And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.
But that’s not all….We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to each blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. That means you can enter over TWO HUNDRED times!!!
CLICK HERE for a list of participating sites. You have four days to visit each of them!

I’m personally giving away a $25 VISA gift card. To enter my giveaway, just leave a comment and tell me what you like most about Autumn and why.

What do I enjoy most about the Fall of the year?
Unlike most people who say they feel invigorated and renewed during the Spring, I feel that same sense of exhilaration  at the end of September. It usually lasts until the first snowfall.

I love the crisp Autumn air, the crinkling of leaves beneath my feet, the vast array of colors in vibrant shades of red, orange and russet. Autumn is when I’m itching to hike mountain trails with the sun warming my back. Building a campfire and roasting marshmallows. Sipping from a mug of steaming hot chocolate or aromatic Apple cider. Cooking big meals, opening the doors and windows during the day and closing them as nightfall adds a nip to the air. Wearing bulky sweaters. Rosy cheeks. Boots! I love boots . . . and warm jackets with big pockets. And scarves tied loosely around my neck. Long, hot bubble baths and soft, flannel jammies.

But most of all, I love crawling in bed next to my hubby and putting my cold feet on his legs because he’s like a human space heater. He snuggles pretty good, too!

It’s your turn. What do you like most about Autumn? Leave a comment for the $25 Visa GC at my site and make sure to visit the other participants for more great opportunities to win Swag!
