It’s Fall Ya’ll!

We have been having the most glorious weather – in the 80’s during the day and the 50’s at night – which is one reason that Fall is my favorite time of year. I hope you’re enjoying the season.

Fall is memories of…

Friday night football followed by Saturday trips to Austin to see the ‘Horns play

homecoming mums

drill teams and marching bands

yellows, golds, reds, browns, and, of course, burnt orange

family traditions

homemade Halloween costumes

festivals, bazaars, and craft shows

Pilgrims, Indians, and turkeys

pumpkin pie

apple cider

a nip in the air after a blazing-hot Texas summer

casseroles, beef stew, chicken and dumplings, and all the other comfort food it’s too hot to cook in the summer

anticipation of the holidays to come

falling leaves that crunch when you walk on them


marshmallow roasts

tailgating parties

nubby sweaters and coats

scarecrows and pumpkin patches

Thanksgiving football rivalries





To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven… Ecclesiastes 3:1
