Saturday Sparks Link Party 133

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 133!

Fall is in the air and apparently on the minds of many people. Blogland is filled with all things Autumn and I am loving it! There's something about the changing of the seasons that lifts the spirit and renews the soul.

 "Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile."
~ William Cullen Bryant

 Now, lets get this weeks party started.
