Bring on Fall!!

Okay, so we are now well into September. What was the weather like in Louisville today?

94 degrees.

Since it hasn't really cooled off at all,  I am going to post some fall pictures from last year for a little inspiration.

The good news is, I have heard rumors we are starting to get some Libby's Pumpkin in this area...now I just need to go out and find some!

I mentioned some of my favorite things about fall here...I just love the changing colors, the crunch of leaves beneath my feet,  the cool, crisp weather that only requires a light sweater, Halloween decorations, hayrides, bonfires, hot coffee, sitting by the fireplace and the smell of the wood burning, all things pumpkin...and apple...and the cinnamon-y spicy flavors of apple crisp, pumpkin pie and spiced cider. I love homemade soups, chili, warm oatmeal and the other cool weather comfort foods. I also really want to set aside time to carve pumpkins for Halloween this year...and toast up the pumpkin seeds!

For some reason, fall gives me the feeling of a fresh beginning...perhaps because of all those years that fall marked the beginning of a new school year? At any rate, it is a good time for me to re-commit to my health goals and make some changes for the better!

What are you looking forward to during the fall season?


  1. It's way too hot - I ordered my first pumpkin spice latte today and had to order it iced! How sad is that?

    Sarah tipped me off on where to find some pumpkin too - luckily, my husband found some while he was out today and brought home two big cans! When I see some I will definitely be stocking up.

    Fall is my favorite season so there is so much to look forward to: sweatshirts, attending a couple of football games, apple cider,changing leaves, pumpkin picking at Huber's, eating more soup, hiking at Jefferson Memorial and when we go on a mini vacation to NC, pumpkin beer, oatmeal, and well, any food that involves pumpkin!

    This is the longest comment ever - I'm just really excited about fall (if it ever gets here!) What are you excited about?

  2. I edited my post to add some of the fall things I am excited about...I guess that makes sense if I am going to ask the question! Haha...

    I love going to Huber's, too :)

  3. Yes, go get the pumpkin! It will at least sort of make it seem like Fall while we sweat our butts off, haha. :)

  4. I also love all the fall flavors and snuggling under my blanket while watching TV in front of the fireplace (even if it is an electric one--I love it!). My coffee tastes better, too, in the cool weather!
