“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.
