Today I had technical difficulties (plugin problems) thus this post is late.
Day 3 of Back To Blogging Challenge: Fall Picture
I’m a Texas girl, a Central Texas girl, fall wasn’t filled with many colorful leaves and numerous pumpkin patches growing up. Nonetheless, autumn has always been my favorite season, maybe it was because fall meant birthday time, perhaps it was the excitement of Halloween or Mama’s Thanksgiving stuffing, whatever it was back then, I LOVED fall, and I still do. There are ample reasons why I love fall, but 8 years in Illinois magnified my love of fall on many levels.
Lately, I’m missing Illinois, a lot. Of course, I DO NOT miss the bone chilling days when your back aches from the harsh winter days of Illinois, but I miss the crisp cool days of fall and all our special spots there too. My family has so many great memories there. I loved our town back in Illinois, a family town for sure. There was always plenty to do there especially during the fall months. Thankfully, we didn’t waste away those fall days we usually took part in most of the fall festivities.
We picked our pumpkins every year at the same pumpkin patch.
The pumpkin patch is also a farm that has some the best honey crisp apples, ever.
I hope we will find good apples here….
Every Halloween the little downtown area would hold a trick-or-treat for the kids followed by a Halloween festival.
This particular Illinois-birthday I took a plethora of pictures, and had the best wannabe photographer luck. While my husband was taking pictures of me and the babies, a real life photographer came up to us and asked if she could help. She took a few pictures of the five us, free of charge just being a kindhearted midwestern.
I’m ready to make some Southern fall memories..
