Autumn Love

I’m a fall baby so it is no wonder that I have a special affinity for the season. Like most, I love the changing of the leaves and the crispness in the air, but those aren’t what I love most about fall. First off, I love that it has two names and of the two autumn is my favorite. It is so romantic and evocative. But that is only the beginning, I love seeing my local Dairy Queen advertising Pumpkin Spice Blizzards. Those things are amazing and I don’t even like pumpkin pie. I love finally seeing caramel apples in my local grocery store and the first biting taste of apple cider of the year. I know, you’re thinking I only love the tastes of fall, but that’s not true. I love snuggling up on my couch on the weekends when the wind is blowing and knowing that I don’t have to face the chilly weather if I don’t want to. I love hearing the reverberation of Friday night announcers’ voices as they explain what’s going on during that night’s football game, even though I’m not at the game. I love flipping through magazines to see what this year’s new boots will look like, even if I have to intention of sporting them. And don’t get me started on big sweaters. When the first leaves fall off the trees, I know I can finally dig out my big sweaters and lose myself in their comfort. Summer is my favorite season, but the charms of autumn sure do give her a run for her money! So what do you love about fall? Are they my favorite things or whole different slew of wonders that make you happy when the leaves turn?
