Fall is definitely my favorite season of the year. That honor used to belong to Spring, but it's all about Fall now. I just love it! Here are a few reasons why:
Crisp, Cool Weather
I am not a fan of warm weather, so Fall is the perfect foil for the horribleness that is Summer. I love stepping outside and breathing deeply of the fog filled morning. It's refreshing and feels oh-so-good on my lungs.
I have yet to order a Pumpkin Spice Latte (from anywhere...basic?), but I love all things pumpkin. Pie, candles, pumpkin pie spice, lotion. If it's pumpkin, I'm game. Mmmm
Ah, science. It's so beautiful!
Only the BEST holiday of the entire year! I love spooky things and what better time to partake in things like that than Halloween. Scary costumes, candy, scary movies, little kids dressed up so cute! And I absolutely love carving pumpkins! I love it all.
Snuggly, Cozy Blankets
Curling up in a cushy chair or couch with a snuggly blanket is the best. I wrap myself in all that fluffy wonderfulness and crack open a book or pop in a movie. It's glorious.
There's nothing like sweater weather.
Along with sweaters, who doesn't love a great pair of boots! They make you feel so cozy.
I am in love with rain. And storms. The sound of rain is soothing and I sleep so much better when it's stormy.
I have an abundance of scarves. Maybe too many, but I lie to myself and say that's not true. The BF refuses to buy me any more scarves. He'll cave :)
Travel for Work
Fall marks the time of year when I'm able to get out of the office for work sometimes. Though not my primary job, I get the opportunity to tag along with admissions counselors and participate in high school on-site admission events for the university where I work. These are often heavily scheduled in the month of November, and we're incredibly slammed in general, but it's so rewarding telling a 17/18 year old that they CAN go to a university!
So what are some of your favorite things about Fall?
