I love fall!

“I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.” ― Lee Maynard

I love fall. I just love fall. I usually start celebrating the day after labor day so I can get an extra 2-3 weeks in there of fall. On my official “start date” I was telling Jamie about all the things which I love about fall; he basically looked at me like deer in headlights as I went into the girl in the mirror.. You know, “If you look in the mirror and say ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte’ a girl will appear in yoga pants and tell you all the things she loves about fall”.. I was that girl. I am that girl.

So just to be that girl again, these are just a few of the reasons I am in love with fall.

//1. Sweaters, sweater weather, being cozy. My favourite weather is the one where it is too chilly to just have a t-shirt on, but not cold enough for a jacket. Sweather Weather. Put on a sweater and you are good to go. I love sweaters. I love Sweater Weather.

//2. Blankets. I don’t think there is anything better than curling up under a blanket on a cold fall night, or morning, and being all bundled underneath it.

//3.  Changes colours. So pretty. The end. I don’t understand how people can live in places where there are no seasons and cannot see and feel the change in the air…… but then winter comes and I think I start to get it – especially being in Canada where we all live in igloos.

//4. Scarves! I love wearing scarves. I have more than I would like to admit. I think they totally finish off an outfit. A scarf and a sweater; what better weather would you like?

//5. Fuzzy socks and leg warmers. There is nothing better than being cozy.

//6. Kindle. I adore my Kindle, and although I use it all year, there is just something special of being bundled up with a book on a cold fall morning o r night.

//7. Starbucks seasonal drinks. Nothing goes better with a cozy blanket, socks, scarves, sweater, and a good book, like a Starbucks. I mentioned I don’t like the Pumpkin Spice Latte (Love the frap though), but I do love the Salted Caramel Mocha (lactose free!), and although not seasonal the Caramel Apple Spice (Half sweet, no whip)… I think I just realized I like Caramel. I guess I need to stop telling people “I hate caramel”.

//8. Candles. Bath and Body Works. Like I said in number 7, “nothing goes better with….” just add “candles” to that list.

I just love fall……
– Just not as much as Christmas.
….And don’t get me started on  the fact I hate Halloween.
Seriously, it’s the one day which stands between ME and decorating for Christmas.
I am not American, and No I will not wait for the American Thanksgiving to be over
before I start decorating. Seriously what kind of BS logic is that? 
I do not understand Canadians with that logic. 
Jamie’s stepdad is  American,  so maybe I should should follow that ‘logic’.. But I won’t.
Okay, that rant escalated quickly.

  1. leggings, boots, leg warmers, oversized sweaters, scarves, hats and mittens, candles, and of course PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES!!!!!! woot woot! ps- i love the thing about living in igloos, but you forgot to add that you all are maple syrup makers.

    • Hahaha, would it surprise you if I told you that about a year ago the city came and planted a maple tree on everyone’s property… I live on the corner, we have 2 maple trees…. I also get around by dog sled on occasion.

  2. Fall is my favorite too! I cannot fathom living anywhere that didn’t have 4 distinct seasons – even if I loathe winter at times! I had my first pumpkin spice latte AND I wore a scarf for the first time this year – aka I was the definition of a basic white girl bahaha!

    • I totally agree! I pretty much loathe winter December 26-Onward (so may? ha), but I definitely wouldn’t change it. I feel bad complaining about winter too, southern Ontario is nothing compared to the prairies.. We just call the military in when things get too much.

    • More excited!! Yay!! Something about fall just makes me so warm and fuzzy inside. I am so sad it is slowly coming to an end. The nights are getting pretty damn cold.. People tell me “well it is Canada” – it kind of makes me want to bitch slap them… or my favourite “you don’t complain about the warmth in the summer so you shouldn’t complain about the cold in the winter”.. Seriously? WTF does that even mean?

      • Haha, this really made me cackle actually, lucky I’m home alone, not in Starbucks, attracting odd looks. 😀

        ‘Bitch slap them’ 😀 Oh, I know what you mean, I’m currently in Warsaw and yesterday was the FIRST FREEZING DAY, which just shocked me, I mean the biting cold. And all I heard was: ‘Well, it’s Poland’…

        YOU DON’T SAY. I though I was in Hawaii. No?

      • I just saw this! I wasn’t ignoring you. First of all, I am jealous you are in Poland, Warsaw especially. I would love to tour Auschwitz (in a non excited way. I have no idea how to write that and not come across like I am going to an amusement park). I actually was looking in on doing it on a weekend which came to a hault as it would involve me not sleeping for 3 days…. Moving on, I hate that response “It’s Poland” “It’s Canada” “It’s the North Pole”. Just because I am here doesn’t mean I A) Love it B) want to be so cold I think I can feel frost bite C) Will stop complaining.
