I've mentioned it before, but I absolutely love fall. It is, by far, my favorite time of the year. It's not just the cooler temperatures, the falling leaves, and the lack of bugs, it everything. It's drinking warm apple cider bought from a little roadside stand. It's wearing sweaters, and carving pumpkins, and fresh fall skies.
Tomorrow marks the official start of fall for us. Every year we head out to this huge festival, and for me, that's a sign autumn is here. The festival is amazing, it's a members only (me feeling superior for exactly one second) event that thousands of people attend. The food and activities are all free, they sell homemade goods, and have games for the little ones.
Needless to say, I am so excited! I can't wait to spend the day making spin art with the little ones (it'll be GM, Little M, and Little C-my 1 year old nephew). I can't wait to stuff myself with fries, chicken corn soup, and cotton candy. And I can't wait to buy some yummy homemade fruit salsa and pick up some gourds to adorn our front porch.
Here's a bit of last year's excitement:
