This post is LOOOOOONG overdue.
We are a couple of weeks into Autumn at this point, aren’t we? Well, I am FINALLY getting the chance to truly enjoy it in my every day life, and I hope you are as well!
Autumn is my absolute favorite time of the year! I have compiled a list (which took no time at all) for why it makes me so happy. Here it does:
The air is crisp, seemingly clearer
Sunsets are more vibrant
The nights are starrier, and the stars brighter
Cuddling is a necessity
Socks and shoes are no longer my enemy. So the ones have been hiding at the bottom of my underwear drawer and closet for the past 6 or so months (4 if you live in the Midwest in the year 2013) come out to play
Just the prospect of making apple sauce and apple pie. I haven’t made either in many moons, but maybe this year…
Rebellion. When it is cold outside and I go out for ice cream anyway (which, according to my previous post-link-may be coming to a screeching halt this year. Maybe)
The sunset maple in my family’s front lawn. It makes up for the beach sunsets I am missing but once-a-year when the leaves turn a fiery red.
No longer waking up drenched like I just ran a 5k…or in my case 5 feet
The holidays are just around the corner. Which, this year, mark moderation in both eating and spending in preparation for this expensive wedding where I have to look good in those expensive pictures. Next year I can go back to gaining my yearly 5 pounds in the span of 1 month.
I would be lying if I left out pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING
But what I am really looking forward to is peppermint-flavored everything (including peppermint mochas made with dark chocolate from caribou!)
What are your favorite parts about fall? I could go on for days, but instead I am going to get shit done so I can enjoy a nice fall evening watching my brother play soccer.
