Time for another wordy post! This idea was inspired after I visited my town's fall festival today. Seeing everyone gather in downtown made me feel so happy. Therefore, I decided to create a small list explaining some of the other things that make the season worthwhile.
This one is pretty simple. Pumpkins are just amazing. You can never go wrong with anything flavored Pumpkin Spice (in my opinion). Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin ice cream, etc. The ideas are endless with pumpkin. Going to Trader Joe's is pretty dangerous for me in the fall. I love the look of them too. Pumpkin flavored candles and soaps are my inner weakness. Plus, who doesn't love carving out one for Halloween?
2. Fall colors
Maroon, dark purple, dark orange, dark green, gold, etc. My nails are pretty much painted maroon/gold the entire season. I prefer fall colors in clothing as opposed to spring pastels. The colors of leaves everywhere is pretty amazing. Seeing the tree lined streets make me smile. I love to take pictures with my friends jumping in the leaves!
3. Not to hot, not to cold
Fall is one of those in between seasons. It is not boiling hot, like summer, and it is not freezing, like winter. Plus, it doesn't have the added spring allergies. I know some people have fall allergies, but there tends to be less people than in spring. Personally, my allergies get pretty bad around March-April. Hence, fall is the best mid-range weather of the year because I'm not spending it with my face in a tissue. You can cozy up in a jeans + sweater and be warm.
4. TV shows
Waiting for the new season of any show can be hard through summer, but once fall comes, everything is back on. I love getting to watch all my favorite shows, and it's sad they don't run in the summer. Additionally, many new shows come on which can also be exciting. That being said, fall is great when the season premiere of Once Upon a Time comes on. (who's excited??)
5. Vegetables ( and Fruits)
Although I already listed Pumpkin as it's own point, a lot of other amazing vegetables come out in the fall. My favorite time of the year for fruits would be summer, because I'm a berry/melon lover. But in the fall, all of the squashes come out. My favorite kind of squash is acorn sqash. I also love spaghetti squash as a pasta base. Sweet potatoes, ginger, apples. figs and more add food excitement to fall.
That is it for my favorite things about fall. Let me know in the comments what you love (or hate) about fall time. Also, let me know if I'm not the only who thinks about these months as: September, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. I'm thinking about writing a fall bucket list, so that might be coming up in the future. Have a great week and an amazing start to fall!
