My Favorite Thing About Fall

 We have a winner! First, thank you all so much for taking part in the Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop - I've had a great time reading your comments and chatting with you all! Second, we have a winner - I stuck all the names in a hat and pulled out Kaci V's name. Kaci, look for an email from me to receive your prize! And, everyone, just because you didn't win here, doesn't mean you didn't somewhere else. Check in with Carrie Ann's Bloghops to see if you're a winner...   

    Hiya, readers! I'm taking part in the Autumn's Harvest blog hop this weekend ~ now through November 12th hop around, read some fabulous blogs and win some GREAT prizes (details below).
     My absolute favorite thing about fall is in the picture to the left - the changing colors, the crunchy leaves I walk through, the chill in the air early in the morning. I grew up in south-central Missouri where fall..isn't. Growing up the weather would go from Indian Summer days of 75+ temperatures into the temperature basement of 35 and below. No happy medium. The leaves would fall, of course, but very rarely did we get the range of colors that I get now that my family has moved to Northern Ohio.
     Autumn also means books - lots and lots of books. Because, really, who doesn't like curling up in a favorite chair with a cup of tea or cocoa and a fuzzy blanket and reading the day away? If you're looking for a fun read to warm up a cool Autumn night, check out my Texas-set reunion story, What a Texas Girl Wants: 

    Kathleen Witte is a down-to-earth girl. She has to be, with the family ranch on the verge of success. After seven months of keeping it all together by swearing off men, however, Kathleen needs a bit of fun in the sun. Waking up with a husband she can’t remember isn’t how she planned to blow off steam.
    The last thing Jackson Taylor wants in his life is a down-to-earth girl. He has four weeks of freedom in which to find his birth mother. He’s done well avoiding commitment until now, so when he wakes up on a Mexican beach with Kathleen his first reaction is curiosity. When he spies the matching wedding rings on their left hands curiosity turns to concern.
    Neither Jackson nor Kathleen want to stay married, but when her family shows up, they have no choice. Once back in Texas, however, can they keep this all-business marriage from turning into an all-consuming love?

     So, readers, what is your favorite thing about fall? Leave a comment below, along with your email address, for a chance to win a $5 Amazon giftcard!
