Fall Weddings are the Best

Hi all, Reagan Summerside here. 
Guess what! Walker Boone and I are getting married...finally and yep, there’s a murder in the works and a dead body right in the middle of it all. 
But let’s not think of that right now. Let’s think of the wedding part. I love Savannah all year long but to me fall is a truly fave time of year. That’s why I decided to get married in September. So let me tell you a bit about the fave time of year. 
-The first day of deer season is a holiday.
-You switch from AC to turning on the heat all in the same day.
-You finally get away from things that stick, craw and bit you to pieces. 
-You help grandma with puttin’ up tomato and okra from the garden. Sure going to taste great on the Thanksgiving table.
-You look at the pics you took at the state festivals named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.
-You’re getting fav pic together from family reunions to put on the Christmas cards.
-You make room in the freezer for all the garden goodies so you can enjoy them al year long.
-You know to keep an eye out for the 10,000 known types of spiders in the South, plus some no one has ever seen before because they’re coming in you house right now.
-You know there are 5,000 types of snakes on Earth and 4,998 live real close by and hiding in the woodpile
-You take granddaddy’s shotgun out for a run. 
-You start thing about who’s going to host Thanksgiving dinner and do you need a new dining room table so everyone can fit. 
-The kids are finally back in school and you have two minutes of peace and quiet. 
This is how you can tell its fall in Savannah but what about where you live? How can you tell it’s autumn in your neck of the woods? Let me know and I’ll give away two Demise in Denim totes from the answers. Happy fall y’all.

  1. Fall is the most wonderful season where I live. The heat has lessened and the bright, blue skies and sunshine make walks in the foothills ideal. Fall involves the renowned Balloon Fiesta. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  2. Lo ove this series! Looking forward to Resgan and Walker's wedding. Fall here in the Midwest is a beautiful time if the year. Apple picking, the pumpkin patch and drives in the country to see the beauty of the leaves changing on the trees.

  3. Many signs of Fall where I live, like much shorter evenings, chilly mornings when you wonder if you should have covered the tomatoe plants the night before, and crows beginning to flock. But the most iconic sign of Fall here is the sound of flocks of Canada geese, high above in a 'v' shape, winging their way south to warmer places. For several weeks we see and hear them, often seeing huge flocks of them feeding on harvested fields of grain.

  4. Here we joke that we can tell it's summer when our elderly neighbor on the corner (a really nice guy) sits out in his garage with a beer, waiting for whoever is out and about to drop by to visit. It's fall when it's too cold for him to sit outside. So far it's still officially summer, though some days the weather can't make up its mind.

  5. Cooler weather and fall foliage

  6. Here in MN it starts getting dark earlier and earlier. The leaves change colors. You have to turn off the heat because the temps rise to the 80s for a few days and then drop back to the 50s. You put all the green tomatoes in paper bags and in a cool spot in the basement so they will ripen. You watch the news for frost warnings.

  7. It will be 90 degrees in the morning then 69 degrees in the afternoon. The bugs stop biting and the AC can get a rest. We really only get about a week of this and then we move directly to winter.
