Ten on the Tenth | Enjoying Fall.

last week's lake view ... those trees are nearly bare now, but wow!
Ten on Tuesday is now a monthly thing and I couldn't be happier today to share my first Ten on the Tenth post about things I'm enjoying this fall.

1. The colors. The trees have put on an amazing show for us this year; it's nearly over now, but it's been spectacular.

2. Getting back to knitting wool. I knit a lot of silk, cotton and linen during the warmer months, but my heart belongs to wool. My hands enjoy getting back to it, too.

3. Planning holiday menus.

4. Seeing Sara (she'll be here two weeks from today!)

5. Family gatherings (my mom arrives a week from yesterday for two weeks).

6. Lower humidity (good hair days :-)

7. Our anniversary. Marc and I will celebrate 33 years next week and that's not a very exciting milestone, but now we're only two years away from one that should be memorable!

8. Having a fire in the fireplace (haven't actually done this yet, but I think it might happen this weekend).

9. Snuggling.

10. Making lists like this one. being mindful of all the goodness. saying thank you.

Thank You Carole for getting us back together! If you'd like to join in the fun, click here to sign up.

  1. Those trees are stunning and it's hard to believe that they're nearly bare. We have lots of oaks that hold on to their leaves until almost December. Knitting wool and family visits are some of the best treasures of autumn!

  5. What a very beautiful photo/watercolour. It would make a stunning poster ... How lovely be seeing your Sara soon. My own daughter is coming for Christmas and I am so looking forward to those few days! We have had our fire on for a couple of weeks now - snow yesterday! A fire, snuggling and knitting just all seem to go together, somehow. And many congratulations on your wedding anniversary to come.

  11. 33 years! Oh my, the time does fly. And what better time of the year to wed than autumn?! So delighted for you that your Mom and Sara will be joining you in just a matter of days. Savor every precious moment, as I know you will.
    Cheers~
