Hello September

I know that September is nearly over but I wanted to share some of my favorite things about this glorious month and the start of my favorite season, Autumn!
First thing I love about this time of year is the color scheme. My decorating is saturated with these colors...I just can't help myself they are just too AWESOME!
Second thing I love about this time of year is how the leaves cry out in bright arrays of breathtaking color...what if we all went out the way leaves do? Instead of withering and just fading away, we become brilliant and radiant where others couldn't help but say "wow, isn't she just beautiful!?". Not to be morbid but I hope that my last days are filled with this kind of amazing beauty!Seriously! This is just too awe inspiring! You just can't help but become introspective and contemplative. One of my friends was saying "I don't know what it is about this time of year but it just makes me want to go deeper". I think we've been conditioned to turn our brains back on in the fall because it's when academia resumes. I love it, I love it, I love it!
I also really love the smells and tastes of Autumn. I made these Pumpkin, Banana, Raisin muffins to celebrate the start of Fall over the weekend. It made the house smell so yummy! I also love to bake this time of year because I don't feel so guilty making the house a little warmer, while in summer it just adds to the already overly warm environment. What's your favorite thing to bake?
The last thing this time of year really gets me in the mood for is making things! I don't know if it's because the holidays are on our doorstep or if it just feels right. I started this scarf (thanks mom Olinger for teaching me) while watching Gray's Anatomy for the first time...don't know if I'm going to get into that show but I always like the music they pick (they played Mumford and Sons while I was watching and I honestly think that was my favorite part).

Please share your favorite thing about this time of year! :)

I think Autumn has become my favorite season in England. It's pretty much the same temperature as it is in the summer. But in Kansas, summer wins hands down.
