Love letter

{via here}

Dear Fall,

You're back! Welcome! I'm so glad to see you! {turns out I was wrong the other day, and today is actually the day that you arrive...}

It was a wonderful summer, but I'm ready for autumn now, and all the lovely things that you bring.

Things like crisp cool mornings and warm golden afternoons.

Trees full of leaves turning crimson, orange and amber. Leaves that fall into great huge crunchy piles, perfect for jumping in!

Wearing tights and skirts and cozy cardigans, and maybe a scarf, but not yet needing a winter coat.

I can't wait for evenings spent drinking tea and writing letters by the fire.

And picnics with campfires and marshmallows and thermoses full of hot chocolate.

For Thanksgiving dinner and pumpkin pie, and family all around.

Ooh, and pumpkin spice lattes! I luuurve pumpkin spice lattes. Yum.

I'm looking forward to a trip to the pumpkin patch, to hayrides on the farm, and baking pies from fresh picked apples.

I am excited to carve jack o'lanterns and take our boys trick-or-treating at dusk. They love trick-or-treating. We'll be out for hours...

I love you, Fall! We are going to have such good fun together.

  2. I'm slowly coming around to the idea of fall, myself. It WILL be glorious, won't it?

  3. Such a sweet ode to fall. I had my first pumpkin spice latte (soy) yesterday, and although I liked it, nothing compares to my 2 pump raspberry soy latte that I've cherished for over a decade! :)

    Thank you so much for putting my giveaway button (that Summer so kindly made) on your blog--I love the artist and really want to promote her shop :)
