Wise Words From Readers: On the beginnings of fall...

Ahh, can you feel the crisp chill in the air, friends? Can you smell that familiar scent of burning leaves in the distance? Can you spot the beautiful leaves dancing as they fall off the trees? It all comes together to create one intoxicating recipe for fall. I know -- it's hard to believe, but the first official day of fall is right around the corner. Everyone has their favorite season, but fall seems to hold an extra special place in people's hearts. And your memories were quite strong this week...

*My favorite part is the air. It always smells a little different and it almost feels like you're drinking fresh water when you take a deep breath of chilly fall air! I love when it smells of crunchy leaves, burning wood, apples, hay, etc. Those are the smells I associate with autumn. Also, the sound of crunching leaves on a walk makes me so happy! Oh, how could I forget marching band season!!!!! Yessssssss!!!!

*Joe (my husband) and I fell in love in the fall!

*Walking home from school, kicking the leaves in the gutter the whole way. Bonfires!!! After the frosts begin, the air smells clean and sharp. I love the autumn! Marching band and football games. The stars seem clearer.

*Cooler temps in the South!

*I enjoy the sense of newness, like things are about to turn around.
What wonderful memories...makes me want to jump in a pile of leaves or go pick raspberries in our favorite orchard, which is something we always used to do when I was growing up. Also on my list: Candy corn, caramel apples, apple cider donuts and pumpkins. Hmmm, I'm noticing that my list is quite heavy on the food! Anyway, here's next week's question...

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you bring along and why?
