For those of you who don't follow me on Facebook, I have decided to cancel Fave Friday. It gets hard picking blogs and I always feel like I have left someone out! So I decided to change it with "Friday Share" where I will share something completely random about me, life, or anything in general!
This week was the first day of fall. I have been living in my house now for 2 years. Fall is my favorite time of the year! I am not sure if it's because I know my birthday is near, or the thought that the holidays are just around the corner. I have always wished to live somewhere that the trees actually change colors (Miami does not exactly change with the seasons). So for the past 2 years on the first day of fall I hang a scarecrow on my front gate. It makes me feel like the season is here even though it may not seem like where I live. Last night I walked in Scarecrow in hand and my husband immediately knew the drill.
I think my love for the holidays comes from my parents! They always cook the BEST Thanksgiving Dinners I have ever tasted, and my dad always says the best prayer that night! Next is Halloween and my dad LOVES to dress up and scare all the little kids as they come to get candy. Me and my mom always have to be the nice ones and tell them he is just a regular guy! :o) And well then there is Christmas which is just AMAZING!!! My mom puts up a Macy's Christmas tree and a village that you would not believe unless you saw it in person. The outside is nothing less of a Christmas Theme park with so many lights I remember not being able to turn on the blow dryer when I lived there.
So that is my love for the holidays in a nutshell. I have included some photos below so you can see a little about what I am talking about. All the way at the bottom you will find today's card! In honor of my Front Gate Scarecrow.
