Today I felt happy. I felt joy. I felt like I was smiling inside and out.

Autumn wonders, make me happy.

The smell of the chili cooking!

The sunshine making the red, orange and yellow off the trees look breathtaking.

Jumping in the leaves and the laughter from the little bellies!

I love this time of year. I rolled down the window of my car and inhaled the crisp air, trying to lock the feeling of the coolness into my brain forever.


Each Autumn I am reminded of a few of my favorite things that make me happy, that make me smile and appreciate life…

Pumpkin pie, caramel apples, hay rides sweet potatoes with brown sugar, homemade applesauce and pumpkin carving. Scarecrows, corn stalks, Friday night football, warm fires roasting, hot soups and the dark evenings and early bedtimes. Witches, goblins, fairies and trick or treat knocks at the door steps of neighbors. Hot apple cider and warm fresh doughnuts blessing my belly (and hips) and tantalizing the taste buds.

I am happy. Autumn is here.
