Fall Colors

Here I am with my Tuesday inspiration for  Fitztown's Challenge Blog. We'd love nothing more than to have you join us for Challenge #53 - Fall Colors
This is my most favorite time of year. I love the colors, sounds and smells of the autumn season. Especially the food! Can we talk apple pies, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin bread, butternut squash soup and, my personal favorite, apple crisp? Then... there's all the fun family activities! We use to live in New Hampshire and we really got into visiting what I named Pumpkin Town and Scarecrow City. The names imply what they mean and I'll let your imagination go wild! Then the apple picking, bonfires, tailgating at football games, pumpkin carving, hayrides, corn mazes, fall festivals and my most favorite was always putting on a big comfy sweater, worn comfortable boots and going for a hike. I absolutely loved breathing in the cool, crisp air, watching the many colored leaves floating around and listening to the crunch of the leaves under my feet, better yet, kicking at a pile of leaves and see the leaves go up and flutter back down. So this image from Fitztown reminded me, first, of my dad's cowboy boots. Worn, dark and deeply loved. My dad LOVED wearing his cowboy boots. He was a Southern Baptist minister and was almost always dressed in Sunday best and dress shoes so I know it was a real treat for him when he got to wear jeans and boots. Second, memories of those long hikes I loved to take my kids on just to take in all that autumn offers the senses!
Don't the boots look like they're ready to just pop off the page and go for a walk through the country? I think that's cause they are popped up on foam tape! Ha!
