Hello Autumn!!

Fall has arrived here in the Mitten! This typically means cooler temps, crackling leaves, and the count down to my two favorite holidays ... Hallowe'en and Thanksgiving!

Five things I love about Fall (in no particular order):
  • Orange (What's not to love about this color? It always makes me smile.)
  • Kicking through the fallen leaves as I walk through my little neighborhood and town, and hearing them crunch and scatter.
  • Delicious comfort foods like pumpkin and apple pies, breads, and caramel apples.
  • Classic "scary" movies at our local vintage movie theatre. (Can hardly wait to see The Ghost and Mr. Chicken!)
  • Football (Who can resist the boys of fall? Especially when they look like this. Mmm-hmmm.)

Ten years

There are many people with more eloquent words, but one thing is certain ... September 11, 2001 shook our country to its very core.

America. The land that I love. Heal our broken hearts. Restore our strength and hope.

Bless our troops and bring them home soon. Bless our President. Bless our nation.

Let this Patriot's Day be one of peaceful remembrance and healing.
