    Halloween candy is the best part of autumn – I buy stuff early while there’s choice, tend to make a big dent in it so that it has to replenished to have anything to hand out to kids. Oh, and russet apples. They’re the best but don’t store well, so they’re an autumn-only treat.

    Thank you for the giveaway!!

    I love many things about fall, but one of the best things is that the mosquitoes finally go away!

    We went apple picking with friends today, and that’s always a nice trip. Also fall is cooking season for me. I love filling my freezer with soups and cookie dough and all kinds of meals. That way, when the winter blahs hit, I can just pop some soup I’m the microwave, dive back under my blanket, and read on without worrying about getting to the store in the snow.

    Looking at the foliage. It is consolation for the fact that summer is over. And reading, always reading.

    I’m all about the pumpkin lattes from Starbucks and this is the only time of year that I “allow” myself to eat candy. I love when the air gets crisp and I can bring out the fuzzy blankets and settle in with my dog in my lap, a good book and a warm drink :)

    Barney’s Beauty Event is my Favorite fall activity. I got really confused this year as it’s in October and not November

  7. Marcy Shuler
    Oct 06, 2013 @ 18:18:02

    Well, if I’m being totally honest…I love snitching candy from the Halloween stash. LOL

    Since i live in New Hampshire, leaf peeping is everyday! Hot, mulled apple cider with a dash of rum! Apple picking with the kiddos, and finding the perfect pumpkin at the farm stand!

    I love going to apple orchards, probably because before I moved to the Midwest I had never been to one.

    I love walking in the fall leaves and taking photographs of the amazing color. If I had unlimited money I’d have homes all over the globe and move to each one as fall begins, that is how much I love it! I also LOVE stayman winesap apples. YUM!

    Balance reading and knitting. Even better learning to knit while reading. When that doesn’t work, tune up an audible book and do both!

  21. Karina G.
    Oct 06, 2013 @ 19:49:32

    My favorite part is Halloween and seeing what my little nieces and cousins will be dressed as. Its always so freaking funny and cute!

    There is so much I love about autumn that it’s had to pick just one. Halloween, Thanksgiving, cooler weather, sweaters, the leaves turning beautiful colors, more time to read, fall baking. I could go on and on. My favorite season. Thank you so much for the generous give-away!

  29. Stephanie F.

    Oct 06, 2013 @ 21:13:12

    I enjoy the autumn flavored treats (pumpkin, apple, etc) though eating the Halloween candy that’s suppose to be handed out comes in close ;)

    Oct 06, 2013 @ 23:57:56

    Baking, definitely baking, my house isn’t air conditioned and summer is just too hot to run the oven any more often than absolutely necessary. So cool weather brings back cookies and cakes and fresh bread and all the good stuff. Getting to curl up with a book and some hot tea and a couple cookies is an really nice way to spend an evening.

  41. Denise Van Plew

    Thanks for the give away!

  60. CG
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 07:13:58

    One of my favorite things about fall is spending time in the kitchen making hearty soups that make the house smell yummy. For some reason this makes me feel all cozy and warm.

  61. Suz Glo
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 07:50:21

    Visiting an apple orchard in the NC mountains. I come home with 30+ pounds of delicious, fresh picked apples but, I must admit, I look forward to the homemade apple donuts and apple cider just as much.

  69. LK

    No fall activities here. xD
    Recently the haze has been really bad, not much of outdoor activities done.

  70. Laura C
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 10:31:25

    As silly as this is, I love grabbing a pumpkin spiced latte at starbucks and slowly moving into a peppermint mocha. I cant wait to be back in seattle where the leaves turn and pumpkin patches are a whole day of activity!

  71. Jen
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 10:33:29

  74. Ggrace
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 11:11:18

    Oct 07, 2013 @ 11:12:42

    October is the best month ever! I love the leaves when they turn color–especially the giant yellow ones, Day of the Dead stuff. I like it from the skeezy stuff to the kid stuff. We always have a pumpkin carving party and get candy for the neighbor’s kids. :)

  76. ikkinlala
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 11:18:47

  79. Kerryn Reid
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 11:43:05

    Way back when I lived in Massachusetts, it was the apples, and scuffing through the maple leaves on the ground. Now that I live in Florida, I settle for slightly cooler temperatures — and the candy!

  80. DeeAnn K
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 11:49:56

    I love spending more time outdoors in the cooler weather. Camping and geocaching are my favorites.

  81. Claire

    In France, we don’t really celebrate Hallowwen. But in that season, I enjoy cinnamon cookies and hot chocolates.

  82. Katie
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 12:44:40

    I absolutely adore fall, I can’t wait until the leaves turn all shades of red, orange and yellow. Hmmm, and all those hours spent reading. Sigh.

  83. Jaime C
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 12:45:28

    I love the cooler weather, the colors of the leaves turning, the smells coming from my kitchen, and warm sweaters!

    Oct 07, 2013 @ 14:19:00

    Having lived in the same house for thirty years, watching the two huge maple trees in my yard change color has become my favorite thing about fall AND about my home. They turn an unusually dark orange – gorgeous! – plus they hold their leaves longer than any other trees in the neighborhood. As long as there are still leaves on those branches, I can deny the approach of winter.

  89. Jessica
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 14:21:39

    Baking. This week was apple cinnamon muffins.

    Oct 07, 2013 @ 14:49:44

    My netbook died when I spilt a giant latte on it recently. My 1st gen Kindle is not charging due to loose port connection. I am so disconnected! I am sooo busy I can’t spend time researching devices. So if I win, it will make it very easy for me….the choice would be taken out of my hands.

    2013 NFL season (so far) is outstanding! Halloween is coming up and I am going to a fantastic party that has been terrific every year. I am going as Kate Daniels, I have the BEST prop sword and the coolest boots!

    My best friend is having her first baby this fall after trying for one for fifteen years. She’s 44. It’s a miracle!

    This is the best time of the year!

  93. Michelle - Snarky Mom

  94. The_Book_Queen
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 16:30:04

    Ooh…enjoying a good mug of hot cocoa. Trying out new recipes to bake. Eating far too much (which I then regret later, but that’s a different story entirely). Watching the leaves turn and taking walks in the crisp air. I could go on and on! :)


  95. Lindsay
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 17:44:44

    All of the pumpkin flavored treats at Trader Joes!!!

    Oct 07, 2013 @ 22:28:48

    Even though it’s spring where I live, I’ve enjoyed reading about the fall activities in the American part of the world. I also love that it’s football season (and that we can enjoy at least some games via ESPN.)

  107. Katie
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 22:55:59

    This year, I’m pretty excited about wearing lots of pretty, new sweaters! In general, though, I love being able to drink lots and lots of tea.

  108. E. Isaacs
    Oct 07, 2013 @ 23:09:19

    Gardening! Fall is the perfect time to plant new stuff in your garden if you live in California. Much better than spring.

    Also, now it’s cool enough that I can start wearing all extravagant scarves again with long romantic skirts and dresses.

  109. Alexandra A

  122. Jane Faith
    Oct 09, 2013 @ 07:47:17

    nothing’s better than curled up in your favorite spot in the house or even under the shade of a beautiful tree with a good book in your hand. :)

  123. Inga
    Oct 09, 2013 @ 07:59:06

  124. Jae Lee
    Oct 09, 2013 @ 08:31:10

    Yay fall. I love being able to bake again. NYC summers are disgusting, even when temps aren’t too high and the thought of turning on my oven makes me want to cry. But once the cooler weather settles in, oh yes. It’s cookie time. Also, pie and cake time.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  125. Desiree putaski
    Oct 09, 2013 @ 08:46:13

    I love fall because the weather gets cooler and there is plenty of football on the weekends…which means more reasons to invite people over and make hot wings! LOL

    I’m British, we don’t really do halloween as much as you do in the US. My favourite thing about autumn was always walking through a park and kicking up piles of leaves.

    I love to visit the local cider mill (unimaginatively named the Cider Mill) for hot, spiced cider and yummy donuts.

    Favorite fall activity is just going on nice evening walks. I’m in Texas and the summer is so hot it’s always nice when fall rolls in and we can enjoy the outdoors again! Love seeing all the leaves change and seeing all the oranges and reds.

    My favorite fall activities include celebrating my anniversary (fall is our favorite season so we wanted an autumn wedding), eating “fall” desserts, and watching the leaves turn colors!

    Not necessarily my favorite thing about Fall, but since you mentioned Halloween candy I’ll confess that I love stocking up on the stuff at steep discount in the days after the holiday. That may be tied with how much I love handing it out on Halloween and seeing all the costumed kids. :)

    I love the changing of the trees, football and passing out the candy. My neighborhood has tons of little ones and they always dress so cute. I love to see them come around with their parents :)

    I love autumn dinners: hearty soups, slow-cooked ribs, sweet spices like ginger and cinnamon and nutmeg, and apples go with everything!

    Hard to pick a favorite fall activity…overall, it’s getting outside again after the summer heat, so working in the garden, kicking through the leaf piles, taking walks, stuff like that.

    Fall is such a wonderful time of year. Autumn color, high school football games, craft shows, the kids in their Halloween costumes, so many things to enjoy.

    Favorite fall activity? I have a love/hate relationship with NaNoWriMo, during which I eat way too much of the candy I was supposed to have given out on Halloween.

    Enjoying the cool crisp air, the blinding blue sky, the vibrant red and yellow colors of leaves, the smell of fresh picked apples (which will turn into the the smell of baking apple pie).

    Fall in Florida is the start to cooler weather! My favorite activity? Turning off the AC and opening the windows.

    Easter takes place in fall (autumn) where I live and hot cross buns are in the bakeries for weeks beforehand. I love eating them. I also love that autumn means temperatures are dropping. Not looking forward to yet another stinking hot summer.

    I recently found your blog and already in love with it. Favorite fall activity is curling on the sofa with a cup of hot coco and a warm blanket. It doesn’t get very cold in Las Vegas but it’s chilly. And of course reading some romance novels!! I’m not carving pumpkins this year but hopefully next year. Definitely eating candy before Halloween that’s if my mom doesn’t finish them before me ;)

    Mainly college football and the major league baseball playoffs and World Series. We also try to take a low-season pre-winter vacation each year: Nantucket, Montreal, etc.

    Fall is my favourite time of the year, nothing like watching the change of the seasons and how it affects nature and everything else. Also watching the kiddies who’ve dressed up for Halloween. Of course that’s just an excuse to eat more chocolate, quality control y’know.

    I’m such a kid (though I’m really 47) — I adore Halloween. We decorate the yard, carve pumpkins, help run the fall/Halloween block party, and revel in the weather.

    My favourite thing to do in the fall is sit in front of a log fire, sipping hot cinnamon tea and reading!!
