Autumn's arrival

Thursday, September 24, 2009 |



The arrival of autumn
There is a chill in the air.
The days are getting shorter.
Beautiful shades of red, orange and
golds are decorating the trees.
The firewood is stacked.
Comfort foods are on the menu.
Sweaters are calling my name.
Autumn in New England is a privilege that I look forward to and enjoy each year.
This weekend I'm stealing an afternoon away with my husband.
I'm surprising him with a date to celebrate autumn and all the beauty it has to offer.

How fun - enjoy your date with your hubby! Autumn is my favorite time of year. Although, it's been humid and rainy here. Can't wait for the crisp air and changing of the leaves.

Gorgeous photo. Isn't this time of year the absolute greatest? I adore it oh so much. :) It's nice to meet a fellow New Englander! So glad to stumbled across my blog, as I am now afforded the luxury of scoping yours out. Love it! :) Have fun on your date- it sounds perfect!

Mmmm! Delicious words and pictures! Autumn is my FAVORITE time of year!!!

PS I noticed that you were looking to start reupholstering...don't be afraid to dig in! I am a self taught reupholsterer and have recovered major things like sofas and chairs!

If you want more information, feel free to drop me a line on my blog. I won't burden you with the details if you don't need them, but if you are in want of some good information from someone who knows, ask away! Have a good day!
