Happy (Late) Fall!!

Yesterday was the first day official day of Fall, and I donned my silver pumpkin pin in honor of the changing season. Yes, I know I'm only 25, but I love fall, and pins, and other "old woman" things...I can't help it! I love pretty much everything there is about Fall. I love the color of the leaves, I love the slight nip in the air in the evenings, I love pumpkins, I love Halloween, I love mums and scarecrows...I love it all! This time of the year really makes me long for my dream land. Here's what I see when I close my eyes...
A long driveway winding up to this house,

which would be situated on over five acres of gently rolling land. From the back porch you could overlook the wooded areas surrounding the home, with all the trees showcasing their beautiful red and yellow leaves. At the rear of the property would the be the stream flowing by. I can envision a large Fall themed party, with lots of kids (if my friends ever decide to have kids!!) running around. There would lots of pumpkin carving taking place, a large bonfire to roast marshmallows and maybe even some old fashioned bobbing for apples. Yes, this is what I envision every year about this time.

But until that happens, I will have to enjoy Fall in my little piece of the world. One place I always enjoy going, but especially in the Fall, is Evan's Orchard. We went out to their apple festival a couple of week's ago and had a great time. We spent a lot of time sliding and swinging, then had a great lunch and ended the day with a long walk around the orchard picking apples.

"Hey goat!"

Happy Fall!!!!

I miss Evan's so much (I literally used to live less than five minutes from there). Glad to see fall stuff- I truly miss fall weather- it hasn't been below 89 degrees down here in quite some time. Ahhhh- it's times like this that I miss KY REALLY BAD :(
