Enjoying Fall

If you live where there are changing seasons you are, as I am, most fortunate. My husband just said today that we are nearing the peak with the changing trees in our area. It was such a gorgeous cool, crisp, sunny day here in Northwest Indiana.

There are so many great things about fall...the changing leaves, the falling leaves (it's so fun to "shuffle" through the leaves), bountiful harvests of so many kinds of squash, apples, and more. Yards are decorated with colorful mums, pumpkins, cornstalks, bales of straw, and scarecrows. There are bonfires with hot chocolate, hot dogs, and s'mores! There's that first frost and seeing your breath in the morning.

Enjoy these wonderful fall days. Drive where there are lots of trees and enjoy the color. (We live near the Indiana Dunes and always take a drive there in the fall to enjoy the thousands of trees.) Soon it will be winter. I love winter; it has a beauty of it's own. But take the time to enjoy today...the beautiful fall with all of it's color! God made it for us to enjoy so let's do it!
