Many of you know…..Fall is my least favorite season of the year. I know all the reasons for loving Fall but there are too many sad memories attached to the Fall months for me so I try to make the best of it. I am thankful for all of my blessings….and being thankful helps me more than anything!  So ‘nuff said….

For not enjoying fall, I'd say "you done good!". Thank you, sweet friend, for you kind words. Today I am thankful for my blog friends too!

Vee said...

Your home looks great in fall colors... I'm sorry that fall has some bad memories and I hope that you can make some new and happier ones. (I know many folks who feel this way at Christmastime for the same reason.) You're going on a trip? Great! I love it when you take trips because you share.

Your win is so cute! And the tag is beautiful as well. People are just so creative!

Thankful? I woke up this morning so it's all good.

Pumpkin Girl is cute! Your fall decor is very nice and it's okay that it isn't your favorite season:)

Have a great day!
Warmly,

Love all of your Fall decorations - the one on the fridge in particular is so beautiful, it has inspired me to take down those chip bags and make it look nice on my fridge as well!

How sweet! Pumpkin Girl looks so cute with your beautiful Fall decor. Everything looks so lovely. Thank you for sharing your pictures with us. Yes, I'm blessed and thank God for my family (beautiful granddaughter) and doing the things I love to do. Most of all for living in this great nation of ours and not to forget all the wonderful blogger friends I have gained. May you have a wonderful fall season with a smile in your heart

Blessings to you!

Hi Diane! I love your sunset shot and pics of the fair. The goat is adorable. We missed the big Syracuse, NY state fair this year, but maybe next. I love the animals!

Boo-Bah said...

The sunset is beautiful. Fall and Winter are my favorite seasons.

Your Autumn decor is so pretty. The third picture is my favorite of all your wonderful Autumn things. You have a real talent for arranging it all.

Everything on your blog is inspiring! Thank you for coming to visit me today. I'm sorry I haven't been by much. My summer was super busy and not as relaxing as I'd hoped. I love to see your nice comments! :)

You've greeted autumn in full swing with your decor ... just lovely & so inviting.

Have a great week ~

Stacey said...

Hi Diane! Just had to pop by and say hello. Your home looks perfectly set for the fall. You know, my husband says that autumn makes him feel melancholy too. He says it every year. No special reason....I always enjoy the change. A break from the heat and new routines are nice to me.

Totally enjoying my new teaching job but no time to blog. Maybe soon. :)

M.Kate said...
