|This house is pretty. And so are the leaves. :)|
In Iowa, the weather was beautiful. The leaves hadn't started to turn colors yet, but fall was definitely in the air.
I returned to 90-degree weather in Phoenix. Now, I'm not complaining too much, because it means it'll only be in the 60s in December -- and since I'm not a fan of snow, this works for me.
But the mornings and evenings have started to hint at autumn, which is my favorite time of year (hmmm, maybe my birthday, anniversary, and Thanksgiving have something to do with this?).There's something fresh and crisp about the fall months.
To me, fall signals time to refocus my goals, to spend time with loved ones, to settle into the rest of the year...and lots of reading!! Because as it gets chillier (and yes, 60 degrees is chilly to me), I love curling up with books at night on my back porch.
So in contemplating all this, I thought...why not share the autumn love with books? And even better, a gift card to buy books (or whatever else makes you happy)!
I am so incredibly grateful to you, my readers, followers, and friends, and want to say thanks by running a giveaway. The prize is a $25 Amazon gift card. I'm running the giveaway through Rafflecopter on Facebook.
