Is It Fall Yet?

“And I go back to watchin summer fade to fall, Growin up too fast and I do recall, Wishin time would stop right in its tracks” – Kenny Chesney “I Go Back”

I feel like a bad person; bad Canadian for that matter. One thing you don’t do is wish the summer away – YOU. JUST. DON’T.

It seems like since August 1, I have been craving the fall. I have been trying to suppress this craving, afraid for it to surface. I have no idea what it is, after all it is still pretty hot here. I think it must be from all the ‘back to school’ ads. Back to school = fall, even if September is still considered summer.

I can’t seem to wait for the dark nail polish, the hot lattes, the fuzzy socks, the cozy blankets, the cool mornings, the cinnamon, the pumpkins, the hot soups, Jamie intently watching football, soft pretzels, the yoga pants, the scarfs, the chunky sweaters. I. CAN’T. WAIT.

But I am trying to. I am trying to suck in as much summer as possible. I have been trying to sit outside on the deck for a little bit each day with my Kindle. I have been trying to embrace the heat, even if it is just for a little bit longer.

After all, it won’t be long before I am longing to be doing just that. Once fall comes, it is like we have 1 month of perfect weather and then it is just a burden.

Falling Into Autumn

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”  – Lauren DeStefano

Fall has to be my favourite season. There is nothing I love more than fuzzy socks, leg warmers, big sweaters, blankets and a hot drink. I am so happy that fall is officially here – in my mind at least. I don’t understand how the calendar date is still weeks away. Fall for me starts on the first day of school!

School started on September 3rd this year. I was pretty down for the most part. This was the first time in 16 years where I did not participate as it is all over. I don’t know what I miss the most about starting school every year, but I know I was definitely the most upset over not having to go to Staples and getting all my favourite pens, highlighters, thick paper, and notebooks. I am such a nerd. I sound ridiculous.

To over compensate missing school, I have moved my attention to fall. I have been wearing nothing but scarves, long sleeves, jeans, socks and running shoes. I have also been Jonesing for pumpkins and spice goodies. Luckily for my my mom is quite the pumpkin flavored addict (not as bad as her hand vacuum) and needed little convincing to start with fall baking. We have decided to bake something which involved pumpkin every Sunday for 7-8 weeks. Ambitious? Definitely.

Happy Fall everyone!!!!
