I smell burning leaves

Guess what time of year it is?

Maple Oat Nut Scones Time!! Every year I make these babies and every time autumn is over I get sad. But, they are part of what makes autumn so special so I don't mind waiting for a year to eat them. I recently listed out the reasons I love the fall. I would like to share them with you.

• The leaves turning colors
• The cool weather with a crisp breeze
• The smell of burning leaves
• The crispness of the air
• The smell of vanilla, cinnamon, and apples
• Maple Oat Nut Scones
• Fall colors in stores and in their ads- reds, browns, golds
• Taking out the fall decorations
• Celebrating an anniversary with my husband
• The smell of cider
• The smell of nutmeg and pumpkin
• Halloween
• The sound of crunching leaves under foot
• The smell of face paint (Halloween)
• Halloween party at work
• Planning the Halloween party at work
• Trick-or-treaters
• Football season
• Fires in the fireplace
• Sweaters and socks
• Cute knitted hats
• Sweatshirts
