I love this time of year.
I love all the leaves falling everywhere (this is because I don’t rake them, I know.)
I love all the thankful and grateful post.
I love watching all the Thanksgiving episodes of Gilmore Girls and West Wing.
(I want Amy Sherman-Palladino and Aaron Sorkin to have a TV baby together.
And I want to be their set designer. Or coffee fetcher.)
And that in just a few weeks I will be watching all the Christmas episodes.
I love that I can now wear boots and sweaters and scarves.
I love that thanks to my friend Andrea I now know how to plant bulbs for the spring.
I love the pumpkin candles and a fire in our fireplace and all the pots of chili, and soup, and chicken and dumplings on the stove.
I love that the time has come to legitimately start getting excited about pie. And decorations. And holiday parties. And cookie exchanges. And gift making.
Do you love this time of year as well or is it just me?
Guess what makes a great gift?
