Celebrating Fall: Shameless Plug for myself AND my first GIVEAWAY!!!

Summer is my favorite, but coming in at a close 2nd is Fall!!! I didn't really get to enjoy Summer this year, as I had a lot on my plate. So I intend to embrace Fall... and now it's here!
In Southern California, our fall can be questionable. But *sometimes* we get those perfect Fall days. I love visiting the Pumpkin Patch as many times as possible, going a few miles up the road to Oak Glen to pick apples and raspberries, taking a walk and crunching on leaves... and mostly all of the different scents that the season brings. Crisp, fresh air, cookies or pies baking in the oven, comfort foods, warm stew, pumpkin pie and spices, delicious coffee to drink all day long during the cool weather. All of the scents bring back such a sense of nostalgia... memories of a time before adult hood, when life was simpler, and worries were scarce.
What are your favorite things about Fall?
Which leads me to my "Shameless Plug"... As part of my 'bored housewife syndrome' (though I haven't been bored in a LONG time now) I became an Independent Demonstrator for Gold Canyon. I have adored the products for years, so I figured, why not sell it? I do demonstrate at parties for my customers, and it's a lot of fun! But, truth be told, I'm one of my best customers, LOL! All of the candles are made from the highest quality paraffin or soy. They have a wonderful line of plant-based cleaning supplies, and numerous other products for your fragrance needs. Check it out online! My website is
