This weeks SPF is all about the changing of the seasons. I love the Fall (now that I'm no longer in school)! So let's just jump right in!

1.) Show me your season changing.

This is my little pumpkin tree that I made out of stuff on the clearance rack at the craft store the first year my hubby and I were married. It was our very first holiday as a married couple and this and a pumpkin were all that we could afford to do. I liked it so much that I put it out every year. It reminds me of how far we've come in the 6 years we've been married. Halloween is also my very favorite holiday, so when the weather starts to change along with the leaves, I know that it's Fall and that it's time to decorate the front porch to try and scare the bejeezus out of all the neighborhood kids!

2.) Show me the beauty of where you call home.

This is the house I grew up in (as seen from the creek in the back yard). My parents still live there. No matter where I live, this will always be home. I love this picture and how the house and trees are captured in the reflection on the water. We almost hung it upside down!

3.) Your favorite part of the weather changing.

This is my hoodie sweatshirt. I love this thing. I would sleep in it if I didn't think I'd sweat to death! I won it for winning an online scavenger hunt 2 years ago (beginning on Halloween, no less!) for a car-type group online for a specific kind of car that I own. I love my car. It looks mean (at least that's what my brother said when he saw it). The sweatshirt has their emblem on it and says "United Society of 3000GT and Stealth Owners - - 'Faster Than You'". (just for clarification, I own the Mitsubishi 3000GT vr-4...not the stealth...HA!)(hmm, I think I'm a little bit of a car snob)(and also, I'm addicted to parenthases)(and also baking 1:40am). Anyway, every year at the first sign of cold weather, I yank this off it's coat hanger and wear it until it's just too hot to breath!

Well that's about it for me! Did you play?! Huh? Did ya?!

I LOVE that you have that little pumpkin tree. It's great that you keep putting it out every year, and that it reminds you of that first Halloween!

I love cozy clothes too. It's just so nice to snuggle into them.

Great SPF!
