What makes me happy... in Fall

- Warm smell of vanilla when cooking
- Smell of crisp air
- Pie in the oven
- Smell of a warm fire

- Spicy, shades of oranges, yellows, reds, brown, eggplant
- Leaves changing colors

Cozy - warm feelings
- Warmth - candle, throws
- cozy up the house (cocooning) - pillows, curtains, linens, rugs, flowers, plants, candles, flannel sheets
- Comfort cooking: caramel apple porc chops in the crockpot, spaghetti sauce, grilled cheese sandwiches with soup, smell of warm bread, apple pie, apple crumble, casseroles,
- Apples, pumpkins
- Watching movies snuggled up in a warm blanket
- Cozy fluffy socks and warm sweaters
- Flannel pjs

Other things that Fall brings and that make me smile:
- Halloween
- Indian Summer
- Fall magazines
- Crafting
- New tv programs
- Watching Macy's Thanksgiving parade
- Watching the Greater Snow Goose pass overhead
