The morning air crispness, the patchwork of color, game day, and of course all things pumpkin…these are a few of my favorite fall things.    

And I’m not alone in my autumn love affair. #FirstDayofFall was a #1 trending topic on social media this week, especially among fellow HGTV'ers.

With all the home and garden activities that fall brings, it’s easy to get excited about this time of year. And the excitement is contagious.

Here are nine times this week you made us fall hard for fall:

9. A backyard party with the Kitchen Cousins? Yes, please.
8. HGTV viewer Shannon is getting her harvest thumb on.
7. Linda Phan and Drew Scott share a nifty Fall Break re-org hack.

6. Chip and Joanna Gaines are busy with a Fixer Upper at their new marketplace.

Look at these amazing old pine floors that are being installed at the new storefront in the silos! #gettingclose @magnoliamarket

5. It's a "say-something-hat" kinda day for Genevieve Gorder.

Hat season is back! Mama happy.

4. Carley Knobloch, you know just how to capture our hearts.
3. Who’s ready for a road trip?
2. E! Online, you almost make us look forward to raking leaves...almost.
1. Julie Chen, we’d love to take a stroll with you…perhaps while enjoying a pumpkin spice latte?

Who else has fallen for fall? Whether you’re starting a new project or just soaking up the season, we’d love to see how you celebrate.

Share your DIY crafts, decorations, or photos from your backyard on Instagram and Twitter, and be sure to add hashtag #HGTVFall. 

Happy Fall, y’all!
