Happy First Day of Autumn!

Pin It Now!


Autumn, originally uploaded by Romantic Home.

It's the first day of Autumn and I know that makes many of us so happy! It's such a wonderful time of the year! It doesn't really start to feel like Autumn here in Northern California until about mid October though.

It's the first day of Autumn but it's the last day of my 40s! Tomorrow I will be 50! I'm fine with it because I have a feeling that my 50s are going to be amazing! I really think I've found the secret to happiness! Do you want to know what it is? YOU MAKE YOUR OWN HAPPINESS! It's easy and it's amazing! It really works!

Happy Autumn everyone!!! and to my friends "down under" Happy Spring!

Your mosaic is gorgeous! Wow what amazing colors. Happy birthday to you. I wish I was in your place...I am on my last month of my 50's. I'm holding on to each and everyday I have left! LOL

Enjoy your special day! It's going to be back in the 90's in my part of California. I was enjoying the cool down and so was my garden.
