    I love the rich colors of all. Though this year I would just be happy with highs in the 90s instead of 100s!!

  169. Love the smells of Fall. The colors of the leaves and being able have the windows open to blow the summer stink out of the house LOL. I am a big pumpkin eater so Fall also means I can freely have pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins etc. without people thinking I am a freak :) Love your blog. You are an inspiration to me! Thank you :)

  171. Addicted to Crafting says:

    I love the fall decorations and soft sweaters and boots we all jump in to :)

  172. I love the trips to the pumpkin patch, oh, and caramel apples!

  173. June@I will craft says:

    I love the crisp air and cool nights of fall along with the smell of burning leaves – for some reason I like that smell.

  174. I love the cool weather of fall.


  175. Andrea Shupe says:

    For me, I love the focus inward on our homes. We get cozy, spend more time at home, decorate, bake, celebrate, things that aren't as much of our focus in the summer. Love that!

  176. I don't think there is just one thing I love most about fall. I love the crisp air, boots, the colors, the smells, and I really love hearing the crows… I know that sounds odd, but it makes it feel like Halloween to me.

  177. Stephanne says:

    I love the colors… and the smell of homemade apple pie!!

    P.S. I love those ruffled pumpkins–what a great idea!

  178. Diana and Steven says:

  181. I love all your fun Halloween projects. Congratulations on being in Better Homes and Gardens. You're awesome.

  182. I also liked Cozi on FB!!

  183. I love the smells, crunching through dried leaves, sweaters, and hot chocolate!

  184. I love the crisp feel of the air. Wearing sweaters, changing of the leaves, the smell of pumpkin spice candles, my birthday, having a bowl of thick chowder and a cup of hot cocoa-in short, EVERYTHING!


  185. littlekahootz says:

    My absolute favorite part of fall is the changing of the leaves…so many colors that I love. I'm sad that in only lasts about a week in california. It's the thing I miss most about living in the midwest.

  186. B and Bs Mama says:

    Oh, I love Fall. I love all of the changing colors in the trees, warm wool sweaters and boots and hot cider. Autumn is the year's last, loveliest smile! XOXO Laura

  189. Gingersnaps says:

    Fall is one of my most favorite times of the year! I am crazy (I blame my MOm) about decor for Halloween! My Mom's birthday is the 14th of Sept., so we always put ours out before that! Our neighbors think we are nuts! We love it!

  190. I love walking in crunchy leaves, making soup, and having one more fire in the backyard fire pit to roast marshmallows before the snow flies.

    I love fall hikes in the woods with my kids!!

  195. Congrats on your feature!! I love fall but probably the best thing is the smells: apple pie baking, fall candles (autumn wreath by Yankee), the outside smell which screams fall!!

  196. Stephanie says:

    I love the smells of fall!! AND my kids running through our pumpkin patch trying to find the best Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin!!

  197. Carrie L Wynder says:

    I love the color of the leaves. I also love cooler weather since I live in a very humid place in the summer.

  198. Everything pumpkin. (The color, muffins, lattes, spicy candles… )

    Mmm. Thanks for the giveaway! :-)

  199. Sourkraut says:

    I am such a huge fan of the season that it's impossible to pick just one thing! I will say that Halloween is my favorite holiday so the abundance of Halloween crafts on all the blogs I follow is something I'm looking forward to the most.

  200. Fall is my favorite season. I love the colorful leaves, the way the light seems more golden, baking with apples & pumpkins.

  207. Amanda @ Serenity Now says:

    You have so many amazing and inspiring crafts! My favorite thing about Fall is of course wearing my boots…but also taking my girls to the pumpkin patch. :)

  208. I love fall because of all the activities. Halloween, apple picking, pumpkins. Plus, its the start of the big holiday season. Just really wish after it was over it would turn to spring instead of winter :/

  209. I love Everything about Fall! The warm clothes, the soups and stews, the colors on the trees, everything!

  210. I love the cool Autumn air, the leaves falling and that feeling you get that the holidays are coming. Not to mention fall is my birthday season. LOL

  216. The Sweet Lime says:

    I'm in Florida, so no break from the heat but the sounds of fall are what make me excited…

    Cheers for Football teams! And the happy sounds of Tailgating! And the sizzle of onions in my heavy enameled cookware that has been sitting in the cabinet all summer…

  217. FrouFrouBritches says:

    Fal is my favorite season. The temperature is perfect. The turning colors are beautiful. Fall food is so yummy – hello chili and homemade soup! MMM! And Pumpkin Spice and Fall Harvest Yankee Candles are my FAVE!

  218. My favorite thing about fall is usually the scents and new foods we can eat. But this year, my favorite thing about fall is welcoming a NEW BABY!!! Woo hoo!

  219. Nessa the Procrastinator says:

    My favorite part of fall is being able to bust out my pumpkin spice candles. They look and smell too weird during summer. :)

  220. Fall…. I love a break from this crazy summer Texas weather! & the kids all get back to school so I can tackle my projects!

  221. Something about Stacey says:

    All my kids are born in the fall and camping in the cooler weather is an irreplaceable tradition.

  222. I like fall because I can turn off the A/C and start opening the windows.

  223. I love fall because it is the start of decorating season… Halloween, Thanksgiving and then Christmas! I love decorating our home for each holiday.

    Fall is my favorite time of year!!! I love the colors, the temperatures, football, Halloween, chili on a cool night, and of course all the great decorations!!!

  234. What's not to love? My favorite is probably the smell of the crisp air on that first truly autumn day.

  236. I LOVE the cooler temps, the change of leaves, the fun fall and Halloween crafts… all of it!

  237. I love so much about fall – it's my favorite season. I love the sounds, the smells, the colors, the foods, and most specifically football Saturdays, pumpkins, leaves falling, soups, sweaters, fuzzy socks, etc. Oh, I'm SO ready for fall!

  238. I love the crisp, cool weather, farmers markets and the smells of Autumn in Michigan…

  250. I love that it marks the end of our rainy season, we can finally send the kids outside with out them coming back in covered in mud!
    Fall is my mot favorite season!!

  251. Stephanie says:

    The crisp cool air and smells are my favorite. Especially after a long and hot New Orleans summer. I love fall inspired recipes too – I probably cook and bake more this time of year than any other.

  252. I look forward to cooler temperatures and beautiful foliage.

  253. I love being able to sleep with the windows open, feeling the crisp air in the morning.

  254. I love fall because it means the holiday season is coming up. Fall just seems to remind me of all the fun things I have to look forward to. And, I love wearing sweats on Saturday when it is kinda chilly out.

  255. To me, summer is active, active, active. Fall is a time to slow down and cool off. You've got Friday night football games, colors, cool breezes (open windows!!) and comfort food. I love all of those aspects of fall. As a teacher, fall is going back to school and making a difference in lives.

    It is just a cool time of year!

  256. My favorite thing about Fall is the slightly cooler weather, With the record breaking heat we've had here this summer the Fall temps will be so welcome!

  257. My favorite thing about fall is the cooler mornings, where you can almost see your breath in the air and you have to wear sweaters to stay warm. Love your blog!!

  258. To me, Fall means nice sweaters, hot chocolates, apple picking and apple pies! It's depressing to know that fall is coming, but when it comes I enjoy every bit of it!

    I love everything about fall! The color, food, and festivities.
