Sunday Social: All about Fall

Sunday Social
It's time for another week of Sunday Social and today we are talking all about fall!
Fall is quite possibly my favorite season.  
I'll be saying that again at winter, spring, and summer because let's face it I love every season.  
When the seasons change I'm reminded constantly of God's goodness and faithfulness. 
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens."  -Ecclesiastes 3:1
With that, let's get social. 
1. What is your favorite fall activity?
What isn't my favorite fall activity?  I love them all from the simplest crunch of walking through leaves to steaming mugs of hot chocolate in my hands.  I love the pumpkin picking and painting (I don't carve... I'm not into messy) and Friday night football.  I like walking out of my house in the morning to feel crisp air on my face and yet still being able to walk out of the house at night in tights and a cardigan.  Pretty much every fall activity- they are all my favorite.  

2. Do you follow a football team? If so, which one and why?
My blood runs garnet and black!  I'm a Carolina Gamecock and proud of it. 
Why?  It's a Stewart family thing.  
Why is the sky blue?  It just is.  
Here's Sister and I sporting our Gamecock pride yesterday. 
Yes, we know USC lost.  You can't win them all. 

3. What is something fun about fall in your area?
Festivals!  I absolutely love fall festivals!
As a Children's Director I planned our Fall Fest last year and loved every minute of it. 
Check back in October to see what I am planning for this year!

4. What are your favorite fall staple outfits?
Fall fashion is my favorite!  I love getting up on crisp and cool mornings and layering on my tights, boots, cardigans, and scarves.  Throwing on a tunic/dress with skinny jeans and some dark boots puts me in a happy place.  I love a classic fall look that is actually really comfortable too.  

5. What things are you looking forward to most about this coming fall season?
Experiencing sweet holidays with my boy.  

6. What is your favorite fall holiday? Tradition?
Thanksgiving.  It is such a special time in my family and I have so many memories of my precious family during a holiday where we all have had so many things to be thankful for.  The family all gathers around the table to eat a wonderful meal cooked by Mom & Sister.  After the meal we all stay put because we know what's coming.  Everyone from the youngest to the oldest gets to say everything that they are thankful for this year.  With close to 20 people around the table you have moments of laughter, and moments of true thankfulness.  Every year at least 3 people cry as we thank the Lord for his faithfulness to our family again and again.  It's a beautiful picture of life.

  1. Wow, you really love Fall. Our family gets together around Thanksgiving and we celebrate love, life, and each other. There are no leaves to crunch in South Florida. I would really like to experience the changing leaves, but I am not sure if I would like to give up being able to go to the beach in winter.

    1. I really do love fall, although I have to admit that being able to go to the beach during winter sounds absolutely delightful!

    1. My sister is a Chef and went to culinary school. She's very particular and her skills are way over my basic food skills head. I only cook very little.
