (wish they sold these year-round!)
  5. baked and mashed butternut squash with butter and brown sugar
  6. pumpkin, cinnamon, apple scented candles
  7. daylight savings time (love the bright early mornings!)
  8. snuggling up with a cozy blanket and autumn issues of all my favorite magazines
  9. following the runway shows at fashion week
  10. making popcorn balls
  11. new episodes of all my favorite shows
  12. eating handfulls of candy corn
  13. showers of leaves in the path of my car
  14. seeing my breath for the first time of the season
  15. carving pumpkins
  16. drinking red wine with friends in front of a fire
  17. smashing crunchy leaves on a long walk
  18. corn mazes and hayrides
  19. golden light as the sun sets
  20. visiting the farmers market to pick pumpkins, buy apples, cider, and fresh doughnuts

tomorrow is the autumnal equinox so pick something from the list and celebrate fall! :o)
