If you read this blog for a bit, you’ll quickly realize that I’m a huge fan of all things Fall! What’s not to love about changing leaves, warm flannel blankets, and pumpkin patches? Since I was thinking about all the things I love about Autumn, I thought it would be fun to make up these “I Love You More” Mini Love Notes to let my friends and family know just how much they mean to me. Why don’t we take a little virtual walk through some of my favorite things about Fall?
I’ve been a book lover for as long as I can remember and to this day, I have a hard time falling asleep without a book in my hand. I’m such an introvert that books gave me a place to escape to when I was trying to avoid the real world. Curling up on the couch on a cool Autumn day with a good book, a quilted blanket, and my warm Minnetonka Moccasins sounds like my kind of heaven!
I started my love affair with coffee after I had kids and it’s only grown stronger in the years since! There’s just something about the smell and flavor of coffee that wakes up the senses and gets you going on these cold Fall mornings. I’m actually a big fan of tea as well but for me and my house, coffee is thicker than blood!
I’m actually not the biggest fan of pumpkin flavoring or food but I absolutely LOVE decorating with them! I’m always that crazy lady you see walking from the pumpkin patch with 15 different varieties of pumpkins in her basket. All the different colors and shapes just speak to my Autumn-loving heart! (and, yes, I actually wear my Minnetonka Moccasins out and about! They have a rubber sole that makes running out for a quick errand comfortable and safe.)
Even though I come from a family of sewers, I didn’t fall in love with sewing until my mid-twenties when I started making purses. Eventually the hobby became a business and I designed and manufactured personal accessories for the next 7 years. I had to retire from Gerbera Designs when my boys came around but I still love to sew to this day. You know it’s true if I say I love you more than sewing!
Last but not least, one of my favorite (if not my absolute favorite) things about this time of year is Halloween! I love that from decorating to costume making, handmade ideas rule supreme and no one bats an eye when they see skeleton hands hanging from your door! Halloween will always be my favorite time of year and yet…I still love you more!
