I wrote this post almost 2 years ago, just before my little granddaughter Sofia was born! Since the Autumnal Equinox is on Monday, I thought I would share it again for Fun Friday this week! There are lots of links that you can follow to past craft posts and past recipes. I will link to a few other ones below. I hope you enjoy the memories!
Hello from California! I am with Alicia waiting for her new baby girl to be born! Since today is the first day of Fall, we are all working together on our Friday Fave post for our favorite season. I know that some people feel like Fall is the favorite holiday of too many people, so they want to be different. Or, maybe they don't like pumpkin or pumpkin pie spice. But, around here at 3 Winks, we love the fall for so many reasons. So, today's Friday Fave question is perfect for us:
What is your favorite thing about Fall?
It was funny because when I asked my girls this question, Alicia and Lindsey each gave me an almost identical response. They both said that in the Fall there are a lot of things to celebrate and reasons to get together with family. We have an extra abundance of reasons to get together in our family because all 3 of my daughters and one of my daughters-in-law have birthdays in October. Then, there is Halloween, Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving. As Lindsey put it, Fall signifies the start of the holiday season! You bake yummy food and spend more time with family. In many places, not necessarily in Phoenix, the world changes color and the air is crisp and wonderful! You get to start wearing scarves and gloves.
I was surprised that the first thing that Lindsey mentioned wasn't pumpkins! If you read Renny's Recipes, you know of her love of all things pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. It was heart warming to see that she and Alicia thought of family first! But, Lindsey did mention that in the Fall she can eat pumpkin things without being judged!
Maddy also surprised me. I thought that she would mention Halloween first since she loves Halloween. That isn't surprising because her whole childhood she had Halloween themed birthday parties. But, actually the first thing she said that she loves about the season is making Fall crafts. You can see examples of her crafts here and here!
Here is what I love about Fall.
Don't forget to order your molds for Hot Cocoa Bombs here! They are on sale for a good price right now!
Because we love Fall so much, we decided to make a print to celebrate the season and share it with you, our readers! We collected all of the things that we love about the Fall and put them into one beautiful reminder created by Alicia! We hope that you love it!
Welcome Fall! Enjoy the season everyone! Click the photos below for more Fun Friday Ideas! (Or any day really!)

I love the Fall Colours in North America and thank you for sharing your photos with us. I'm in Spring in Australia now but I do drool over the Fall colours. Thanks for sharing at #BloggersPitStop

Your favorites are mine, too! :) I guess if I had to pick one "favoritist" thing about fall, it would just be the cozy factor: cozy clothes, cozy fires, cozy foods, cozy air. I am ALL about the cozy. (See, "why summer is not my favorite.") Happy fall to you...stopping by from #Coffee&Conversation!

Visiting from Coffee and Conversation. I love fall too. October is my birthday month and I started a tradition of doing a photo a day. My favorite thing about fall is pumpkin everything. Your printable is so cute. Thanks for sharing.

Lots of people love fall as it is the cooling down period after the hot days of summer. For me though, I wish we could have summer all year! Just this morning I could tell a change in the air, the trees and leaves look different and the temp was lower. Thank you Helen for linking up at the #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty. I shared your post on Pinterest and Twitter.

Love your reasons for loving fall. The thing I like best in fall is here in AZ the weather cools down and I can walk more often outside. Yahoo. Visiting you from Traffic Jam Weekend. Have a hoot this autumn.
