Thursday Thanks Tank #107

Each Thursday I make a list of my thankful thoughts. I spend time throughout my day appreciating the little and big things in my life. My posted list gives you a glimpse of my thankful heart.

This year, I mourned the loss of summer. Fall arrived and I didn't smile. I wanted more sunshine and warmth. I am finally settling in and enjoying fall. I have spent the last day or so thinking about how Fall makes me happy.

I am thankful for Fall. Here are some of the reasons.

1. Open Houses at School:

2. Colorful Leaves:

3. Pumpkins:

4. Sweaters:

5. Lambs grazing in the fields:

6. Costumes:
These pictures were both taken on Wednesday. My kids dress up regularly and these aren't their Halloween costumes this year. Batman was here for Halloween last year - and many, many days in between. Elmo just likes dressing up like her brothers.

7. Fall Sunsets:

I am enjoying Fall now. I haven't given up on wearing Birkenstocks yet but I am enjoying Fall.

Take time to be thankful today. You will be glad you did.

We have been noticing the leaves around here too! It feels so good to walk outside and feel that fall air!

Although I was fairly ready for school to start, I also wasn't really ready for fall temps. Mostly because our summer weather was so cool.

Hi. I just stumbled across your blog and it seems great! I love the pictures, especially of the fall scenery! Normally I love fall too, but this year it's been snowing for the past few days! YUCK!

Great list...too bad that AZ doesn't have fall...I miss it so much. Makes me thankful for the memories I have of apple orchards, pumpkin patches, changing leaves and cool crisp air! Oh well! Great pics!
