There’s a train that comes running by daily. To most, that would come as an annoyance. I hear it today and I am comforted. Autumn comes to mind. That’s when we moved here. Last year.

The sweltering heat, freeze pops, blowing of fans, and sandals pass with each click-clack of the tracks; inviting crisp, cool air, warm meals, snuggles, boots and a new beginning in the same home.

    Nice..I love the smell of cinnamon-y candles. Oh..and please don't keep those crockpot recipes to yourself. I want to bring in this new season with some fresh new cooking ideas. :-) I have to prepare some hefty meals for my big boys.

    I cannot wait for fall. We also moved into our home in fall while I was pregnant with my oldest, so every year when we decorate for Halloween, it reminds me of the time that our life was full of new beginnings.

    I am such a fall and winter person and I am craving some crisp air. We are still in the 90's in SC. I bought one of the new fall candles by Glade and it smells like November in a jar. Love it. Love your sweet little post :)

    Ah, fall. I can't wait! It's getting dark sooner, the air has that crisp smell to it, and those weird bugs are chirping more at night. Fall is just around the corner, whee!

      I changed my desktop wallpaper to something more season suitable a few weeks ago and I pulled out the decor today. I just need some more cinnamon-y candles and crockpot recipes!
