    Okay so I LOVE autumn sooooo much!! Anyone else?

    First of all its always back to school, and although I'm not going back to school this September I'm still really excited about it. Then shortly after that its the Canadian Thanksgiving, a few weeks later Halloween...then I'm lucky because both mine and Renah's birthday's are in November (14th and the 16th), then just a short time later its Christmas!!!

    I'm a total nerd, and in preparation for September first coming in just a few short days, I went out and bought a bunch of leaves, pumpkins/squash, scented candles in fall scents like pumpkin, pine, apples, pears, vanilla, cinnamon, etc, cinnamon sticks, etc to decorate my house with!! I figure if I can't get excited for school I might as well get excited for autumn in general.

    Oh, and the leaves...I live in pretty much maple tree central, its so lovely.

    Okay so that ends my babbling about how much I love autumn, anyone else? haha

    I love that it's football season, plus all the fall colors (new clothes for Hannah :lol:), Halloween and of course Thanksgiving (we celebrate Canada and US Thanksgiving). But I don't like the cold :rofl:

    Aww very pretty!!!

    I may have to get one Monday before work to put me in a good fall mood :rofl:

    We should keep a log of autumn pics in here, the trees are starting to turn in the mountains already here apparently, so it shouldn't be long

    Hi guys

    I'm not exactly in a part of the world that gets fantastic autumn colours, but I also love autumn. My birthday is November 18th, so I love the run up to that. Me and hubster got married in New Hampshire on October 1st because I love the autumn, and our wedding pics are lovely with the bright red foliage in the background.

    Perhaps it could also be mentioned that autumn is a time of harvest and therefore FEASTING!!!! :)
    I know what you mean about the back-to-school feeling. That crisp air in September always feels like the start of a new year to me. I've never really adjusted to not having a student daytimer! :)
    I also start to feel very home-makey and want to knit sweaters and make all sorts of good food to freeze. Hey! That's almost like preparing for hibernation! :)

    I know how you feel Sarah. I always start wanting to bake and eat all the in-season foods and start making soups and stuff. Yumm. I'm also starting to get stocked up on warm fuzzy clothes for miss Renah. It is really preparing for hibernation, at least around here :rofl:

    As for the student planner, I went out and bought a planner at Staples so I don't go through total withdrawl. Small steps!!

    I have to say the best autumn days for me are the ones where you get up and it's really bright and sunny but lovely and cold
