    Happy February Stroll! Indeed we are strolling along through February. But when I think about the word "stroll" I think about one specific time of year that yes I do "love" as we continue to talk about the love we have for all different times of the year!

    In honor of Valentine's Day we continue our talk about the love we have for different seasons by talking about summer today. Yes, I love summer. In fact, the last several years I get lost in summer a bit and almost don't want to leave it. I'm not sure why but I almost feel sad as it ends even though the Bers are just beginning when it ends and all the best stuff of the year is coming. But summer is a very unique and special time of year. You run your a/c and have warm summer nights. Hopefully lots of sunshine. Yes it gets humid and hot. But it's different. It's not hot and humid here for most months of the year so it's different. Usually I consider May through September as the 5 months that are mostly warm and/or hot. And I enjoy it because the other 7 months of the year not so much. Something about summer always makes me feel like a kid again too and I appreciate that feeling. It's hard to recreate all the magical fun of summer as a kid. Do you love summer? Tell us today in the Hang Out!

    And even though some of us may not love the heat many of us do appreciate the longer days and it being lighter out longer. And of course those summer vacations! Have a great February Stroll!​

    I love summer too...less of a hectic schedule and more relaxing it seems. I love to sit out on our deck, enjoy the warm weather and trips to the beach.

    We love going to the beach in the summer also. We have several trips already planned. I'm looking forward to a wonderful summer.

    Happy Dozen Days of February! Into (almost) the middle of the month now we continue talking about times of the year we "love" this Valentine's Week. And today we talk about 99% of our favorite season of the 4!

    Autumn. Enough said. Do I even need to post about this? I think you all love Autumn more than the other 3 seasons (by far). No matter how many of you love spring, summer or winter 99% of you probably love Autumn more than all the other 3 seasons combined. Of course, winter has it's positives with Christmas Eve/Day in the beginning of it. Spring and summer do too which we talked about the last couple of days. But Autumn? It has everything. It has the leaves turning, cooler weather (but not too cold yet), apple picking, pumpkins, Halloween, Thanksgiving and much, much more. Autumn has football season and tons of fun autumn activities. Most of us crave Autumn all year. There is something very special about Autumn. There is a feeling it gives off which none of the other seasons can give us. And I love it. I love Autumn. What about you? Do any of the other 3 seasons even come close to Autumn for you or is Autumn #1 by far? Tell us today in the Hang Out!

    Out of the 4 season for me it's easily #1 (Autumn). Spring, Summer, and Winter are all WELL behind it. I do enjoy spring and I like summer but neither can compete with Autumn as a whole. Have a great Dozen Days of February!​

    Autumn is #1 by far. Autumn has just as many if not more exciting things going on than the other three seasons combined. We decorate our house three times in Autumn (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). You just can't beat it!

    Autumn is definitely my favorite season! The cool crisp air, all the different shades of red, orange and yellow. Pumpkins and apples everything and everywhere. The build up to Halloween, seeing the kids trick or treating, The build up to Thanksgiving and enjoying Thanksgiving with great food, family, friends and plenty of laughs. The build up to Christmas. Yup nothing better!

    Autumn is definitely my #1 too. The decorations are a bonus, but it definitely is the feeling that comes with the weather cooling off and the build up to the holidays.

    Happy February Teens. We're into the teens (of days) and the temps coming up tomorrow night might get down into the teens too. As we continue talking about our love for different times of year it's time to get away from "seasons" and talk about a 4 month stretch!

    The Bers. It encompasses all of Autumn, but ALSO, late summer and early winter (which includes Christmas Eve & Day). The Bers has everything. It has football season, apple pie, Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Christmas Season. It has everything in it. As much as we enjoy the 8 previous months most of us here look at it like an 8 month road to a 4 month Bers. Being in the Bers feels different than being in the other 8 months of the year. The Bers feel more special as a whole. Every day seems a little more special and important. I know that some days may seem "normal" and days in September, at times, might still feel kind of ho hum to you but being that close to the big 3 holidays is special. And being in the Bers is special. And having football season on is special. And as a whole the Bers just feels different. It's ironic how those 4 months all end in BER but they do. And they're a very special time of the year for us. Bers fans thoughts on the Bers? Tell us today how much you love the Bers as a whole in the Hang Out!

    I'm a Bers guy. Always have been and always will be. Over the years I've enjoyed some other months for sure but my heart and soul has always been in the Bers and always will be. Have a great February Teens!​

    Love the Bers too....after Labor Day it just hits me that we are into the best months of the year. Definitely that feeling of excitement of what is to come. I love seeing all the fall decorations in stores and on people's houses.

    Right after Labor Day is when I switch over to listening to holiday old time radio, starting with Halloween, of course. It’s exciting because we have entered the best time of the year filled with fun times with beloved family and friends.

    Do you ever listen to fall/winter OTR while running a Yule log on your TV or computer screen? Very "hygge"!

    Labor Day weekend is when the Fall decorations leave the shed and make their way into the house . . . with College football on the TV of course!

    Happy Valentine's Day! Oh yeah our love continues today by talking about the one thing we all love more than anything else. I'm pretty sure we can narrow it down to one specific season when it comes to #1 for us!

    The Christmas Season is the best time of year. I think everyone here would agree with that. After all, as much as we love Autumn, the Bers, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and even some summer fans when it comes to #1 the holiday for most of us is Christmas. And really its the entire season which Crown has really zoned in on for us all year long. That's the best time of the year. It's the "most wonderful" time of the year right? That's how the song goes and it certainly is accurate. Having the Christmas Season around is just extra ultra special. Work feels different. The malls feel different. Everyone seems different. The weather gets different. Everything is special. And that's how we love it here. Of course, the long break leading up to it makes it extra special for as much as we love the Christmas Season it wouldn't mean the same if we had it several times a year. Everyone here agree the Christmas Season is still #1 when it comes to your "love" for any specific season? All the wrapping presents, Christmas shopping, Christmas music, food and family traditions? Tell us today in the Hang Out!

    The Christmas Season is still #1. It proves it time and time again and this year I will make sure I do not forget that. Keep everything in perspective. That's what I'm saying. Have a great Valentine's Day!​
