Friday Five: Fall Preview
What is laying ahead for Fall
1. Lot of celebrations!
October is a huge month for celebration in my world. I have a grandson, twin nieces, a step daughter, & a mother - ALL celebrating birthdays that month. It's a feast of birthday cake. Ricky & I also celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary in October. Yet another reason to celebrate with cake! My brother's birthday drags at the end of Fall & falls on Thanksgiving every few years. A perfect excuse for not cake, but pumpkin pie.
Ricky & I always have taken our vacation in the fall. We have no children so we never had to do the 'summer break' vacation & it works because that's normally when others do their vacations, so we get a vacation all to ourselves in most places. Even Disney during the Fall isn't as crowded. Oh, its still crowded, but its not summer-crowded. I don't care if we just stay at home all week. In the fall, I'll sit on my porch reading all week & be in pure bliss.
3. Busy Camera Clicking
|Well, that's just irritating|
Of course fall is when everyone wants pictures done. The weather is cool & crisp - no frizzy hair happening. The colors are beautiful with changing leaves. It's a good time to dress in boots & scarves making a great Christmas card. My October for the NEXT year usually fills up by the end of this year. & I will still have someone get in touch with me September 30th wanting an October session.
4. Pumpkins everywhere!
I love orange. I love pumpkins. I love decorating. I usually have a fight with my husband when I can decorate for Halloween & Thanksgiving. I think I decorate more for that then I do for Christmas. I just love the warmth of it all. Pumpkins everywhere! I can never get enough.
I love everything about Halloween. Well, maybe not everything. I love the holiday. I love the dressing up. I love the fun of it... but I hate that since we moved, we have no Halloween. No kid wants to walk a few miles to get to 1 or 2 houses ... country roads are no place for Halloween trick or treaters. When we lived in Louisville, I did Halloween UP! I dressed up as a witch, had my house sounding spooky, looking spooky - it was great... now, I sit in my witches costume all by myself in my living room. #sad ... not really, but kinda... but I still love the holiday. Love seeing pictures of people dressed up. Love Halloween parties. Love all the clearance candy the next day.
What are you looking forward to this fall?
