Loving Autumn

Holiday_3One of my four favorite seasons is fully underway! We got our first real rain storm of the season last night, and the passes over Highways 4 and 108 are currently closed due to snow! Next thing you hear, the ski resorts will be up and running and the cold-season travelers will be exploring the Sierras en masse. Murphys will host its annual Grape Stomp (October 7th) and Christmas Open House (December 1st), which are always fun and full of entertainment!

One of my favorite parts of the season includes decorating for the holidays to come. I try to include all of my autumn decor in with the Halloween doo-dads, so that when All Hallow’s Eve has come and gone, all I need to do is remove that particular holiday’s decor and then I’m all set for Thanksgiving already!

Do you have any special decorations you like to use for the autumn holidays? Share your pictures of them with me on Facebook!┬áSee, because that’s also one of my favorite parts of the “holiday season” – checking out the creativity and skills of my friends and neighbors! Happy Autumn!
