Do you all love autumn as much as I do? 
Especially the month of September.  Oh, October is more dramatic, with all of the flaming Reds and Oranges, but September has my heart.  Sweet memories of Back-to-School Days,red plaid dresses, new red shoes; fond memories of being a young bride [ our wedding day was on an August 30], wonderful memories of my own teaching days,of new students whom I would come to love; of Harvests and Heartbreaks [9/11], of a September 19 so many years ago when our daughter came to live with us and made our family complete.
September. The end of the summer. A bittersweet month.  And this song always makes me cry.

September blessings to you all,


  1. What a beautiful autumn post...your pictures are so them...enjoy a happy autumn darling filled with love

  2. Dawne,
    These photos are just incredible, and really capture the beauty of Fall. The first photo is so pretty I'd like to frame it and put it in my home. Oh, how I remember those plaid dresses too. When we went school shopping, my mom always bought me an outfit in plaid for the first week of school. I'm so glad you like Fall as much as I do. Have a lovely weekend, my friend.
