A LOVD {Giveaway}: Ohio's Amish Country

There is no place else in Ohio that encapsulates the essence of Autumn as does Ohio's Amish Country. The glistening sun spotlights the crimson and golden leaves amid the panoramic, rolling countryside, all for your viewing enjoyment. This showcase of color is one of the best you'll find in the Buckeye State.

During the summer month's I posted our Staycation Adventures through Amish Country; read Part One and Part Two. These posts will help you plan the best trip possible if you're not familiar with the Walnut Creek and Sugar Creek areas. And, it will introduce you to the Der Dutchman Restaurant and Carlisle Gifts, today's giveaway sponsor.

NOW for the Giveaway: The generous folks at the Der Dutchman Restaurant are offering dinner for two at their fantastic, yummy establishment along with a $25 gift certificate to Carlisle Gifts (there is seriously not another gift shop around as beautiful as this place). And because the fine people at Dutchman Hospitality love to spread the wealth, they are offering 2 additional $25 gift certificates to Carlisle Gifts, as well. Not from Ohio and not planning to visit any time soon? No problem! Carlisle Gifts has a great online store carrying beautiful hardwood cutting boards, adorable wooden biscuit cutters, oh, I can go on and on. So be sure to enter no matter where you are from!

It's SO EASY to enter - rules are simple this time around. All you have to do is leave a comment AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WOULD LIKE indicating what you like best about the fall season. Each comment will be considered as an entry. You have until Sunday, October 16 to leave your comments for entry.

Oh, it might be easier to list what I don't like...what the lovely commentors said above plus... open windows on cool nights, nature walks around town and the lake, weekends by the fire-pit wondering the glory of the stars, baseball playoffs and world series (although my fave sport is NFL and Boise State Broncos), roasting pumpkin seeds with my daughter, going up to the Blue Ridge Mountains to enjoy the fall foliage... and this weekend we will be front and center cheering on Jeff Gordon at the Charlotte Motor Speedway - there is no sport that loves their family fans more than NASCAR, their fall race here in Charlotte is our fave.

I forgot to say thank you for the tour of Ohio's Amish Country. I loved the entire part one and two. We lived in PA and NJ and Amish Country PA was our fave destination as a newlywed couple. We plan to take the kids to PA for the Gettysburg Anniversary in 2013 - and that will be part of our trip.

I love really being able to enjoy the outdoors, without the beating hot sun and high humidity!

I love the changing colors of the trees...nature does not lie. Wish I was able to decorate my house with these warms tones...it's so nurturing like a warm blanket!
