The Warmth of Autumn

I recently read the October chapter in Amanda Blake Soule's book, The Rhythm of Family.  She talks about the darkness of the month, and I did sort of a double take because I couldn't instantly understand what she meant.  I get it of course, the day literally gets darker and cooler as a matter of fact.  I just always thought of it as the warmest of all seasons.

Autumn is our favorite season at home.  I vividly remember the smell and the feel of the air from childhood, it truly felt like a soul harvest.

Today, Autumn invites me to create a cozy home: light fires, light candles, carve pumpkins, roast pumpkin seeds, bake, watch browns, reds and yellows fly off trees.

A Rainy Day

  1. Autumn is my favorite time, I always liken the leaves falling to memories of the year falling into my soul, to take inward through the Winter months and reflect on the changes I will make, to make things better or different, so that come Spring new ideas can be made.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
