Express Yourself: Autumn

The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is brought to you by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.

The prompt for this week is: Name ONE thing you love about Autumn, even if you hate it!

Though I don't exactly love the fact that this time of year signals that winter is on its way, I have nothing against autumn itself.  My favorite part is the leaves!  I hate it when snow falls in October, which it often does in Iowa, in part because it covers the beautiful leaves.  As a kid, and even as an adult if I'm honest, I loved raking leaves into piles to jump in them.

This time of year is so gorgeous I can't even begin to describe it.

What's one thing you love about autumn?


  1. I'm appreciating autumn this year because I'm walking three dogs for the first time, and they have fun sniffing through all the leaves. Also, we've had a really mild September, bit of an Indian summer earlier in the month. That's definitely not usual though!

  2. Your leaves are gorgeous. Autumn is my favorite season of the year. I love just about everything about it, but I look forward to leaves the most; and I still love scuffing through them and humping into them! Take care!

  3. I chose leaves, too! So beautiful!
