So maybe all this fall stuff is overrated. Still, fall is becoming one of my favorite seasons, and here are a few things I’m thankful about for it.
Halloween. And Thanksgiving. Two awesome holidays. Especially appropriate that THANKSgiving makes its appearance in a things-i’m-thankful-for article, right? Still, those two are really enjoyable holidays. I love Halloween, and friends, and dressing up….and I love my family’s Thanksgiving turkeys and housecleaning. And leftovers. Only, I end up stuffing myself to death 😛
COLORS. Honestly, fall colors are one of the most beautiful things. Photographic opportunity, too.
Pumpkin. Not necessarily pumpkin spice lattes (though those are good…#guiltypleasure) but pumpkin muffins, bread, and even carved pumpkins. I carved my pumpkins last year and I’m never going to not carve them again. Carving is too good.
Cinnamon. For some reason, I associate this scent with fall. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, pumpkin…mmm.
School. I know, I know, we’re supposed to hate school, but there’s something so pleasing about going back to school and back to school crafts and keeping all your papers organized. Even if you’re writing a blog article while you’re supposed to be doing a negative constructive. Oh, or if you’re trying to figure out how schoolwork partnerships work.
Plaid. I’m sort of infamous about my annoyance with Scotland, but I *love* plaid. It wouldn’t feel like fall without plaid. When I was younger, my sisters and I would await the fall Land’s End catalog, and for the longest time I very much wanted a plaid school skirt. Now I have an associations with fall and plaid…
Cooler weather. Unpopular opinion: I hate summer heat. Cool weather all the way!! Cool weather also means some more things: Boots, sweaters and scarves–that I love about fall.
So there are some things I enjoy about fall, and very sorry if I haven’t been posting regularly. What are some things YOU love about fall? I’d love to read about it on your blogs!
