AUTUMN'S GLORY

This glorious time of the year is, by far, my favorite. The warm vibrant colors, the crisp air, the crunch of a tart apple, cozy sweaters, warm drinks, a hearty soup simmering on the stove and caramels in a ironstone bowl on my kitchen counter.
Yep---whats not to love? For me, Autumn passes by way too quickly. I wish it would slow down so I can enjoy it longer.
I wish for more time...
to take more walks and feel the crunch of the leaves under my feet. To have more fires in our outdoor hearth on the patio to roast more marshmallows. Could I have more time to stand under the trees and have the leaves fall around me? A little longer to hear more laughter as the kids chase each other with arm loads of leaves?
Magic. Pure magic.

Soon, the color will be gone and the hustle and bustle of the holidays will begin.

But, for now, I will relish in the beauty of what every golden day brings to me...

in my garden...
my little corner of the world.





I hope you are all enjoying what this time of the year has to offer.

It is glorious indeed!

I love you Honey,
