So what’s my idea of a hot autumn night? Interesting question.
As a born and raised Ohio girl that has lived in Florida for the last fifteen years, my idea of a “hot autumn night” has changed dramatically. It used to be sitting by a fire, sipping hot cocoa or hot apple cider (usually spiked with some kind of goodness). Sometimes roasting marshmallows on sticks we found in the woods and eating the gooey goodness, all the while talking and laughing about life.
In Florida, there are really only three seasons – warm, hot and hotter than hell! Autumn here is quite different than up north. There are no leaves changing colors right before leaving the branches barren. There is no crispness in the air and football can be watched in shorts and a bikini top. J
These days I find myself spending some autumn nights with my husband at the beach, watching the sunset and listening to the drum circle. We bring a bottle of wine, some cheese and crackers and point our beach chairs towards the water. The sun floats from the sky and sinks into the Gulf of Mexico all to the rhythmic beat of the drums. It’s hot! It’s romantic! And it’s how I spend some of my Hot Autumn Nights!

Wow! Your hot night is fabulous. Here, it is so difficult to have time alone with my husband. We enjoy snuggling and just watching a movie in the peace of our bedroom, when possible. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com
My hot Autumn night involves hot cocoa, my snuggie and a good book! And my honey to cuddle with!
Living in Florida, snuggies aren’t usually necessary…but I do love to cuddle! Thanks, April!
Something outdoors, whether its watching (or playing) sports or just enjoying nature. It always give a good reason to cuddle up close once the sunset comes.
Cuddling… yes! Love that! Thanks for stopping by!

A hot autumn night would have to be spent in bed, either with my love or a great romance book. Thank you for being part of the hop and for the chance at your book! I do love a good firefighter story.

Haha, Carolyn, sometimes I have to choose between my love and a great romance book too! Most of the time my love wins out! 😉
Hot cocoa and steamy reads are in my hot autumn nights.
