My Favorite Things I Love About Autumn by Jodie Wolfe

Thrilled to have my friend Jodie Wolfe with me today sharing about her Five Loves of Autumn. Enjoy!

1. The Smells - I love the smell of the leaves as you walk through them. Then there's the scent of hot apple
cider, apple crisp hot from the oven and the smell of the apples as they become ripe on the tree. I love to have either an apple or pumpkin candle burning once fall hits. Sorry, I couldn't limit it to just one smell. :)

2. The Sounds - While I'm not crazy about raking, I do love the sound of leaves as they crunch and rustle under foot. Almost every year when my sons were still at home we would take a fall leaf hike up on the mountain near us. There's was something about that sound as we trekked through the forest to be the first to find a unique leaf.

3. Change of Temperature - I really enjoy when the weather begins to turn cooler. I love to take a stroll early each morning and I find it invigorating to walk when there is a briskness to the air. Somehow it makes me feel more alive.

4. The colors - I live in PA and this year the colors were exceptional. Each morning as I walked in my
neighborhood I took stock of what new trees were beginning to show signs of color. I truly enjoyed seeing the progression from the first hint of hue until now when very few leaves are remaining on the trees.

5. What's to Come - While I truly have enjoyed the colors, sounds, smells and cooler temperatures, my most favorite thing about fall is that winter is right around the corner. :) Winter is my favorite season because I absolutely love SNOW. My friends are always giving me a hard time in winter because whenever there is any threat of precipitation, I'm the one praying for snow. :)


Jodie Wolfe loves to stroll through history with the characters she creates. When not writing she enjoys
spending time with her husband, reading and walking.

I love the pictures, Jodie! This is unique - it's built around the senses: Smell, sound, feel.
