The first day of fall is September 22 and I can’t wait! Fall is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it. The weather gets cooler, which is definitely a relief around here. Even having had a slightly cooler summer with the rain this year, it was still miserably hot to me. I think I may have to move further up north. Georgia is just too hot and humid for me during the summers. Plus I like to have actual seasons. I lived in Virginia for a few years and loved having four distinct seasons. Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring. And I kind of miss the snow.
Regardless, I still love Fall around here. The leaves change, the days cool, and the Fall clothes come out. Boots and scarves and cozy sweaters. Sometimes I’m not sure if I like the season or just the clothes. Of course I think part of it is that I still associate this time of year with school starting. I loved school when I was younger and while I enjoyed summer, I still got excited when it was time to start school again. I loved the school supply shopping and getting ready for that first day. It’s probably where I got my stationery obsession.
I love the smells of the burning leaves, pumpkin, and vanilla. I love the holidays that are associated with Fall. Halloween is just so fun and it gives me an excuse to be silly and eat candy. And Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful and be with family… and eat. (I’m sure you can see my priorities. lol)
Do you enjoy this time of year as I do? Or do you have another season that you like better?
