  2. Hi Constance! Please sign me up for the giveaway! My favorite thing about Fall is specifically related to this year. My wife, Lydia, is trying her hand at homesteading down here in deep South Texas! She is raising young chickens, we just build a coop, she is just finishing her first summer of gardening (raised beds, lots of okra, and too many bugs), and we are considering rabbits. Lydia is a wonderful baker and cook, a terrific wife of 30 years, and a great mom to our 5 kids. She would so enjoy the steamer, apron, and mugs. I haven’t told her that I am entering her. Although, she has been spending time on your website and watching your youtube videos!

  6. Enter me please! I love Autumn/Fall. When I lived in PA I enjoyed the colors of the leaves changing and the cooler temps. I still love the scents and flavors that are associated with fall.

  8. Enter me. My favorite thing about the fall is the change in seasons: the mornings turn cooler and then become crisp with tinges of fireplaces’ burning. The rainbow of leaves turning to crunching burnt oranges and red rusts under my hiking boots.. gloves and layering my clothes with over-sized coats. And my thoughts and hopes begin looking for a brighter New Year. Jcf

  15. Constance, sign me up for the giveaway please! My favorite thing about Autumn is that it’s time to break out the pumpkins… I love to decorate the house and patio using them as well as a bale of straw and other colorful items and Fall flowers. I try to make a new wreath every year which I enjoy immensely,

    What I love about the Autumn is the cool air, warm sun and the changing colors of the leaves.

    Fall/Autumn is my favorite time of year because nothing feels better than waking up and sitting on the porch sipping hot chocolate. Fall pushes out the heat and humidity. It is also the start of all thing yummy. The smell of Soups, stews, and baking fill the air. I guess it’s just that comforting feeling that I love most. I love all the seasons but autumn by far is my favorite.

    You remind me so much of my oldest sister(she’s 10 years older than me). I’m 63. You sound like her and act like her. You’re both just sweet and so easy to talk to about anything!

    I love Fall because like you I love the change in temperatures. I prefer cooler weather over hot or warm. I love all the beautiful colors of leaves on all the trees(orange is my favorite color!). I love the smells outside and inside from all the delicious Autumn foods and holidays!

    I always look forward to your videos. I’ve learned so much from you.

  37. Hi Constance
    Autumn brings the slowing down of hard summer work. My preparations for the coming winter are completed. I love to sit in my back yard and feel the peace of all of the beauty God has created. The soft breeze on my face. The fluffy white clouds. The happy little sounds coming from my very content hens. Slowing down and enjoying the beauty of fall. ENTER ME
    Thank you.
