It’s finally October and in my mind that means that fall has officially started. Nevermind the fact that I started seeing Halloween stuff before Labor Day, once October rolls around I feel in the mood for fall.

I’m really not sure what my most favorite thing about fall would be. Fall makes me a bit gloomy because it means winter is coming and even though I live in the Midwest, I detest winter. I’m not sure why I didn’t attend college in California or Hawaii. Once winter hits, I’m cold all of the time!

I guess there are some things I like about fall. The leaves changing color would be a great example. As a photographer, it’s fun to capture the change in seasons here in Iowa.

I’m excited because the photography group I belong to will be heading out on a night shoot next week. We try to do one of these every year. I’m not so great a night shoots yet, but I hope that having a digital camera (aka My Fancy Pants Camera) will help me hone my skill a bit as I can see the results of my shot immediately and make adjustments as needed.

For me, the best thing about fall in Thanksgiving. My family comes to town and I cook this huge meal for everyone. I love cooking and baking. Although, as the family has gotten larger, I’ve delegated some of the easy to travel courses like desserts to other family members. Once we get into November, I’ll share some of my tried and true Thanksgiving recipes with y’all. Should be exciting! I can’t wait!

How about you? What’s your favorite thing or things about fall?

  1. I’m with you, fall leads to winter and so it is a waiting game for when it starts to get really cold. Well, cold for me, which isn’t cold for most people heh. But I love fall Holidays -Halloween! Thanksgiving is fun too.

    • Halloween is fun in our offices. They let us dress up and in the afternoon people can bring their kids trick or treating at our cubes!

    I love the fall colors especially here in bluff country along the Mississippi, but my favorite things about fall are the rustle of dry corn in the fields, football, and fires in our wood fireplace. Nothing beats the smell of a fireplace with a fall nip in the air. Halloween is fine, but Thanksgiving is our favorite. My 4 year old loves to travel to her aunt and uncle’s house for “vacation.”

    • Don’t go riding my horse, Jezebel, near the dry stalks of corn. THAT’S SCARY! There might be children in the corn. 😉

  3. This is my favorite time of year-love the cooler temps, the changing colors of the leaves on the trees, and all the candy that comes along with Halloween 😀

    • Oh, candy! How could I forget the CANDY!

    Fall is really bittersweet for me. I like it because we still get to see those sunny days and it’s not too hot also I love when leaves change colors! But then it also means that winter is near and I don’t like that. But I’ll be waiting to see those pictures! Just so you know! 🙂

    • It’s been raining here ALL day. It’s so gloomy and gross out. I want spring back now!

  5. I used to live in Indiana so I know that feeling. Now I have the opposite problem, haha. I do really enjoy fall and winter because I like to walk and it’s so nice when it’s not too hot or not too cold to go outside and just roam around.
