|The Boys of Fall aka Backyard Boys|
It's no secret that I love this time of year (as previously mentioned here)! The weather (in California) is still lovely and warm during the day. The boys have a blast being able to play in the backyard any time (translation: Kellan tries desperately to crawl after his big brother who is busy catapulting himself from one end of the yard to the other), without the intense Summer heat interfering. The evenings are cool and crisp and at dusk you start to smell the first fires of the season cropping up around the neighborhood. What is it about the familiar smell of a wood burning fireplace in the cold of night that is so comforting? And the cooler nighttime temps can only lead to cozier sleep thanks to an extra quilt or two on the bed.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE me some long days of Summer. And Winter brings the best holiday of them all, as far as I'm concerned. But there is just something about Fall. It truly is the best of both worlds (sorry, Spring, you haven't been around much in the last few years so I am nixing you from this blost).

AND, the scenery is amazing. Although Mr. Razzi (my husband and resident leaf raker) would beg to differ (we have three ginormous trees in front of our house that shed from the end of August until the end of time), all the leaves, that come in a plethora of Autumn hues, are just fantastic.
Enough about my favorite season. What is yours and why? I'd love to read what you share in the comment section below!
