Happy Halloween & a Few Things of my Favorite Things About Fall

Happy Halloween!  Now that our kids aren't quite so little, we enjoy dressing up our dogs.  They seem to enjoy it.  Really, they enjoy anything that gets attention from their people.  And the treats.  They enjoy the treats the most!

Fall is just exploding here in NJ right now and I want to capture it all before it is gone.  There are so many things I love about fall.   

Fall picnics.
 Adirondack chairs with plaid blankets and crisp leaves.
  My boys in flannel shirts.
Birch bark with yellow leaves.
Painted mini pumpkins on the porch.
The tire swing in front of our house.

Weekends in Upstate NY with long rides with my teenager down country roads while he practices driving and I take pictures.  Most importantly, the conversations that we don't take time for back home in NJ that happen along the way.

Apple picking at our favorite orchard in Vermont.


And cool evenings by the fire.
What are some of your favorite things about fall?  I hope you have a very Happy Halloween!!

  1. Courtney,
    Your golden boys are adorable dressed for fall. How cute are those carmel apples with the tree branches for sticks. So cute. Have a great fall day.

    1. Hi Kris,

      I love to dress up those silly golden. Doesn’t the stick make such a difference with the caramel apples? That’s the first year we did that. Rainy day here in NJ and all of those beautiful leaves are falling.

      I just wanted to thank you yet again for the feature last weekend. I met some great people and found some new blogs I am loving. You really have a following of some of the kindest people I have come across on the internet. I hope you are having a great weekend!

  5. Your blog is just beautiful, Courtney. I love the name you have chosen because it sure seems right. You really have some handsome golden boys and the doggies are wonderful in their costumes. This will be our first Halloween in 13 years that our big golden boy wont be with us. He was a big fan of Halloween and loved to greet the kids at the door and sneak a peek into their candy stashes..Have a Happy Halloween and enjoy the beautiful colors..Judy
