For Goodness Sake…Where is Fall?

OK, tomorrow is the last day of September. So far this month, I have attended football games in shorts, picked apples in 90 degree heat and found pumpkin spice coffee far from appealing. Where are you, Fall? School has started, the leaves have a slight tingle of scarlet, you can buy pumpkins at farm stands along the road (you can also buy Christmas decor at Target, but I’ll leave that for a other times) and my boots stand ready to go. Summer, you had your day in the sun. I love you but it’s time to move on. I’m ready for sweater weather, chilly evenings with a fire, steamy cups of hot cider and crunchy leaves. I can see Fall peeking around the corner, but Fall needs to come out already…I don’t want to swelter in the pumpkin patch.

Dressed up and ready for Fall family fun.

Picking apples in the sweltering heat was still magical.

  1. Ah, Amy! Here in Chicagoland we had 90’s last week, this week has been 70-80s or rain(4 days so far). Evenings are finally cooling off—yes, crazy year…and it was hot for a lot. We went from furnace to air-conditioning in a matter of a week. Love your Fall decor, especially your Leaf quilt, that is lovely!


  2. I agree this weather needs to go away! It is still in the 90’s here in SE Texas as well but relief is on the way next week it looks like. Love your fall touches!


  3. We’re sweltering as usual down in the SC Lowcountry. But it was gorgeous on our trip to Chicago last week- 60s and low 70s are the magic numbers for fall clothes with no jacket! #littlecottagelinkparty


  4. Amy, we are asking the same question here in Austin! It’s not unusual for September to be warm here, but we are more than warm. The heat has broken all records for highs in September here in Austin. Hottest September on record.
    Fun to see your sweet family. The little princess is growing up! Happy Fall!


  5. Oh my goodness I am right there with you! My heart is actually aching for the season I love so much. It feels so wrong to see fall color and pumpkins in 90 degree weather. It has been too hot for cider and I don’t even like going to the football games because it’s too hot and humid in the evenings! Hopefully fall temps will arrive soon and stay!

    Beautiful fall decor! Thanks for sharing at All About Home!


  6. I’m hanging onto summer for as long as I can, don’t care how hot it gets, the heat makes my bones, joints, and muscles feel better!! Thanks so much for linking up at the #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 5. Shared.

  7. I’m so with you, can’t wait for sustained cooler weather and colored leaves! Looks like that will be next week here in my part of the midwest. Great family photo — Princess is growing up so fast! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen


  8. Oh man, its been hot in the south too, but I am going to enjoy the warmth as long as possible. The cold just kills me. A happy medium of 87 degrees would be nice!
