20 Little Things to Treasure in Autumn

Melissa over at The Inspired Room is inspiring women all over the blogosphere to share their favorite 20 things about Autumn. It all started with this post at Beautifully Imperfect, and since this fits in so beautifully with all we've been trying to accomplish this month, I decided to share my own list.

20 Little Things to Treasure in Autumn

  1. Snuggling in bed with crisp sheets and down comforters

  3. Slipping feet into soft slippers to keep them warm
  4. Sunlight filtering through trees of gold and red
  5. Fingers keeping warm wrapped around a steaming mug
  6. Early mornings dripping with dew
  7. Crisp, clear nights bundled up watching the skies
  8. Your breath visible and hanging in the air

  1. I love all of these! And it sounds like starting this weekend, we can start enjoying them.

  2. Tamy... I know... Now that I've listed it all out, I can't wait! :) Plus hockey starts soon ;)

  3. Yummmmmmmm and Mmmmmmmmmm. I'm a winter person and last year I mentally skipped autumn after summer. This year I feel a much stronger appreciation growing for autumn and your list really brought a warm glow to start the season. Thanks.

  4. You inspired me to make my list too. I had to write my own before I let myself read yours, knowing that we would have quite a few of the same. Yep, we do! :)

  5. Great list! I love the cute little leaves on that pie. It almost looks too good to eat....almost.

  6. Homemade Chile and cornbread sounds good!


Thank you so much for commenting. I love every single one!
