Beauti-Fall Weekend

 Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.  ~Elizabeth Lawrence


We were in New England over the Columbus Day holiday weekend, and what greeted us was a visual feast of the beauty that is autumn!  The drive up had us "ooh-ing" and "aah-ing", a favorite reaction that was repeated throughout our stay.  :P  Can't help it.  We were enjoying great weather, scenic routes, crisp autumn air, blue skies, and a dazzling display of color-tinged leaves.  The wedding reception we attended was held outdoors, and the family's spacious backyard was transformed into a truly warm and inviting harvest celebration.   OMG!  Simply perfect!  


There's this song from Noggin that I've been singing along to... "I feel like I'm falling for fall."  Well I've fallen for fall.  I love it!  And to all fellow leaf peepers out there, it ain't over til the last leaf falls!

Do unto others...

I clip coupons, get them in the mail, or print them from store emails. I don't use them all, but I usually bring them anyway so that other people can benefit from them. I enjoy handing it out while standing in line at the check out counter.

Tonight, the lady in front of me handed me a coupon for the popcorn that I had in my cart. Just like that. She also told me that today is a triple-your-coupon day. What a treat! I just thought it was sooo cool!
