There’s only one bad thing I can say about fall, and that is that it ends in winter. It would be just fine with me if fall went straight into spring, skipping all that ghastly white stuff that forces you to slip and die. Also, it contains Halloween, which I hate, so I guess that’s two things. But everything else has caused me to be head-over-heels, can’t stop thinking about, totally and completely in love with the season we call fall.
I love the crispness in the air.
I love apple cider.
I love the trees changing colors, and somehow , the leaves doing their best ‘living’ right before they fall gives me great comfort. Feel free to mock me for it.
Cloudy weather, but still warm enough to be outside. The rain with virtually no chance of turning to snow.
I love the sweaters, the denim jackets, the boots, oh, the glorious boots. I wish I had more than one pair, but the more glorious the boot, the more expensive, unfortunately.
Basically, new fall clothing gets me giddy.
Back to school time. My kids are getting older, so this year is resulting in some serious one-on-one time with each kid, which is awesome beyond words. Also, they leave for large chunks of the day, leaving me to my chocolates in peace.
I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, any food that contains ‘pumpkin’ –I’m in.
And the smell…the one I can’t describe poetically enough because I am not a poet, but you all know what I am talking about - that fall scent in the air. Perfection beyond words.
It doesn’t last nearly long enough for my taste, and when that first frost comes, something in me dies a little. For now, I will just enjoy each day as it comes, and crunch the leaves, and watch people raking and cursing, and just enjoy my absolute favorite season of the year, one day at a time.
Oh, and I asked my husband what his favorite thing about fall was. His answer? The football.
