Autumn or Fall?

First things first, do you say Fall or Autumn?

I've always referred to the season following Summer as Fall, even though Autumn sounds simply beautiful and sophisticated, I just never think to use it.

After reading so many posts about Fall on my favorite blogs lately, I'm more excited than ever to see summer and the, more uncomfortable than normal, heat come to an end. Though Fall is still officially a few weeks away (September 22nd), I couldn't wait any longer to share a few Fall favorites of my own.

Gillian Grace Fall (October 2009)


So hard to believe that this is our same lil' Gillybean. She's grown and changed so much in the past year. I can't wait to repeat this photo shoot in a few months.

What are some of your Fall favorites?

I've always referred to the season as Fall, too, but you're right - Autum sounds much more sophisticated :)

I can't wait to see this year's fall pictures of your daughter!

I am LOVING all these pictures. I wish I could go out and buy a new Fall wardrobe. I was an assistant manager at Ann Taylor Loft for about 8 Months, and I spent probably 1/2 my paycheck on clothes, and we weren't even required to wear their clothes, ha! I hear their clothes are Fab now, I can;t go there-too dangerous for me, Ha!

I LOVE your pics of Gilly Bean. I saw the summer ones below it, and they are Beautiful and so Fun, and I LOVE Fall, I am so excited, really, but I am so sad for summer to be over. Our baby's first summer being one year old. I will miss is so much. I spent so much of it working, it just went way too fast!

Ugh, days gone by. These pics sure are getting me excited for Fall though.

Oh, and I say Fall, but I think it is officially "Autumn" as far as the names of the Seasons in School class. I agree it does sound better than Fall. Funny how we get alternate names for things, isn;t it.

And, Pottery Barn is like my dream home. I look at the magazines and pretend my home looks like that, ha!

Andrea said...

Oh my goodness gracious!!! I love love love Fall!!! And I say "Fall". I think Autumn sounds prettier, but I've never called it that. I love pumpkin patches and Halloween, and Thanksgiving, and just about everything else!

I Do Declare said...

I usually say Fall, too...but will use autumn if the aliteration makes sense (like in an upcoming post I'm writing - hee). We both need to digure out how to carve the W pumpkin - that is the cutest! Love all the photos - it's 65 here this morning and I'm finally feeling ready for the change of the season!

Karen said...

This made want to go get my cinammon spice plug in and plug it in! I love Fall!

Laura@Cowboy Boots said...

Lindsay said...

Ok this post excites me! :) My post today is on fall too :) I LOVE those tori burch shoes OMG wish list! :)

That's What She Said... (No, Really!) said...

I LOVE fall! I mean Autumn! :) I agree - Autumn sounds way classier! ha! These pictures have gotten me super excited for cooler weather, hay mazes, and apple cider!

Jumping Jack said...

I love Fall and after the hottest summer I can remember (20+ days with 100+ temps), Fall is welcomed with open arms here!

Oh and all things pumpkin and spicy. Just makes a house feel more like home!

Love the pics of Gillian!

OMG, LOVE this post! Captures every single fall favorite of mine. :) Those fall pics of GG are super cute too. :)

By the way, the little outfits the girls were wearing are from a small boutique in Statesboro (near my husband's grandmother's town) in Georgia, called Josephine's. :)

Meant to be a mom said...

I always say fall. I do like the sound of Autumn though.

I have to say that I love each and every one of the pictures you chose to represent this season. It really is a fun season, getting us all ready for Christmas.

The pictures of Gillian Grace are just the very best of all. :)

And I love the striped sweater in the first pic.
