Falling in Love....AGAIN.....

The Lake.... Gazebo on the Lake at The Farmhouse...
Child's Pl ayhouse
Pump House
Me and all of the Girls!!

With autumn...that is!

Isn't it such a glorious time of the year as the nights become shorter and the sound of crunching leaves can be heard underfoot? When the aroma of burning fire wood can be enjoyed and the crackling fire from the fireplace/fire pit brings warmth and beauty.... When the glorious sight of autumn leaves has the most sceptical of human beings brought to the realization of the Creator who created it... Oh, how I am in love with all of the beauty that fall has to offer!

I would like to share some pictures of a trip we enjoyed last October with special friends at their farmhouse. As you can see, there was much to be appreciated with so much beauty, and at times, it was overwhelming to know that God gave all of this beauty to us to remind us of Him and His awesome majesty! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, and hope you get to enjoy a similar get away weekend soon!

Your friend has a beautiful place. I love fall too.. I kept thinking I needed a nice weekend off somewhere to enjoy it, but then I realized, I can enjoy it right here. I live in the country and it is beautiful all around me! this is the time of year we seem to like to count our blessings.. I wonder why more so now then in the spring and summer??
