It's the most wonderful time of the year....

That song really should've been about fall. I love everything about this season. I also love The Inspired Room. She has encouraged her readers to share 20 little things they love about autumn. So here goes...

1. No more pollen allergies!!!

2. Crisp morning air

3. Seeing all the kids waiting at their bus stops in sweaters, jackets and hoodies

4. Snuggling up under my family quilt

5. Bonfires

6. Hayrides

7. Hot apple cider with cinnamon sticks

8. Apple pies

9. Carving Pumpkins

10. Sunday football with my man

11. Anticipating Christmas

12. Indian corn, hay bails, and pumpkins on the porch

13. Sitting on the porch swing with a sweater

14. Evening walks

15. Pumpkin recipes (roll, cheesecake, bread, pie, name it)

16. Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays of all time

17. Puffy vests

18. Shopping for turtlenecks

19. Windows down. Heat on.

20. Thanking God for His beautiful creation, dusted with hues of orange, amber, yellow and green

What do you love about fall?

Or, more importantly, what is your favorite pumpkin recipe?
