A few reasons I love fall....

Fall is my favorite season. Always has been...

Actually, since we've moved to the southwest ..... winter (being the months December- March) has become my favorite season. But our "winter" in Tucson is like the "fall" in the midwest. Cool, crispy, and gorgeous!

But I have to get excited. It's not supposed to hit 100 degrees at all this week! In fact, today is a nippy 87 degrees! Time to get out my underarmour!

So here are a few favorites about my favorite season............
  • Sweaters
  • Blue jeans
  • Football (not that I'm a big football fan...but I must say I enjoy the idea of it)
  • Back-to-School shopping (I don't partake in this either, obviously...but it brings back good memories of shopping with my Mom to picking out new notebooks, pencils, and gym shoes for the school year)
  • Squash
  • Butternut squash soup
  • Leaves changing (we won't see this until November-December...and cacti don't change color really :-))
  • Coffeemate releases the Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint coffee creamers. Holy yum. This causes me to brew a 1/2 pot at 4:00 pm (which I'm currently doing this Monday afternoon)
  • Apple cider (maybe with a little Hot Damn to give it a kick)
  • Oktoberfest
  • No more shorts and tank tops. Hurray!!
  • Cool temps in the morning, so I can say goodbye to that tredmill!
Yay fall!

I love fall too - the leaves changing colours and the sweaters have always been my favourite parts!

I love fall, too! The air feels so different, but I dread what follows in the midwest! So far we are having an unusually warm fall which I am enjoying to the hilt!

I love fall, too. The sun feels different, which I love. And the air smells so good, I want to can it and store it and release it during the winter doldrums.

I don't like football either but I too like the IDEA of football.
