I am doing a 30 Days of Thankful book this year with Cathy Zielske. Check out Cathy’s blog for her challenge . . . you can find Cathy’s 2013 templates here in the Designer Digitals store in 4 sizes! I’m using the 6” x 8” size and plan on having them spiral bound I am thinking right now . . . I might change my mind!! A woman’s prerogative is to change her mind at any given moment, isn’t it?

Day 01: Autumn is my favorite season! I think that I revel in the color and warmth of autumn more than in any other season. I love that the humidity is leaving and the warmth of the sun leaves a glow that isn’t as evident in summer. I love the colors of autumn . . . the reds, the yellows, oranges and gold’s! I love the crisp feel to the air and the toasty feel when the sun shines on my face. I love to get out the autumn decorations and move from Halloween into the thankfulness of the month of November . . . and moving from Jack-o-lanterns to the simple abundance of wonderful orange pumpkins scattered about. We love to take trips northward and watch the changes as we move from our home to our favorite New England destinations.
