Falling.

It seems like the weather knew the exact minute the calendar said it was Fall.
Everything changed overnight and now we're smack in the midst of Fall.
And I love it.

I love the colors. The sounds.
The feel. The decor. (By the way, feel free to decorate now. Ha! Some of you will get that joke.)

I love Fall.
(did you know they make gummy candy corn?! I didn't. And I thought they were so cute, I bought some just to take a picture.)


The foods. The clothes.
The pumpkins. The activities.
The baking.

I'm falling for Fall.

I love the candy pumpkins this time of year. Can't wait for cooler weather either! It's still in the upper 80/lower 90's here. We don't have distinct seasons.

Snowcatcher said...

I am SO with you! The colors are so glorious, and I'm hoping there will still be leaves on the aspens this weekend after our first significant snowfall of the season. We turned on our heater for the first time Tuesday, and it works!!! (new home, short sale, lots of work to do, but we have heat!)

I buy candy solely to use in photos, too. Can't eat it, so might as well do something constructive with it! Thank heavens my co-workers don't have qualms about devouring my "models" when I get done with them!

My favorite time of year!!! Love everything about it, but wish we were feeling the fall temps! Still in triple digits.................

Erica said...

i love fall too! growing up in southern california we didn't really have fun so i've LOVED the last two falls i've gotten to experience here. except for candy corn. yuck.

Vanessa and Company said...

I had no idea that Gummy Candy Corn existed, cool! I so wish it felt like fall here....Instead, it's hotter than H-E-double hockey sticks, and totally killing the fall vibe. At least I can live vicariously through you, and your candy corn.

Amy said...

I love everything about fall, I just wish we got more of it down here!

Beadin By The Sea said...

Ah, yes, I can say we are feeling Fall here just a little but it's still been around 65-70 degrees during the day. My flower baskets are still looking spectacular so I'm not quite ready to pitch them and go all out for Fall decorating just yet. Enjoy, when I lived in Kansas, Fall was THE best season!

Great picture!

It's still hot as heck over here, but my house is filled with everything Fall.

Enjoy your nice weather.

xo,
Adrienne

I don't think California got the memo that it is now Fall. It has been in the 100's all week. yuck!! I also LOVE Fall, but it doesnt really become Fall in Cali until October.
And, have you tried Caramel Candy Corn? It is AMAZING!!! I wrote about it on my blog last year!

It is WAY better than normal candy corn!

gretchen said...

I love the fall too! I'm dying to pull out all the autumnal decorations and go to town with the pumpkins and autumn leaves. Unfortunately, it's been in the 90's all week!

Wendy said...

kraftykash said...

Mindy M. Harris said...

Misha said...

I fell for Fall years ago and I'm afraid it's a love affair to last a lifetime. I'm so lucky now to live out of the desert so I can actually experience all the best parts. I'm wanting that gummy candy corn! I had no idea they made it and it looks so good!

The Perfect Trio said...

Sew Gracious said...

LOVE autumn!!

Christina said...

I thought the same thing this year...I live in Dallas, which some people will tell you is hot, or hotter. And they are nuts. Anyway...in my son's class they had to find out the exact time that fall started (for the northern hemisphere). We found out it was 5:18 on the 22nd, and from that evening on it has been cool as can be here. I thought it was so funny, and otherwise wouldn't have known except for his little assignment that fall had officially started.

Mike and Linda said...

Yummy....those look good. The old fashion kind are way to sweet so maybe the gummy ones would be better. Candy Corn...thanks....

Rebekah said...

ah fall... Christmas isn't the only "most wonderful time of the year"!

I did not know there was gummy candy corn - I'll have to keep an eye out for that! They're so cute!

Pineapple Princess said...
