What’s Your Favorite Thing About Autumn?
Happy first day of autumn, friends!
I have to admit that this day always feels a little bittersweet for this summer-loving girl. While everyone else has been breaking out the pumpkin and chunky sweaters this month, I have been making coconut margaritas and playing Death Cab and freezing my toes off in flip flops and booking tickets for an upcoming beach vacation. It would be quite alright with me if summer spontaneously decided to pack its bags and stay awhile longer. :)
But as much as I love summer, I do really love the idea of seasons in life, and seasons changing. So if we must move on from summer, I suppose a beautiful season like fall will do. (Although autumn seems to me a much lovelier word, so we’ll stick with that.) So today I started making a little list of things I’m looking forward to about this season. So far, I have…
- poems like this
- warm tones (in leaves, in clothing, in seasonal produce, everywhere)
- cool breezes + open windows
- my favorite hot cinnamon spice tea every day
- all. the. scarves.
- slow cooked everything
- fall tv show premieres
- book club campout
- sweater season for my pup
- tall boots
- crisp walks around downtown KC
- friend trips booked
- mulled wine
- foot duvets
- crackling fires
- caramels, caramel sauce, caramel everything
What about you? Do you love this season? What’s on your list this autumn?
