Down Autumn’s Road





Reflection and rest

are just a few of the pleasures one finds

while traveling down autumn’s road.

It’s been a cold, rainy start to the month of October here in Minnesota.  Can’t say I haven’t still been thoroughly enjoying it though.  After the hot summer, the moisture along with the cooler temps of autmun are a welcome relief to me, and I love the cozy feeling it gives me.  😀

I’ve pretty much had candles lit around the house continuously all week, filling the air with the delicious scents of vanilla, pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, cranberry, and spice.  Mmm…

I’ve made up my bed with soft, luscious fleece sheets, put on my fuzzy socks, bundled myself up in comfy flannel, and have been enjoying sipping on various hot drinks.  I’ve got the urge to bake something, but so far have just been relaxing.  And reflecting.

Gosh, I do so adore this time of year!  All my senses are heightened and I’ve got that warm, romantic feeling.  ❤


Whatever the weather where you are, may your day be filled with the beauty and comforting pleasures of autumn’s road too.  And with…

  3. Sounds fun Julie. I love how you cozy up to autumn. Great photo and colors too. Today is our first cool day 🙂


    • I’m enjoying it very much! 🙂
      Thanks Brad, that photo was taken in the autumn of 2012 and there’s some disagreement between my daughter and I who actually snapped it, as we were sharing a camera (hers) that day, so being unsure, I couldn’t put my name to it. 😉 The colors aren’t quite to that point yet so far this fall, but soon…
      And how are you liking the first cool day there? Hope you’re cozying up to it! 😀

  8. I love Autumn’s Road, especially that one in the photo! I would love to stroll down that path! I’m glad you’re enjoying the cozy days indoors. We’re having sunny weather here so I’m enjoying the sunny mornings but it still doesn’t feel like candle burning weather yet. Enjoy a warm and cozy weekend!


    • I really have been enjoying these cozy, rainy days indoors. Of course… I don’t want them to last too long, because I also wanna be outdoors as much as I can during this most beautiful of seasons. So glad you’re having some nice sunny weather there Trisha, and hope you have a wonderful weekend too! 🙂

  13. Got down to 40 last night–out of nowhere, mind. No frost on the pumpkins but first hint that we’re getting there! Stay warm!!!


    • I believe it got down to the low 30’s here last night, I haven’t been out to check my garden yet, but I’m fairly certain most of it will be wilted. It’s okay though, I’m ready to put my garden to rest. 🙂


  14. What are the red trees Julie? They look like our Schumach tree which has been beautiful and has only just lost its leaves. 🙂


I'd love to hear from you!
