I hope you feel inspired to embrace this beautiful season!  
Please share your fall traditions too.  I would love to hear.  

OCTOBER was a beautiful month at Green Gables, 
when the birches in the hollow turned as golden as sunshine 
and the maples behind the orchard were royal crimson
 and the wild cherry trees along the lane put on the loveliest shades
 of dark red and bronzy green, 
while the fields sunned themselves in aftermaths.

- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

If I didn't know better, Lisa Renee, I would think that you LOVE fall! It's fun to look back at all the incredible memories we've made. #12 on your list got me thinking... What are you doing on Friday night?
